INTRODUCTION Edible mushrooms have a great nutritional value including high protein, essential amino acids, fiber, vitamins (B1, B2, B12, C and D), minerals (Ca, K, Mg, Na, P, Cu, Fe, Mn and Se), low fatty foods and sodium. The objective of this systematic review was to determine the relationship between edible mushroom consumption and overall cardiovascular risk. METHODS We systematically searched Ovid MEDLINE, Embase, Ovid Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, Scopus, and Web of Science… Expand
Edible Mushrooms and Beta-Glucans: Impact on Human Health
The growing knowledge on the mechanism(s) and health benefits of mushrooms is encouraging the development of a potential clinical use of β-glucans, and also to further document their role in preserving health and prevent disease in the context of healthy lifestyles. Expand


Mushroom consumption, biomarkers, and risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes: a prospective cohort study of US women and men.
It is consistently found that mushroom consumption was not associated with plasma biomarkers of lipids, insulin, and inflammation, and risks of CVD and T2D in US adults. Expand
Oyster mushroom reduced blood glucose and cholesterol in diabetic subjects.
It is concluded that mushroom significantly reduced blood glucose, blood pressure, TG and cholesterol of diabetic subjects without any deleterious effect on liver and kidney and the effect of mushroom in a large sample for a longer duration is investigated. Expand

Selenium supplementation decreased serum CRP and increased the GSH-PX level, suggesting a positive effect on reducing oxidative stress and inflammation in CHD, but selenium supplementation is not sufficient to reduce mortality and to improve the lipid status. Expand
Lipid lowering effects of oyster mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus) in humans
Abstract Elevated cholesterol and triacylglycerol levels are known risk factors for cardiovascular diseases. A number of animal studies have indicated that the consumption of oyster mushrooms (Expand
Major Dietary Protein Sources and Risk of Coronary Heart Disease in Women
It is suggested that high red meat intake increases risk of CHD and that CHD risk may be reduced importantly by shifting sources of protein in the US diet. Expand
Vitamin D, Marine n-3 Fatty Acids, and Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease Current Evidence
The results of VITAL are reviewed, relevant mechanistic studies regarding n-3 FAs, vitamin D, and vascular disease are discussed, and recent meta-analyses of the randomized trial evidence on these agents are summarized. Expand
Mushroom and dietary selenium intakes in relation to fasting glucose levels in a free-living Italian adult population: the Moli-sani Project.
The association of mushroom and selenium intakes with FBG suggests that mushroom and Selenium might each independently increase the risk of diabetes, however, prospective studies are now necessary to confirm this hypothesis. Expand
Fish consumption and cardiovascular disease in the physicians' health study: a prospective study.
Data do not support the hypothesis that moderate fish consumption lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease, and the relative risks were similar for omega 3 fatty acid intake and for specific types of fish, and did not change after adjustment. Expand
Fish Consumption, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, and Risk of Cardiovascular Disease.
In this cohort of women without history of cardiovascular disease, intakes of tuna and dark fish, α-linolenic acid, and marine omega-3 fatty acids were not associated with risk of major cardiovascular disease. Expand
Dietary intake of marine n-3 fatty acids, fish intake, and the risk of coronary disease among men.
It is suggested that increasing fish intake from one to two serving per week to five to six servings per week does not substantially reduce the risk of coronary heart disease among men who are initially free of cardiovascular disease. Expand
