Mushrooms Brown 250 g - Brown mushrooms are part of the Kingdom Fungi and replicate by producing spores. Aside from being very low in calories, they offer multiple health-promoting effects, such as improved heart health and cancer-fighting properties.
Like most mushrooms, brown mushrooms are low in calories but pack plenty of nutrients. Due to their exposure to UV rays or sunlight, mushrooms are a natural, non-animal source of vitamin D2 that’s capable of increasing blood levels of this vitamin as effectively as a supplement — and brown mushrooms are no exception. Your body turns vitamin D2 into the active form of vitamin D, which it needs to absorb calcium and keep your bones healthy.
