Why mushrooms would be always winning the race of immunity booster applications?

Human immune system is one of the important regulatory and defensive systems of human body against different types of pathogens, diseases or simply antigen. In the era of corona virus pandemic, people started to understand the nutritional importance of food and this is stimulating the market of immune booster products.

Immune booster products are simply the products which going to help us for diseases or infections such as COVID-19. Mushrooms are only one super food of the planet that can save us against thousands of infections or diseases don’t matter if they are bacterial, viral, fungal or anything. Mushrooms can deal with lot of diseases the list can be much longer if you go through previous research publications or experts.

What is the major problems in mushroom cultivation?

Problems and solutions in the cultivation of the mushroom including: a) Mycelium fails to form Improper initiation strategy.  Solutions : consult parameter of growth. Alter moisture, temperature, light, carbon dioxide, etc.  Note : If the substrate is too moist, decrease moisture b) Chlorinated or contaminated water.  Solutions :  Use activated charcoal water filters to eliminate chemical contaminants or any other ways of simple or appropriate technology. c) Bad substrate.  Solutions : Check substrate. Spread the substrate and remix the substrate, package again, make sure all raw materials are good and fresh.   Note : It is necessary to pasteurize immediately after bagging otherwise fermentation gas will slow down the rate of growth of mycelium or stop mycelium growth. d) Bad pasteurization.  Solutions : Check method of pasteurization. Release all air and make sure there is continuous steam before starting pasteurization for a period of 3h. e) The substrate in the bag is too hot when i

Oyster mushroom vs button mushroom nutrition | Nutritional comparison between oyster and button mushrooms

Oyster mushrooms are beloved the world over for their delicate texture and mild, savory flavor.  Oyster mushrooms are more expensive than white button mushrooms but less so than rarer mushrooms like morels, and take little prep since they can be used whole or chopped.                                Oyster: “These are low in calories and rich in fiber, protein, selenium [which may help prevent cancer], niacin [aka, vitamin B3] and riboflavin [aka, vitamin B2].Oyster mushrooms also contain an active compound called benzaldehyde, which has potent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Additionally, research shows oyster mushrooms may significantly reduce blood glucose levels. They have also been shown to help lower cholesterol levels.”    White Button: White button mushrooms represent 90 percent of the total mushrooms consumed. “They’re a good source of potassium, B vitamins, calcium, phosphorus [which supports bone and teeth health] and iron. They also contain selenium, a trace
