Asian mushrooms have been picked and eaten fresh, or dried and powdered for thousands of years for use in traditional Chinese medicine. Now a new study is adding to their mystique—and their street cred.
Eating one 4-oz. serving of dried, reconstituted shiitake mushrooms a day for four weeks can boost your immune system by measurably increasing killer T cells and antibody levels—both badass assassins for the immune system, the University of Florida reports.
Pick up dried shiitakes at a natural market and add them while cooking vegetable soup, or soak them for up to eight hours, rinse, and enjoy them with your favorite proteins and veggies.
