Studies on mice have identified anti-inflammatory properties of oyster mushrooms. This suggests that they could be a useful inclusion as part of a diet focused on reducing inflammation. Conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and muscular pain are usually characteristic of misdirected inflammation and could all potentially benefit from a dietary regime that’s high in anti-inflammatory foods such as oyster mushrooms.
May aid in the lowering of cholesterol
Rats have also provided some insight into the potential for oyster mushrooms to help with lowering cholesterol. In one study, six week old rats with elevated cholesterol were supplemented with king oyster mushrooms. Their total cholesterol, triglycerides, “bad” cholesterol, total lipids and body weight all reduced with the intervention. These results offer promise for king oyster mushrooms as a cholestol lowering substance to be used in the human diet.
Other potential health benefits of king oyster mushrooms
Animal studies have suggested that oyster mushrooms have a notable level of antioxidants and could therefore help to keep body cells healthy. They may also have the potential to “boost” the immune system and help ward off sickness. Anti-cancer properties are also being uncovered. A study investigating the effects of various types of mushrooms on the growth of breast and colon cancer cells highlighted favorable results with oyster mushrooms. When compared with the effects of portbella, enoki and shitake varieties, oyster mushrooms came out on top. They suppressed the growth of both breast and colon cancer cells more notably than the other varieties of mushrooms.
