Shiitake, Ginger, Citrus
The word 'Shiitake' comes from the Japanese name for a type of oak tree, and hence the name shii - oak, and take - mushroom. Shiitake has been revered for its medicinal value since the Song Dynasty in China (1100 AD) and was prized as an ‘elixir of life’ by the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Shiitake's major active compounds are linked to anti-viral & anti-bacterial effects.
