Magic indeed, mushrooms are seriously substantial little treats.
Along with its smaller crimini and white button cousins, the Portobello Mushroom is gaining worldwide popularity as a “superfood”. Not only are they delicious, they’re also packed with beneficial nutrients.These potent mushrooms offer three important B-complex vitamins. Riboflavin for maintaining healthy red blood cells. Niacin for supple skin and properly functioning digestion. And pantothenic acid, which aids in the release of energy from the fats, proteins, and carbohydrates in the food we eat. They’re also an anti-inflammatory food—containing high levels of beta-glucan compounds that keep immune cells alert.

The immune system is our body’s built-in defense mechanism. A healthy immune system will ensure we don’t contract illnesses caused by bacteria, fungus, or viral infections. Nature offers many ways to help prevent free radicals from affecting our body. Onions are one of the best, natural ways to give that immune system a boost . The strong presence of vitamin C is the reason onions help protect us from many diseases. Onions also contain phytonutrients, such as quercetin, that help fight the free radicals. If that isn’t enough to convince you—sulfur-compounds found in onions are also helpful in fighting the effects of cancer!
