Health Benefits of Oita Japanese Mushrooms
Japanese mushrooms are a low-calorie, high-fiber source of carbohydrates that are packed full of vital nutrients. They are rich in B vitamins, vitamin D, zinc, copper, and selenium.
These mushrooms have one of the highest amounts of natural copper, a mineral that supports healthy blood vessels, bones, and immune support. In fact, 1/2 cup of mushrooms gives you 72 percent of your daily recommended intake (DRI) of this mineral. The mushrooms are also a rich source of selenium, providing 33 percent of your DRI.
The mushrooms also contain:
• A potent level of polysaccharide – for a healthy immune system.
• Beta-glucan lentinan – to inhibit the growth of cancer cells
• Essential amino acids – to provide vital nutrients for healthy cell functions.
• Eritadine – to help lower cholesterol by blocking its absorption by the bloodstream
