WHY YOU NEED THE MIGHTY MUSHROOM TO AMPLIFY YOUR HEALTH
Mushrooms are a favourite in a wholefoods kitchen. In moments you can go from simplicity to something with a little more meatiness in a meal and give your nutrition a boost too.
Did you know…
Mushrooms are one of the only vegetarian sources of Vitamin D, a nutrient we obtain mostly from the sun. So if you’re working an office job or in parts of the world that perhaps don’t see enough of the sun, then it might be time to up the ante on your mushie intake to reap the D benefits.
They’re rich in beta-glucan – a soluble fibre which can help regulate blood glucose levels, making them an excellent option for diabetics and for those trying to curb their sugar cravings. Plus beta-glucan supports healthy cholesterol levels and supports the cardiovascular system in the process.
In traditional medicine, mushrooms such as reishi, cordyceps, chaga and shiitake are used for their potent anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties and to boost the immune system.
