A mushroom is the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus, typically produced above ground on soil or on its food source. Vedagiri Herbals produce the powder from button mushrooms which are grown organically. Mushrooms are a good source of B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin D, fibre, antioxidants and important minerals like potassium which helps to balance minerals and control blood pressure. They help to strengthen the immune system as well. Mushrooms provide ergothioneine, an amino acid, that help protect the body's cells. Mushrooms are low in calories, fat-free, cholesterol-free and very low in sodium, yet they provide several nutrients.
