How To Clean Mushrooms

Joanne Slavin PhD. RD., the study’s author and a professor at the University of Minnesota, stated the following:
Previous studies on mushrooms suggest that they can be more satiating than meat; this effect had not been studied with protein-matched amounts until now.
Eating mushrooms several times per week is linked with a healthy body weight and reduced waist circumference.

Mushrooms anti-cancer compounds play a crucial role as a reactive oxygen species inducer, mitotic kinase inhibitor, anti-mitotic, angiogenesis inhibitor and lead to apoptosis, and eventually checking cancer proliferation. (source)

High inflammation is the root of most diseases.
A high inflammation can trigger a decline in cognitive function, mood problems, low energy and age-related neurodegenerative diseases.
Mushrooms also help alkalize the body, which is associated with improved immunity.
They also have the natural ability to fight dangerous bacteria and viruses.
They are even shown to have special fighting abilities against deadly bacterial strains and microorganisms responsible for gut and skin problems.

They are a great source of vitamin B, which help support adrenal function and turn nutrients from food into useable energy.
Protect Your Heart With Mushrooms
Eating more mushrooms is one way to lower cholesterol levels naturally.
Mushrooms have sterol compounds that interfere with the production of cholesterol in the liver, yet at the same time they can raise HDL “good” cholesterol.
They also contain potent phytonutrients that help keep cells from sticking to blood vessel walls and forming plague buildup, which maintains healthy blood pressure and improves circulation.
