Mushrooms are an earthy, nutrient-dense food that grows right from the soil we live on. Mushrooms are also great in protecting the body because they contain germanium– an important mineral that helps us to use oxygen and defend ourselves from free radicals. There is an array of different types of mushrooms that offer their own benefits and uses.
