Why include mushrooms in your diet?

Mushrooms are more than just a superfood. Humans are more closely related to fungi than we are to any other kingdom, and because of our body's innate ability to recognize the structural compounds from mushrooms, our body responds to them with activation and increased effectiveness. Currently, there are over 650 different edible mushrooms (mostly in the form of extracts) today, all showing the ability to influence the immune response. Each type of mushroom has its own variety of medicinal compounds shown useful in preventing and treating a variety of health conditions. Click here for a full introduction to medicinal mushrooms.
