Many consume them for their earthy, satisfying flavor – and of course because Oyster Mushrooms pack a veritable vitamin punch when it comes to meeting recommended daily intakes. Although you may know that mushrooms are inherently healthy, wouldn’t it be nice if we broke it down and revealed just what makes them so spectacularly special? Well, here you go!
Cholesterol Cleaning Compounds
Oyster mushrooms have been shown controlled studies to have significant impacts in reducing triglycerides and LDL cholesterol. Triglycerides are a type of fat found in the bloodstream. When food is consumed, the body turns access calories it doesn’t need into triglycerides. These unused calories float around and circulate until they are needed for energy between meals. If they are never activated, they can build up and be an indicator that you have high levels of cholesterol that can lead to plaque buildup in the arteries.
Immune System Boosters
Mushrooms are simply the fruit of mycelium – a network of super fine fibers that are only one cell-wall thick. How can something so seemingly fragile be so resilient? The trick is in the amino acid compounds and antibiotics that the mycelium network produces and secretes. These natural antibiotics are super effective in fighting off the hosts of viruses, bacteria, and parasites that would readily feast on this otherwise defenseless, nutritious network. Eating mushrooms is like an immune booster for your own body, providing it with antibodies it can use to boost its immune system and fight off disease.
Vitamin D is a necessary vitamin that the human body needs maintain optimal health. Humans receive daily doses of vitamin D naturally from the sun. However, in the last 100 years people have been venturing out less and less on average – meaning they are being exposed to natural sunlight, and thus, lower amounts of Vitamin D. Mushrooms are one of the few foods with high levels of vitamin D. If you find yourself having to stay in more than you’d like, eating mushrooms is a great way to make sure you get the vitamin D your body needs so badly.
When we think of getting our vitamins, we typically think of eating more fruits and veggies – the green stuff! While it’s still important to eat your greens, keep in mind that mushrooms are packed with essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals – without being green at all! Oyster mushrooms from your home mushroom kit possess high levels of Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, and cholesterol lowering agents.
