Hopefully, in the days to come, the world will be less interested in hoarding toilet paper and more focused on creating a healthier lifestyle that can withstand the viruses that plague us. One often overlooked source of important vitamins and minerals is the mushroom.
Mushrooms have the same quantity of B-12 as meat. They contain linoleic acid, one of the two essential fatty acids that humans must get through their diet. They are a source of ergothioneine which has a powerful antioxidant. Mushrooms support your body’s healthy immune and inflammatory responses by improving the formation of the adaptive immunity system which eliminates or prevents the growth of pathogens. They also enhance the functionality of immune cells.
