Mushrooms are very high in Vitamin D, iron, and antioxidants such as selenium, which is crucial in cognitive function and fertility in both men and women. Additionally, they contain key nutrients like blood-pressure balancing potassium, red-blood cell improving riboflavin, and niacin, which aids in clear skin and digestive and nervous system functioning. The diverse nutrients of mushrooms also work to improve bone health, lower cholesterol levels, and improve our immune systems so that we don't get sick.
Not only are mushrooms healthy, but they are filling! According to mushroominfo.com, "Preliminary research suggests increasing intake of low-energy-density foods (meaning few calories given the volume of food), specifically mushrooms, in place of high-energy-density foods, like lean ground beef, can be an effective method for reducing daily energy and fat intake while still feeling full and satiated after the meal."
