All About Mushrooms!

Mushrooms provide lean proteins since they have no cholesterol or fat and have very low carbohydrates.

Mushrooms are a good source of iron.

Mushrooms contain natural insulin and enzymes which help the breaking down of sugar or starch in food.

Vitamin D which is a relatively rare vitamin to find in vegetables can be found in mushrooms.

Mushrooms contain copper which can regulate and stimulate the absorption of iron from food.
