The Mighty Mushroom: Health Benefits
- Mushrooms provide lean proteins with no cholesterol or fat, and offer a wealth of vitamins and minerals
- The fiber and certain enzymes in mushrooms help lower cholesterol levels
- Mushrooms are a good source of iron, which promotes the formation of healthy red blood cells
- Mushrooms are a rich source of calcium, an essential nutrient in the formation and strengthening of bones
- Mushrooms carry a signifiant presence of various polysaccharides, which are effective in preventing breast and prostate cancer

* Don’t ever try picking mushrooms for consumption in the wild. Mushrooms have the unique ability to absorb the material that they grow on, either good or bad. This quality is what gives mushrooms so much of their beneficial power, but also their dangerous aspects. Many mushrooms, when picked in the wild, contain heavy metals, which can be very toxic, as well as air and water pollutants.
