Powerhouses! Mushrooms: Tasty and Healthy!

Mushrooms are not only a culinary delicacy, but also a source of good health. No matter which strain is your favorite, they are packed with important nutrients like fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

The Health Benefits of Mushrooms 

Mushrooms are great for your mood and bones, thanks to the presence of Vitamin D, also known as the 'sunshine vitamin'. This vitamin offers numerous benefits, including improving your mood and strengthening your bones.

B vitamins are essential to boost your energy levels. White mushrooms and oyster mushrooms are particularly rich in vitamins B2 and B3, two important components for energy. 

Many mushrooms are also rich in copper, a mineral that contributes to good energy levels. In addition, selenium, mainly found in Shiitake mushrooms, is known for its protective properties for the bladder. 

Interestingly, common white mushrooms may be able to boost our immune system. They do this by feeding the beneficial bacteria in our intestines. Since approximately 80% of our resistance lies in our intestines, mushrooms play an important role in maintaining a strong immune system. 

Did you know that all mushrooms contain some type of fiber that helps improve cholesterol levels in our blood? This contributes to a healthy heart. They also contain potassium, which is also good for heart health. 

For those who want to maintain or lose weight, mushrooms are an excellent choice. They are nutritious and low in calories. In addition, mushrooms have a cell-protective effect due to the antioxidants contained in them. 

Mushrooms in Traditional Medicine 

It is not surprising that mushrooms are receiving increasing attention, something that has been recognized in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. They are not only tasty, but also powerful natural products with many health benefits.
