The Research Institute of the National Cancer Center in Tokyo, Japan wondered why the cancer rates in the Nagano Prefecture of Japan were abnormally low compared to surrounding provinces. Researchers found it was the center of enoki mushroom cultivation.
Flammulina velutipes is a medicinal fungus belonging to the class Basidiomycetes with a high medicinal therapeutic value. The Enoki mushroom has been used in conventional Chinese and Japanese medicine for a long time like a tonic for liver infection, elevated cholesterol levels, stomach sicknesses, and hypertension level.
Enoki is also known as “the longevity mushroom” because of its high concentration of Vitamin D. That means you can enjoy this delicious treat every day knowing it has countless health benefits.
