Shiitake mushrooms predominantly grow in parts of Asia on dead, hardwood trees such as oak, chestnut and beech. The word shiitake stems from the chestnut tree ‘shita’ and the Japanese word for mushroom, 'take'. The use of shiitake mushrooms dates back to 199AD, when they were presented as gifts to the emperor and hailed as ‘the elixir of life’. Our shiitake is formulated from ten pounds of the highest grade of shiitake mushrooms which are then concentrated into one pound of potent and pure extract powder.
