Cooked Mushrooms

Tom: I have 8 varieties of muchrooms in my tops bars and powers, for good reason!

Mushrooms have remarkably high amounts of two potential antiaging antioxidants. In a six-year study, researchers from the National University of Singapore found that seniors who ate just two portions of cooked mushrooms a week were half as likely (than those who ate mushrooms less than once a week) to have mild cognitive impairment (MCI). The association was independent of age, gender, education, cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption, hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, physical activities, and social activities.
