Main characteristics of the Shiitake
Shiitake is an edible mushroom native to eastern Asia, also known as the Shii tree mushroom since it grows on the tree of that name. Since ancient times, the Shiitake mushroom has been valued as food for its qualities in fibre, minerals and vitamins .
Those same qualities are those that have made it popular in the West and is already becoming a food with a high esteem thanks to being an important source of Vitamin D .
Vitamin D plays a key role in the assimilation of Calcium and in the good maintenance of bone metabolism. A lack of this vitamin, associated with an increase in parathyroid hormone causes a significant loss of the bone matrix, so that supplements of both vitamin D and calcium are very important to consider.

Shiitake has another property that makes it a very interesting food: it contains β-D-Glucans. These are branched polysaccharides known as 'biological response modifiers' for their ability to activate the immune system . (2)
