Enoki is a late fall and winter mushroom that lives in clusters on dead trees worldwide. It is cultivated in Japan, where its caps, due to cultivating conditions, are much smaller and lighter than those of wild fungi.

Enoki is a highly nutritious food rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, and crude fiber. Its polysaccharides are reported to possess a wide spectrum of biological functions including anti-oxidation, anti-tumor, anti-virus, anti-fatigue activities, and improvement of memory.

Enoki may be beneficial for digestion, cancer, high cholesterol, obesity, allergies, diabetes, anemia, high blood pressure, and to boost immunity.
