To enjoy the effect, you don’t have to eat fancy mushrooms either – according to the study any type will be beneficial, but it is worth noting that oyster and shiitake mushrooms contain the highest amounts of the antioxidant. And because ergothioneine is heat stable, you can eat mushrooms raw in a salad or cooked as part of a meal and still enjoy the benefits. More good news?
