The Japanese name of this mushroom means “gracefully unfolding mushroom”. This delicately-fringed, lacy mushroom folds like a fan when the climate is dry, then opens again in response to rain.
Suehirotake contains one of the most-studied mushroom constituents, the polysaccharide schizophyllan, which has been shown to stimulate immune response and support the body’s defenses. Like many medicinal mushrooms, Suehirotake has been used with success as a cancer treatment, both fighting the invading cancer cells and promoting their replacement with normal cell growth.
Suehirotake has also shown promise as a treatment for candida and chronic fatigue syndrome, increasing energy and vitality in both ailments. We find Suehirotake to be an excellent energy tonic, bringing a radiant quality of vitality and health.
