Shiitake Mushrooms

Looking for a new vegetable to add into your stir-fry?  Consider shiitake mushrooms.  Many people overlook these mushrooms for other varieties and in doing so are making a big mistake.  These mushrooms will provide a very nice taste to your meal and will also offer up a good dose of nutrition.

Let's take a closer look at what they offer.

Boost Your Immune System

The very first big benefit that you'll get from Shiitake mushrooms are that they will really help to boost the immune system's function by providing you with a certain nutrient called a lentinan.  With a stronger immune system present you'll be able to ward off disease and infection better, thus become ill that much less often.

Lowers Cholesterol Regardless Of Fat Intake

Consuming healthy fat varieties is a very important thing to be doing for good heart health but if you want protection regardless of the fat you're consuming, turn to shiitake mushrooms.  A compound called eritadenine found within this mushroom will work to bring down your overall HDL levels regardless of whether or not you're consuming saturated fats.

While this is no excuse to be eating saturated fats in the first place, if you do have a diet that is high in this nutrient, you should definitely be eating shiitake mushrooms to help ward off the effects.

Provides Protection Against Cancer

The third reason to include shiitake mushrooms in your diet plan is because that same lentinan that was responsible for increasing your immune system can also help to prevent the growth of tumor cells.  In doing so it's going to reduce your risk of developing various forms of cancer.

Iron Booster

Finally, shiitake mushrooms will provide a modest dose of iron content as well, so for those who do struggle to reach their recommended daily intake, that’s something to consider as well.  They won't provide all the iron you need, but an 8 oz serving will supply you with about 20% of what you should be taking in.

Combine this with some red meat or other foods rich in iron content and you'll be all set.

So be sure to pick up a few of these mushrooms next time you're in the grocery store and add them into your next dinner meal.
