What's up Organic Gang?
Mushrooms are known for their great taste and incredible health benefits. Packed with essential vitamins and minerals, they are an excellent option for your diet.
With the aim of delving deeper into this little-known food, we are preparing a series of blogs that we are going to publish little by little.
[MUSHROOM FACTS #02]: They boost the immune system
Mushrooms are a great source of beta-glucan, a type of fiber that has been shown to boost the immune system. Beta-glucan activates parts of your immune system, including immune cells called natural killer cells and macrophages, and by doing so it increases your body’s ability to fight infection and possibly even stop the growth or progression of tumours.
Mushrooms have also been found to have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce pain, stiffness, and swelling.
As stated before, mushrooms are also high in selenium, a mineral that has been found to enhance the immune system and protect against infections, boosting your immunity against colds and the flu.
Mushrooms are one of the best plant-based foods you can add to your diet.
They're tasty, have an amazing texture, are low in carbs, and provide an incredible list of benefits. This is one of the main reasons why we have chosen mushrooms as the main ingredient of our Organic Vegan Jerky.
Vegetable alternatives have to be clean and healthy. Ultra-processed fake meats made with loads of chemicals and unhealthy inflammatory ingredients are not a sustainable option in anyone's diet.
We use 100% local products. La Rioja is one of the most important mushroom-producing areas in Europe. Our organic mushroom suppliers are only 50km from our facilities.
