Syangu, black mushroom, aromatic mushroom

The mushroom obtained its name for its particular gustative qualities and for its colour. Is known in the entire world with another name : Reclining Buddha’s mushroom.

In ancient Japan, when they cultivated the mushroom, the monks beat with a wooden hammer in a tree, on which the mushroom was growing, with the only purpose to awake the «sleeping mycelium» and also Buddha himself, not to forget to put in Shiitake special therapeutic properties.

The Shiitake’s therapeutic properties are unique, fact confirmed by the fungotherapy’s multi-millenary history and the numerous clinical researches in Europe, America, Russia. For biochemistry this mushroom became sensational, because were simultaneously made two discoveries:the «lentinan» polysaccharide selected for the first time and having an unique antitumor property, unequalled in vegetal world and similar volatile compounds, called «fungic phystocides», able to fight any viruses, from the slightest rhinovirus (viruses causing common cold) up to the viruses of AIDS disease.

Lentinan is used in the complex antitumoral therapy as preparation, slowing down the development of various tumours and preventing the formation of metastasis by activating the immunitary system. Lentinan is connected to the surface of lymphocytes or specific proteins from serum that activates macrophages, T-helper cells, natural killer cells and other cells with effect. These mechanisms of activation lead to increase the production of antibodies, interleukins (IL-1, IL-2, IL-12) and Y-interferon. In this way, the lentinan’s antitumoral effect is expressed in the increase of the immunity status.

The polysaccharide’s immunomodulating action allows to be used in case of some different immunodeficiency conditions. Using the Shiitake’s Lentinan leads to the restoration of the diminished activity  of the immunocompetent cells. In this sense, takes place the restoration of T-helpers’ activity, revealing a series of biologically active factors, which increase the number of activated macrophages, antigen-specific cytotoxic T-lymphocytes, indurates the cooperative interaction of immunocompetent cells. Shiitake has a unique capacity to eliminate the cholesterol, contributes to blood pressure’s normalization, removes the organism’s pathogenic flora. Shiitake is a wonderful immunoregulator and may be used as a prophylactic mean of prevention of viral diseases and colds.

In case of diabetes is used as a remedy to reduce glycaemia, its use is demonstrated also as insulin addiction, especially for the prophylaxis of the disease’s complications. In general, the mushroom is differentiated by a very large spectrum of the therapeutic action.
