Dried mushroom, organically grown

per half oz

Oyster mushroom contains beta-glucans (fiber from the cell walls) like other mushrooms, which have glucose modulating effects, so it balances blood sugar levels, which is imperative for managing & preventing very common Western killers, diabetes & heart disease. The anti-hyperglycemic action mushrooms have include inhibiting glucose absorption, protecting beta-cell (insulin-producing cells) damage, increasing insulin release, & boosting antioxidant defense.


Oyster mushrooms contain these beta-glucans, and they have additional medicinal use as well, including a toning action on the veins and a relaxing effect on the tendons. They’re excellent nutritional sources for some B vitamins, protein, iron, phosphorous, magnesium, zinc, copper, & fiber.
