Cognitive Impairment Risk May Be Reduced by Consuming Mushrooms

Updated: May 15, 2019

Sharing an article from Medscape - Interesting read...

Older adults who consume more than two standard portions of mushrooms per week may have as much as a 50% reduced odds of developing mild cognitive impairment (MCI).

"Emerging evidence has suggested that mushrooms may have neuroprotective properties," the authors write.

However, to date only two epidemiological studies have examined cognitive benefits of mushroom consumption in community-living elderly people.

Despite the "promising" findings of these studies, it "remains unknown if mushroom consumption is associated with reduced odds of having MCI," they note.
