Vitamin D + Mushrooms = good health

If you want to know more about the importance of vitamin D in a balanced, healthy diet you have come to the right place. Of course, if you are a mushroom lover the news is even better, because you can also read about the links between mushrooms and vitamin D.

For many of us, vitamin D is something we get from the sun, and we assume it is just a natural part of life. And it is, but research has shown it to be so much more than that, highlighting a number of benefits beyond strong bones and the prevention of rickets and osteoporosis.

These benefits include a decreased risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension and colorectal cancer. The weight of evidence continues to grow, and many experts are now pointing to evidence that suggests that many of us are lacking in this important vitamin.

So where do mushrooms come into this healthy vitamin D equation? The exciting thing is that mushrooms have vitamin D.

By mimicking nature, growers have been able to produce mushrooms that have consistent levels of vitamin D. This is fantastic news for anyone who loves the fabulous taste of mushrooms, and who also wants to maintain adequate levels of healthy vitamin D.
