mushroom benefits


Did you know that mushrooms contain some of the most powerful medical properties on the planet? There exist more than 140,000 types of mushroom-forming fungi but unfortunately, science is only familiar with almost 10 percent of them.


One of the biggest features mushrooms seem to have is their immune-boosting properties which act as a real superfood! Mushrooms contain many vital vitamins, minerals and other important nutrients. Below, we’ve created a list of the reasons why you need to get fungy and start consuming them as often as you can!



Mushrooms and your immune system


There are many studies that for many years have been constantly proved the benefits mushrooms have at a person’s immune system. When mushrooms are constantly consumed, the immune system improves its work by more than 20 percent! The proliferation cells get improved and also, the A immunoglobulin production, (else known as IgA), is strongly activated and increased. IgA is an antibody that plays a very important part in the mucosal immunity.



Mushrooms and cancer


There is no doubt about the fact mushrooms help us fight cancer. There are many elements mushrooms contain, mostly antioxidants, which can significantly reduce the cancer cell production. When consuming them on a daily basis, you get to have some of the most powerful antioxidant that are crucial for your cell work and growth. Try to choose only natural raised mushrooms that are less affected by different heavy metal and air pollution. Especially since mushrooms have the ability to attract these elements that can cause serious health-related problems. Natural grown mushrooms are the ones that are packed with the most powerful, healthy nutrients that nature can offer.



Mushrooms and vitamin D


Mushrooms have the power to increase your vitamin D levels significantly. This happens due to the fact mushrooms are the only vegetable and fruit on earth that contains this vitamin! Vitamin D is one of the most essential nutrients people need to be healthy. Unfortunately, 99.9 percent of all foods that nature has to offer us doesn’t contain this vitamin. The only sources helping us get this vital vitamin are some dairy products and Sun that helps our body produce it by itself. Well, until now! You need to learn that another great course of this vitamin are also mushrooms. When mushrooms get in touch with the sunlight before you get to consume them, means they convert their plant sterol ergosterol elements into vitamin D.



Mushrooms and a decreased Adrenal Fatigue


Athletes might have been underestimating mushrooms. This is due to the fact, most of the mushrooms we commonly find on grocery stores, have the capacity to increase the oxygen carrying amount. On the other hand, fight adrenal fatigue. They also reduce stress and work as atonic to your body by increasing the energy levels.
