Mushrooms have been used as food supplement from times immemorial not only for their flavour, aroma and nutritive values but also for their medicinal properties as evident from ancient literature. In th e present day world they are known for culinary values due to their high-quality proteins, vitamins, fibres and many medicinal properties and accordingly they are called nutraceuticals. Pleurotus as health promoter and environmental restorer is gaining more importance as compared to other… 
Bioactive compounds and medicinal properties of Oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus sp.)
TLDR
The bioactive substances contained in the mycelium and fruiting bodies of Pleurotus species exhibit immunostimulatory,Anti-neoplastic, anti-diabetic, anti"-atherosclerotic,anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-oxidative properties, which have multidirectional positive influence on the human organism.
Nutraceutical Potential and Processing Aspects of Oyster Mushrooms (PleurotusSpecies)
TLDR
The study aimed to grasp a collective information on nutraceutical and processing aspects of highly perishable but nutritious oyster mushroom, which is the most commonly consumed species all over the world due to its superior flavor, taste and nutr pharmaceutical properties.
INCREASED BIOMEDICAL POTENTIAL OF Pleurotus ostreatus THROUGH THE USAGE OF EFFECTIVE SUBSTRATE
TLDR
The yield of Pleurotus ostreatus was seen to be comparable in case of paddy and wheat straw while for sugarcane waste it was almost 50% lower, and correlated with the substrate degrading enzymes, enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants and bioactive compounds.
Evaluation of Nutritional and Medicinal Values of Edible Wild and Cultivated Pleurotus ostreatus
TLDR
The goal of this review is to evaluate the results of the studies about the biochemical composition and medicinal properties of edible wild and cultivated P. ostreatus and to increase its nutritional and nutraceutical values.
THE NUTRITIONAL AND HEALTH PROPERTIES OF AN OYSTER MUSHROOM (Pleurotus ostreatus (Jacq. Fr) P. Kumm.)
An oyster mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus (Jacq.) P. Kumm) is a cultivated species of mushrooms characterizing with unique culinary and medicinal properties. Its’ nutritional value comes from proteins,
Myceliafrom Pleurotus sp. (oyster mushroom):a new wave of antimicrobials, anticancer and antioxidant bio-ingredients
TLDR
The hot-water extract obtained from Pleurotus mycelium, in light of its in vitro antimicrobial, antitumor and antioxidant effects could be considered as a good candidate for developing nutraceuticals and for designing innovative myco-therapeutics and phytocosmetics applications.
Mushroom science in Cuba: towards new opportunities for developing functional foods/nutraceuticals.
TLDR
The synergy exerted by the structural diversity of biomolecules found in Pleurotus crude extracts and powders on immune responses of both immunocompetent and immunodeficient Balb/c mice is examined and demonstrates that not only mushrooms but also their mycelia may be a good candidate for nutraceuticals production.
