Surprising mushroom facts!

If you like mushrooms, then you are going to love the health benefits of eating the healing fungus among us.

Vitamin D:  No fruit or vegetable can provide this valuable nutrient.  In fact, mushrooms produce vitamin D when the sun hits them just like the human body.  Mushrooms that are exposed to sufficient sunlight have significantly higher levels of vitamin D and can provide a large share of your daily dose.

Immune system:  Several studies have shown that mushrooms not only help the maturation of immune system cells, but also help increase the production of antiviral proteins that cells release to protect their selves when they are healing.

Metabolism:  Mushrooms are packed with B vitamins which are known to help make available energy from the food you eat.  They also metabolize fats and protein.

Antioxidants:  A study out of Penn State University concluded that portabello and crimini mushrooms packed the same antioxidant punch as red peppers do.  Free radicals, which are a result of oxidation in the body, cause tissue damage and are removed by eating foods rich in antioxidants.

Cruciferous Vegetables Boost Immunity and Fight Cancer


Cruciferous vegetables fight cancer!


 “Green vegetables like - kale, collards, cabbage and broccoli, plus some nongreen vegetables such as cauliflower and turnips, are called “cruciferous vegetables.”

They are named for their flowers, which have four equally spaced petals in the shape of a cross—hence the Latin word crucifer, meaning “cross-bearer.” 

Vegetables contain protective micro-nutrients and phytochemicals, but cruciferous vegetables have a unique chemical composition: they contain sulfur compounds that are to blame for the bitter flavors. When the cell walls are broken by blending / chopping, a chemical reaction occurs that converts their sulfur compounds into isothiocyanates (ITCs) an array of compounds that have been proven to have powerful immune-boosting effects and anticancer activity.”

"Cruciferous vegetables have double the potency as other plant foods! In recent studies, a 20 percent increase in organic food intake generally corresponds to a 20 percent decrease in cancer rates, but a 20 percent increase in cruciferous vegetable intake corresponds to a 40 percent decrease in cancer rates. 28 servings of vegetables per week decreases prostate cancer risk by 33 percent VS. just three servings of cruciferous vegetables per week decreases prostate cancer risk by 41 percent.” - Joel Fuhrman M.D,
