Luv Mushrooms? Put Them In The Sun To Get Your Daily Dose Of Vitamin D!!!

Monday, December 17, 2018

Did you know??

To boost your Vitamin D intake from food, set 3 mushrooms by a window for about an hour before cooking them - they'll absorb enough natural Vitamin D from the sun to cover a full day’s recommended daily allowance!

That's right, mushrooms exposed to the sun can provide as much vitamin D as a health supplement, a study has found.

- Researchers recommend people take mushrooms out of their wrapping and leave them outside for half an hour before eating. Placing them in the window sill in full sun works as well.

- Much like our skin, mushrooms transform ultraviolet light from the sun into the vitamin and continue to do so even after they have been harvested.

- Cooking will not damage the vitamin levels and is perfectly stable with heat. If anything, it makes it far easier to absorb the nutrient.'

- Vitamin D is essential for the immune system, strong healthy bones and teeth and the absorption of calcium.
