Oyster Mushroom Nutrition

Oyster Mushroom Nutrition A very good source of selenium and also providing vitamin D, oyster mushroom nutrition provides a good nutritional mixture.

  • Oyster mushrooms (and mushrooms in general) are an excellent source of niacin (vitamin B3) which helps to stabilise the blood sugar, helps the body to process fats and helps to lower cholesterol levels.

  • Oyster mushroom nutrition is also an excellent source of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) which helps to turn carbohydrates and fats into energy and also plays a part in the health of the adrenal glands.

  • Mushrooms are a very good source of selenium which helps to protect the bodies' cells from free radical damage and also enables the thyroid gland to function properly.

  • Mushrooms are a good source of riboflavin (vitamin B2) which helps to protect the bodies' cells from oxygen damage and also maintain the supply of other B vitamins.

  • Mushrooms also provide vitamin D which helps to keep bones strong and healthy, reduces inflammation, and helps to regulate the growth of the bodies' cells.

  • One cup of mushrooms contains around 28 calories.
