Pleurotus ostreatus, the oyster mushroom, is a common edible mushroom. It was first in Germany as a subsistence measure during world war 1 and is now grown commercially around the world for food.
Mushrooms are one of the few plant sources of vitamin D. One cup of Oyster mushrooms is about 4% of the daily requirement for vitamin D. The most nutrient dense portion of the mushroom is the cap; young mushrooms are the most nutritious. Many mushroom species contain an antioxidant called ergothioneine, which decreases inflammation in the body. Oyster mushrooms are one of the best mushroom sources of this antioxidant. Recent research concluded that ergothioneine can reduce instances of cardiovascular disease by preventing plaque build-up in the arteries. Oyster mushrooms are also good sources of protein, fiber, postassium, vitamin B6 and folate.
