Mushroom (Agaricus bisporus) Health Benefits

Mushrooms (common white or brown)

You can't beat the taste of good creamy mushroom soup in the winter to make you feel at home or fresh mushrooms in a salad in the summer. Edible mushrooms have uses beyond jazzing up your favorite recipe, they are known to have magical properties and have an ancient history of use as medicine. 


Weight loss
One of the methods for curing obesity is the inclusion of some substances with the anti-lipase (reducing fat digesting enzymes) activity in the diet and thus reducing the uptake of fat components from food. Some existing dietary supplements that contain plant components can inhibit the lipase action. Mushrooms provide these substances. (1)

Anti-inflammatory
One study of 37 adults concludes that white button mushrooms contain a variety of compounds with potential anti-inflammatory and antioxidant health benefits that can occur with frequent consumption over time in adults predisposed to Type 2 Diabetes. (2)

Immune Modulation
Mushrooms are reported to have antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, cardiovascular-protective, antidiabetic, hepatoprotective, and anticancer properties. It is well-established that mushrooms are adept at immune modulation and affect hematopoietic stem cells, lymphocytes, macrophages, T cells, dendritic cells, and natural killer cells, all important parts of the immune system. (4)

Blood sugar and Cholesterol
One study in rats showed a decrease in Total Cholesterol, LDL, cholesterol, and Triglyceride concentrations and was accompanied by a significant increase in plasma high-density lipoprotein (HDL) concentrations. It was concluded that A common mushrooms had both hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic activity in rats, lowering both blood sugar and cholesterol. (3)
