According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is medicinal values associated with mushrooms. Technically, mushrooms are not plants. They belong to the fungi kingdom but are classified as vegetables. They are high in antioxidants and contain selenium, which is a mineral that is not present in most vegetables. This mineral plays a vital role in liver enzyme function and aids in combating cancer by detoxifying cancer-triggering compounds in the body. It also decreases tumor growth and prevents inflammation. Besides selenium, mushrooms also contain Vitamin C, fiber, and potassium that contribute to cardiovascular health. Mushrooms that are high in potassium and low in sodium decrease the chances of cardiovascular diseases and high blood pressure.
