Shiitake mushroom extract is effective in helping to suppress cancer recurrence, and
in prolonging the lifespan of cancer patients. It also can be used as a nutritional supplement,
in a supplement blend, or added to any number of herbal formulas. Shiitake mushroom
extract is also a highly flavorful addition to dried soups or tonic drinks. For example in Japan,
it was widely applied in the medicine and health-protecting food.
