Shiitake mushrooms have antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties – because of these properties they provide incredible health benefits. From Dr. Axe’s very informative website, here are the top seven benefits of shiitake mushrooms:

  1. Shiitake mushrooms can help prevent body weight gain, fat deposition and plasma triacylglycerol when added to a high-fat diet
  2. Along with many other mushrooms, they help to boost the body’s immune system
  3. They support cardiovascular health via potent phytonutrients that help keep cells from sticking to blood vessel walls and forming plaque buildup, which maintains healthy blood pressure and improves circulation
  4. They contain anti-microbial properties
  5. Because they’re a great source of B-Vitamins they help boost energy, balance hormones, and improve brain function
  6. Shiitake mushrooms can also provide a decent source of Vitamin D, an essential vitamin
  7. Lastly, these mushrooms act as a natural acne treatment due to their selenium content
