Eat Shiitake Mushrooms!

Recently it has been discovered that shiitake mushrooms help boost the immune system, lower cholesterol, and prevent thrombosis.  Shiitake mushrooms contain a compound called lentinan which stimulates the immune system which then activates cells and proteins that can inhibit cancerous growths, according to researchers at the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. The Chinese University of Hong Kong reports that shiitake is a good source of antioxidants which may reduce or even eliminate the cancer-causing effects of free radicals. (2011)

Researchers in Sweden, have announced that eritadenine (a substance found in shiitake mushrooms) lowers cholesterol (Lulea University of Technology). Researchers at of Obihiro University of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine (Japan) discovered that rats eating shiitake and maitake exerted cholesterol, thus lowering their levels of cholesterol.

Magnesium Cuts Risk of Cardiovascular Disease

New meta-analysis by the Harvard School of Public Health has determined that increasing levels of magnesium in the body may reduce chances of developing cardiovascular disease.   Clinical hypomagnesemia and experimental restriction of dietary magnesium has been shown toincrease cardiac arrhythmias.  “However, whether or not circulating or dietary magnesium at usual concentrations or intakes influences the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), including fatal ischemic heart disease (IHD), is unclear,” according to Leana C. Del Gobbo et al. Therefore the researchers performed a meta-analysis of clinical literature regarding levels of magnesium in the body and its relation to cardiovascular disease and ischemic heart disease. The studies consisted of  313,041 individuals and 11,995 CVD, 7534 IHD, and 2686 fatal IHD events. Research showed that circulating magnesium  was associated with a 30% lower risk of CVD) and lower risks of IHD and was associated with a 22% lower risk of IHD. More research must be done to find definitive proof, however, so far the research looks promising.
