Mushroom, Crimini per Pint
Although not famous medicinal mushrooms like their reishi or maitake cousins, cremini do appear to be beneficial to the body.
There's evidence that Agaricus bisporus inhibits aromatase, an enzyme that contributes to estrogen production. By controlling estrogen levels, the risk of breast cancer is lowered.
Beyond medicinal, the main uses for these mushrooms are culinary. These are famous edibles, and good for you as well. They're known to contain:
- Vitamin D
- B Vitamins
- Helpful antioxidants like selenium
- Linoleic acid (believed to be responsible for controlling estrogen levels)
These health benefits, along with great taste, make cremini mushrooms a welcome addition to many meals. Use them with eggs, meats, or vegetable dishes. They're also excellent in soups, gravies, and stir-fries.
