Mushrooms For Weight Loss: Nature's Secret Strategy In A Small Package

What many foods, including protein, can be used in facial treatments, mixed with tea, dispersed in pasta, mixed into soft drinks, consumed alone, and used as medicine? You think: MUSHROOM. Yes, these versatile and beautiful living things!

It is very unusual to think that mushrooms, members of the Fungi Kingdom, can be very tasty, interesting, unique in their scent, have 14 thousand species with a few thousand that are edible, very rich in nutrients and have many medicinal properties.


The Medical Institute (IoM) is part of the National Academy of Sciences, which is not a government, tasked with setting the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) that we all use as a measure of truth, for nutritional value, although we rarely ask what criteria are tested and who . According to one of the authors of this measurement, Professor Robert Reynolds, formerly of the University of Chicago, this system has many drawbacks as little money has been allocated to study this information.

Roberts says only half of us fall into the "average" category for Recommended Daily Allowance, and we need to eliminate 3% of the healthiest people to boot. The size does not apply if we are sick, if we overweight, if we are over 60, if we are stressed, if we take medicine, if we smoke, if we eat refined and processed, unhealthy foods that are less than 2,000 calories a day.

It made me wonder how much it would cost to streamline the RDA program using existing research data with values ​​for everyone on the system. Large-scale studies are expensive when done from the beginning, so using secondary data will reduce costs.

Daily allowances are recommended when using rare and outdated data, in many cases. But it's still useful.

The nutritional information we see about packing in the United States is right for healthy people who eat well, don't smoke, don't overweight and under stress. And these values, on their own, increased by about 25% as a buffer for nutrition lost in cooking.


The following nutrients make white mushrooms valuable and unique. The numbers in parentheses represent the percentage of daily needs in the average person.

B Vitamins, in addition to all other benefits, are being considered to reduce ADHD and slow down Alzheimer's.

Thiamin (e), B1, helps metabolize sugars and amino acids. (4%)

Riboflavin, B2 metabolizes carbohydrates into energy. (17%)

Niacin, B3, promotes high density lipid (HDL) levels, good cholesterol, in the blood. (13%)

Pantothenic acid, B5, converts carbohydrates and fats into usable energy and ensures healthy fat in the cell. (10%)

Pyridoxine, B6, balances sodium (Na) and potassium (K). (4%)

Folic acid, B9, is required for DNA synthesis and repair and for cell growth. (3%)


Choline helps in cell membrane synthesis.

Betaine controls the movement of fluid across the cell membrane (osmosis), aiding in the work of membranes and neurotransmitters acetylcholine.

Omega-6 fatty acids are one of the 2 essential fatty acids required for cellular processes and must be balanced with Omega-3 fatty acids to maintain inflammation and cell function. Both are important and should be eaten. So get walnuts and hemp seeds to balance with Omega-3.

Copper aids in iron uptake and metabolism of cells. It also protects our cardiovascular system. (11%)

Phosphorus is part of the structure of living molecules (DNA, RNA). (6%)

Potassium helps the body process sodium. It is also important to prevent muscles from contracting. You've heard someone suggest that you go eat some dried or rotten apricots if you have leg cramps, right? They are high in potassium. (6%)

Selenium helps with cell function.

Vitamin D, which is produced by converting sterols, ergosterol, into Vitamin D2, with ultraviolet under the sun. (This is similar to how we get vitamin D from the sun, except we use 7-hydrocholesterol and synthesize Vitamin D3 (3%, which may be higher if the mushrooms are exposed to ultraviolet light)

Mushrooms also contain 2% RDA for Vitamin C, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese and Zinc.

Mushrooms are about 15 calories per cup, with 2 grams of protein and 2 grams of carbohydrates, with only 1 count since 1 of those grams is a non-digestible fiber that helps with digestion and does not turn to glucose before it reaches the colon.


1) Research from the Beckman Research Institute, Duarte, California, found that white mushrooms contain linoleic acid (CLA) that can reduce the risk of high estrogen levels such as breast cancer. Other studies at the same institution show that white mushrooms have a similar effect on prostate cancer.

2) Eating white mushrooms seems to prevent the production of inflammatory molecules, good for reducing many types of inflammation that are basically any kind of immune compromise or disease.

3) Mushrooms, in general, are known for their anti-oxidant properties. L-ergothioneine, one of the anti-oxidants found in white mushrooms can be found in shiitake mushrooms for 5 X more. So, different species are known to have different health benefits.

4) Mushrooms have a low glycemic load (2), which means that they do not cause sugar levels to change rapidly. Their fatty substances are, in part, responsible for this.

5) Inflammatory factor is low (-4) indicating that they will not contribute to the development of the body. Mushrooms are also known for reducing them.

6) Mushrooms are known to improve the immune system and cognitive function.

7) The last and most important benefit to the Community is that THEY MAKE A LOT OF CHILDREN AND POWER as we consume very little calories and a lot of nutritional value.


Many of us agree that raw foods need higher nutrients when raw. With mushrooms, according to a study cited in Scientific American by Sushma Subramanian, some vegetables, including mushrooms, when boiled or cooked for a short time, increase antioxidants and other properties when cell membranes break down and release nutrients. Check out the recipe below, the way I've been eating mushrooms for years. And the stems work somehow, even if they don't taste enough cream. Full of nutrition.


Mushrooms from the species Agaricus Bisporus, a species of which white mushrooms and many others we eat belong to, revealing the presence of a small number of derivatives of the compounds hydrazine, agaratin and gyromitrin. These substances are known to be carcinogens when delivered to mice at very high doses for a short period of time. There has never been a case that cancer has been caused by eating mushrooms.

Most researchers recommend consideration of this fact and show that cooking mushrooms reduces toxin content.

Confirm that you do not have any allergies or headaches from eating some mushrooms before you eat a larger portion. Sometimes, people may have a bad reaction to eating it. I have a slight headache from adding mushroom supplements once. It's light but lasts a few days.

It is worth noting that, according to Joshua Rosenthal's nutrition program, mushrooms are in the top 15 foods with pesticide residues, though I don't know how they got this number. It is best to eat organic foods which means they are not sprayed.

Take action

1) Take some time to read more about mushrooms. They are very interesting.

2) Add small mushroom recipes to your daily diet several times this week, carefully as advised. Watch how mushrooms meet you. Or just eat one mushroom a day.

3) Make a special mushroom recipe that suits you. Consider not adding sugar, fat or salt. Give it to a friend or schoolmate.


There are many benefits to mushrooms. They can be used in many ways: as antioxidants, antivirals, anti-migraine drugs, for anti-cancer treatment, as anti-psychotic, for daily nutrition, better memory and beauty care.

The richness of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and good health features make them super foods. After seeing what you're doing, consider telling everyone you add to your day.
