Anti-Ageing? Bloom with a mushroom!

July 2015

 

Portabella and white button mushrooms rank with carrots, green beans, red peppers and broccoli as good sources of anti-ageing antioxidants, according to Penn State University. And as mushrooms are readily available on supermarket shelves and affordable, eating them may just be a better long term anti-ageing investment than those expensive creams!


In the 2005 study (http://bit.ly/1vlKf8W), researchers found that eating ordinary Portabella mushrooms (the big browns) or white button mushrooms regularly, could prevent cancer and cardiovascular diseases, as well as have significant anti-aging effect. N. Joy Dubost with Robert Beelman, professor of food science, identified mushrooms as an “abundant source of the anti-oxidant ergothionine”, a powerful anti-aging antioxidant. The Penn State study also showed that the anti-oxidant effect of mushrooms is due primarily to the presence of polyphenols.

Free radicals are one of the main causes for aging because they cause cell damage. Several types of antioxidants are effective to neutralize them. Ergothioneine is one of the best to fight free radicals that is why it is an important antioxidant for anti-aging.

So adding mushrooms to your salads or meat dishes may just be the quickest way to that younger you!
