The researchers believe the reason for the reduced prevalence of MCI in those that consumed mushroom weekly could be due to a compound called ergothioneine (ET) - a naturally occurring amino acid found in mushrooms.

I eat a couple of raw mushrooms in my salad every day, probably not enough to make a difference. I forget things all the time!

I love crimini and shitake mushrooms quartered, sauteed and added to pasta sauce or green beans. It's great to know they're as good for your brain as they are delish.

Interesting read. We love mushrooms so this is a good "excuse" to eat more.
