Shiitake
Shiitake mycelia extract is also known 2S Lentinus edodes mycelia extract. The mycelia of shiitake is the immature growing stage of the shiitake lifecycle. It grows as long threads, and absorbs and transforms lignans and other nutrients in the wood or culture medium it is growing in, before creating the fruiting body we think of as a mushroom. Shiitake mycelia extract is considered valuable by modern herbalists to support treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome, herpes simplex types 1 and 2, western equine encephalitis, for liver problems such as hepatitis, and for other virus-induced conditions. Shiitake mycelia is rich in carbohydrates, protein, vitamins and minerals. The polysaccharide-protein complex, a new peptidomannan, KS 2, and a water-solubilized lignin derivative, EPS-3, are key constituents of the extract.

It's recommended that one take 500 to 1000 mg vitamin C along with Shitakii to assist in absorption and uptake.
