Mushrooms come in all shapes and sizes from all kinds of backgrounds, ranging from the humble to the exotic. But the edible varieties are all nutritional and flavorful powerhouses, which boost the healthy qualities of any dish to help improve the management of your PCOS symptoms.
Maitake mushrooms, for example, can lower blood sugar levels, add vitamin D to the diet and enhance the immune system, while portobello is a prime source of vital potassium.
Oyster mushrooms may lower LDL “bad” cholesterol by inhibiting an enzyme that’s crucial to cholesterol synthesis. And the ordinary white button mushroom contains more antioxidants than the more expensive shiitake variety.
Tip: clean edible mushrooms as you would any other vegetable, just before using. If stored wet, moisture speeds up the process of mushrooms becoming spoiled.
