Medicinal Mushrooms-Related Blogs

Although mushrooms get good press as a low-calorie, high fiber, low-cholesterol, low-sodium decoration for your pizza, there is much more to the mushroom story than that. Mushrooms have been valued for their culinary and medicinal properties for thousands of years and ancient cultures associated them with immortality for good reason.
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
Prevailing wisdom maintains that mushrooms can not produce Vitamin D3, and it has been a vociferously debated topic of late. But new research promises to upset conventional assumptions in favor of these fungal friends of ours.
Written by Pamela Duff
These varnished-looking mushrooms are gorgeous when fresh since the caps are liver-red to a reddish brown and distinctively glossy.
