There are 4 of the more exotic varieties that are becoming increasingly available on supermarket shelves.
Shiitake: Studies have shown that these flavorful and readily available mushrooms have anti-tumor, cholesterol-lowering, and anti-viral properties. Either fresh or dried is fine.
Enoki: Slender, mild-flavored mushrooms appear to have significant anti-cancer and immune-enhancing effect.
Maitake: Also known as ‘hen of the woods,’ these mushrooms may have anti-cancer, antiviral, and immune-enhancing properties. They may also reduce blood pressure and blood sugar.
Oyster: Less expensive and less flavourful than shiitakes, these mushrooms may also provide some protection against cancer. #mushrooms #antiviral #antibacterial #immunebooster
