Shiitake mushrooms have a long history of use in many Asian countries as a food and as a medicine for its anti-cancer, immune regulating, anti-viral, anti-microbial, hepatoprotective, and cardiovascular (cholesterol lowering and blood pressure reducing) effects. However, with the medications you are currently taking, it is advisable to consult a local herbalist for monitoring before adding it to your daily routine.
