Subject: Anthocyanins from grape skins could potentially be used a colorant





Commercial food industries have long used artificial colors to enhance the look of their products. With consumers now trending toward wanting more natural ingredients in their food and beverages, natural colors attained from plants is an easy solution. For example, the anthocyanins, which give grape skins their various colors, can be used to make colas several different colors. They also have a beneficial health component, as they contain anti oxidants that are know to aid in several areas of health and nutritional balance.

Key Takeaways:

  • Some of the problems food manufacturers cause is using synthetic food to provide color when they make beverages and producing a lot of environmental wastes.
  • Researchers in Brazil wanted to help the environment so they researched on ways to use residues of food processing as colorants in drinks.
  • When they compared their research on grape fruit and kefir, they found that anthocyanins from grape fruit when applied to kefir was sustainable and good for the health.

"Anthocyanins from grape skins can be used as a safe and natural food colorant, according to a study published in the Journal of Food Processing and Preservation."

Subject: The Differences Between Hemp Seed Oil and Hemp CBD Oil





With the increasing popularity of legalizing marijuana and CBD, along with many sates’ hopes of doing so, it will be imperative for the general public to understand the differences between Hemp Seed Oil and CBD oil. Becky Garrison has compiled a short recap on why consumers need to pay attention to the letters CBD when shopping. Hemp as a general term is more focused on skin care routines, vitamin supplementation and household products, CBD would help more with medical ailments such as pain and anxiety.

Key Takeaways:

  • Hemp seed oil is pressed from the hemp plant's seeds, much like sunflower oil.
  • If you want high quality CBD, it is extracted from the flowers of female-only hemp plants.
  • Hemp seeds do have a number of nutritional benefits, such as omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and vitamins A and E.

"Due to this confusion in which "hemp seed oil" is often mistakenly called "hemp oil," consumers should check the label to ensure they are purchasing the correct product for their needs. If you're looking for CBD, hemp seed oil isn't what you want; and if you're looking for hemp-based products for their nutritional content, then you may be disappointed in a hemp oil CBD product."

Subject: Chitosan: A more environmentally friendly food packaging materialthan plastic





Itsaso Leceta, an academic researcher from the University of Basque Country has developed a biodegradable polymer, hoping to change packaging standards. Chitosan, made from crustacean chitins, prevents fungi and bacteria from infecting whole foods. It does not, however, block gas, water, or vapor. On the plus side, this new environmentally conscious food packaging is completely biodegradable, even edible. Everyone can make a difference, and consumers can start by choosing alternative means in their lives, like Chitosan.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although fruit is often coated in plastic films to protect it from contaminants, these plastics pollute the sea, and their productions involves the use of hazardous chemicals.
  • Chitosan is produced by processing the material that makes up crustaceans’ exoskeletons, and it has antimicrobial properties that make it a good potential coating for fruit and vegetables.
  • You can help reduce the impact of packaging materials on the environment by bringing your own bag when you buy produce, and by buying from local farmers.

"It is a biodegradable, biocompatible (not harmful to living tissue) polymer that can be used to wrap vegetables and fruits. Its purpose is to prevent bacteria and fungi from infecting whole foods, and prolonging their shelf life."

Although chia and flax seeds both have distinct benefits that provide consumers with health advantages, each of these seedling varieties excel in different areas. For instance, if you are experiencing some constipation, the high amounts of fiber located within chia seeds may help relieve your discomfort. When it comes to other ailments such as Crohn's Disease, flax seeds may help due to their significant amount of selenium. Both chia seeds and flax seeds have over 4 grams of protein per serving, making them a go-to treat for body builders.

Key Takeaways:

  • The author states that chia seeds and flax seeds are two seeds which have proven versatility, nutrient profile and wealth of health benefits.
  • When one is undecided about which is better between flax seeds and chia seeds, the author recommends both although per serving chia seeds are better.
  • Some advantages of chia seeds is that they are easy to digest, can be consumed either whole or ground, and include several micronutrients.

"Chia seeds and flax seeds nutrition both include a good amount of fiber and protein. They both also have an extensive nutrient profile and provide a type of omega-3 fatty acid called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)."

Subject: Should You Try CBD for Your Pet?





CBD, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid compound, is now legal for use in humans in 47 states, but neither science nor the law has dealt extensively with CBD use for veterinary purposes. Only California explicitly allows vets to talk to clients about CBD as a veterinary medicine, and hard research on its effects in animals remains sparse. Despite this, pet owners across the country have been experimenting with the use of CBD to address problems like anxiety, pain, arthritis and other conditions in their four-legged friends.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although still banned by the federal government, CBD is not psychoactive, and can be legally used in 47 states.
  • Most state-level CBD laws do not cover veterinary use, and only in California are vets explicitly allowed to discuss it.
  • While anecdotal reports suggest CBD may have a variety of applications in treating pain and anxiety in pets, research is very scarce.

"But recently, Powers says he has found a way to control his dog’s noise anxiety: cannabidiol—aka CBD, a compound that can be extracted from cannabis, which includes marijuana and hemp."

Pain is of course a fact of life, as is the reasonable pursuit to end, or at least mitigate it. But, it's that ending of pain that can prove problematic. Last year Consumer Reports revealed that as many as 4 million plus U.S. citizens bought pharmaceutical interventions of some type in an attempt to deal with a pain. Unfortunately, most pharmaceutical interventions are not without side effects, some of them very serious. Moreover, although these types of interventions can help sufferers cope with symptoms, they can also mask other important symptoms. In general, pharmaceutical pain relievers block receptors that would allow the brain to acknowledge pain. They can also cause a mild euphoria. The most potent type of pharmaceutical pain killers, opioids are also highly addictive. Millions of people abuse prescription drugs and hundreds of thousands die due to overdose every year. There are other options. Alternative forms of holistic treatment have been around for thousands of years, long before many of today's modern interventions. Today, science is discovering that many of them have a right to be considered potent medicine in their own right. Two holistic alternatives to pharmaceutical pain relievers are turmeric and cayenne. Curmerin, the inflammation-fighting component of turmeric, has been proven to fight inflammation-caused pain as well as Ibuprofen. In the same way, the capsaicinoids, which are inherent in cayenne, also work to alleviate inflammation, thereby alleviating pain. Another holistic remedy, Epsom salts, also alleviates pain when users soak in it.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although drugs can alleviate symptoms, they also have a tendency to mask other vital symptoms.
  • During 2017, it's estimated by Consumer Reports that drug-seeking U.S. citizens filled a whopping 4.5 million prescriptions.
  • Curcumin, a component of the spice turmeric, inhibits pain due to inflammation in a way that makes it on par with the relief users would normally gain from Ibuprofen.

"Big Pharma seems to be working very hard at creating customers, rather than cures. When you take a drug, it often leads to more problems, and ultimately, more drugs."

Some people are able to deal with it better than others. Turmeric is a new substance that people are saying is really good to help battle against inflammation. It is something that not many people know too much about but it is effective.

Key Takeaways:

  • Some people do not believe in the use of turmeric when trying to treat some of their pain.
  • If you have worries about something that you are feeling, go ahead and get it looked at.

Dry scalp may sound like a ho-hum problem, but it can quickly become an irritating and all-consuming affair should the dryness lead to intense itch and dead skin amassing on the scalp, before descending as mortifying flakes. Though there are chemical-laden options available to consumers at pharmacies and groceries, it behooves the natural-minded consumer to consider some options that use organic ingredients. Aloe vera gel is one specific that can be used as a stand-alone on the scalp. Simply apply and leave on for an hour, repeating a couple times a week. A slightly more complicated approach incorporates olive oil, dressed up with a few drops of lavender oil. The combination deeply nourishes the scalp and leaves a light fragrance.

Key Takeaways:

  • To moisturize a dry scalp, thereby alleviating itchiness and embarrassing flakes, try a mixture of olive oil and several drops of lavender essential oil.
  • Leave the mixture in place, on your scalp for an hour for best results and repeat the process two times a week.
  • Aloe vera gel, which can also be applied topically, makes another good alternative treatment to combat dry scalp itch and dandruff.

"Dryness is among the most common skin issues that affect the scalp – one which, if left unaddressed, can easily become an annoying problem."

CV Sciences, Inc. Announces Landmark Publication on the Toxicology and Safety Assessment of ...

The scientific study of the analysis of CBD oil got a major push recently. It's been almost 40 years since the last thorough toxicological safety assessment was run on a CBD oil. However, recently CV sciences had AIBMR Life Sciences Inc. perform a complete array of toxicological studies on Plus CBD oil, the company's consumer-lauded hemp cannabidiol oil. The study attested to the safety of oral consumption of the product.

The study conclusions, which have been shared in a peer-reviewed journal, attest to the fact that the oil was discovered to be non-clastogenic, non-mutagenic and non-genotoxic. A spokesperson for CV Sciences noted that the company was "thrilled" and would encourage all CBD companies to allow such studies to be conducted for their own base materials.

Key Takeaways:

  • CV Sciences Inc hired AIBMR Lifesciences Inc. to perform a full toxicological screening of CV's consumer-lauded CBD oil, specifically an extract from the base raw materials comprising it.
  • A peer-reviewed journal has published the findings, which indicate that the extract tested is non-mutagenic, non-clastogenic and non-genotoxic.
  • A spokesperson for CV Sciences indicated that the company was "thrilled" and also urged other CBD companies to have their base materials tested too.

"The toxicological assessment is the first known published data of its kind since the 1980 Rosenkrantz et al.’s publication with respect to toxicology data on CBD, Cannabichromene and hashish oil."

CBD Oil Is the 'Wellness Vitamin' Everyone Can Benefit From, Experts Say

Unlike its cousin marijuana, which is psychoactive in nature, the hemp plant has very minute amounts of the intoxicant found in marijuana. It's therefore legal to consume and sell in all of the fifty states, as long as the sellers can show their product has less than .03% of THC, the intoxicating element in marijuana. CBD oil, or cannabidiol, which is a hemp extract, is not just legal it's sexy and offered to eager consumers in pills, powders, liquids, even smoothies. CBD popularity undoubtedly arises from the fact that the hemp variant has many of the calming feel-good effects of the marijuana variant, but without the intoxicant. Besides its mood-elevating and tranquilizing effects, CBD also has been shown to help pain-sufferers and lower inflammation. Many nutrition gurus are advocating use of the oil as a daily wellness regiment. Meanwhile, product uses multiply in everything from salad dressing to chocolate.

Key Takeaways:

  • A company, Juice Generation, adds CBD to its salad dressing because it gives salads a more evolved feel and makes it tastier.
  • The body has an inborn endocannabinoid system that helps us to reap the benefits from cannabis.
  • Celebrities are not left out in using CBD. Olivia Wilde, an actress, states that instead of using painkillers for her pains, she uses a body lotion with CBD.

"Currently, CBD is being added to everything from smoothie powders, coffee, tinctures, gummies and tablets to salad dressing. Despite its lack of psychoactive components, which is typically credited for cannabis’ feel-good benefits, when taken internally, CBD has a similar effect — just without the high."

Regular consumption of nuts may improve male fertility

A new study has discovered that men that incorporate nuts into their diet can boost their male fertility. The study, which followed nearly 120 young men, found that those in the study group that regularly ate nuts that included walnuts, almonds, and hazelnuts experienced enhanced mobility and vitality as well as higher sperm counts. At the same time, the nut consumers were found to have lower levels of sperm DNA fragmentation, which can lead to infertility. More studies will be needed to make a solid connection between nuts and male fertility.

Key Takeaways:

  • Infertility is often due to sperm DNA fragmentation which is shown to be significantly helped by the consumption of nuts.
  • During this particular study, the participants consisted of 119 healthy men who followed a generally Americanized diet.
  • Human nutrition specialist Dr. Albert Salas-Huetos is who conducted this study regarding nuts and their association to fertility levels.

"The study participants who consistently consumed nuts showed notable improvements in the vitality, mobility, morphology, and the number of their sperm – factors that are all associated with male fertility."

Boysenberries found to improve cholesterol, help prevent heart disease

Researchers from Japan have discovered that eating boysenberries can help in the prevention of heart disease and even lower one's cholesterol. In fact, boysenberries contain even more polyphenols than raspberries do. These nutrients help stave off degenerative conditions, such as heart disease. They also supply consumers with a healthy amount of antioxidants and that reduces several chronic conditions, like atherosclerosis. In addition, boysenberries help with the reduction of cholesterol excretion, especially in a person's small intestine.

Key Takeaways:

  • Boysenberries contain polyphenols that prevent degenerative diseases like heart disease and antioxidants that prevent atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular diseases.
  • Boysenberries can prevent atherosclerosis through influencing cholesterol metabolism by promoting excretion of cholesterol in the intestine.
  • Although boysenberries were first grown and cultivated in America, New Zealand has become the biggest producer and exporter of the fruit.

"Eating delicious boysenberries can improve cholesterol and prevent heart disease, reported a Japanese study."

Fiber is one of those things we rarely we get enough of. Often we skip the whole grain food and go right to the processed. On the whole, we are eating 16 grams of fiber per day, but should be eating around 25 grams. Fiber is overall helpful in your diet. Not only does it help you feel full, but it has benefits to heart health and colon health. It can also help cut cholesterol by binding to it before passing out of the body.

Key Takeaways:

Subject: Cannabinoid-Pharmaceutical Interactions: What You Need to Know





With the regulatory environment shifting seemingly by the day across much of the U.S., many consumers are getting their first opportunities to consider the benefits of cannabinoids as a means of treating what ails them. However, like any medicines, there are interactions with other pharmaceuticals that need to be taken into consideration. Specifically, they can inhibit the reception and mechanisms of action of many common prescription drugs, including common opiate painkillers. In order to check side effects, it's best to keep a close eye on the literature and carefully research any possible interactions.

Key Takeaways:

  • Cytochrome P450 is the key to metabolizing both these drugs and what interacts in our body with it.
  • Cannabinoids may be the key to opiod addiction due to their poor ability for long term dependence and physical addiction
  • You will need to monitor what you take since other drugs can interact poorly with cannabinoids.

"Cannabis has demonstrated efficacy in treating pain, and some phytocannabinoids have been suggested for various metabolic conditions."

Subject: Simpler CBD Legalization Bill Clears House Committee





Cannabidiol, or cbd, was recently passed as a legal substance by the Indiana House of Representatives. The bill does have a curious ride that the cbd must contain less than 3% thc, or the active ingredient in marijuana to be legal. There may still be hurdles as it heads to the Senate, but this is clearly good. The best evidence came from a man suffering from ALS, who said it didn't cure him but it did give him better days than without the drug.

Key Takeaways:

  • Indiana legislators have made an important step forward in legalizing cannabis-based medicines.
  • This bill sets a specific limit on the amount of certain substances in a cannabis derivative that can be allowed.
  • The hope is that this will simplify the regulatory landscape for consumers and producers in Indiana.

"A House committee passed legislation Wednesday to legalize cannabidiol, or CBD. The unanimously-approved bill takes a simpler approach to authorizing its use."

The cannabis industry has been booming since Colorados legalization and now with California's full legalization, it can get even larger. There are a few associated industries that will grow with it. The first is banking. Banking is key because currently, it is semi-illegal to have a bank account if you sell cannabis. It is still illegal and the government can seize your assets as well as freeze the bank's assets. Consumer goods will be another huge market, since they'll need to move into a new arena to make cannabis and cannabis products more mainstream.

Key Takeaways:

  • Banking will be big for the cannabis industry, due to the normal locks that the industry faces
  • Currently, any cannabis supplier that uses a bank can have their assets legally seized and the bank faces legal action as well
  • Moving product to the consumer side will also be important as they move beyond the typical medicinal direction.

"Whether it’s medical or adult use – one statistic I came across that’s very interesting is that by 2020, the cannabis industry will be at approximately $17 billion. To put that in perspective for packagers, the natural cheese market right now is at about $12 billion."

While cinnamon has been linked to many body benefits, such as regulating blood sugar and lowering cardiovascular risk, it does nonetheless have coumarin, a compound that taken in excess amounts could lead to liver damage. For those that wish to continue to reap the benefits of cinnamon usage, without accruing the liver risks, it’s important to understand that there are two varieties of cinnamon.

Cassia cinnamon, which has a stronger taste, is the variant most usually found in supermarkets, as well as the variant with the highest amount of coumarin. Meanwhile, Ceylon cinnamon, a native of Sri Lanka, which is also more costly than the Cassia cinnamon, has thinner layers than its more universally used counterpart and also up to 18 times less of the liver-damaging compound. Therefore, despite the cost, Ceylon may be the cinnamon health-seekers should look for.

Key Takeaways:

  • Few people know that there are actually two different varieties of cinnamon available to for consumption by consumers.
  • The cinnamon may contain substances harmful to the human body, and the less-common variety of cinnamon, Ceylon cinnamon, has 18 times less of these harmful substances
  • The lesser-known and less popular Ceylon cinnamon variety may have health benefits to humans that are not existant in the more-popular cassia variety.

Even the least health conscious consumer has been inundated with enough data to understand the red flag that is excess fat and cholesterol in the diet. Many of us are unaware of the nature of triglycerides, however, which are another important red flag.

Triglycerides are fat within the body that arise from calorie consumption, but not directly from fat. When we consume more calories than we need, the body transforms these calories into fat, specifically triglycerides. Therefore decreasing actual fat consumption is not necessarily the most proactive way to reduce an unhealthy excess of triglycerides.

Healthy triglyceride levels in human blood should average at less than 150 mg per deciliter. With higher levels comes a greater risk of clots and strokes. To mitigate the risk of these problems its a good idea to lower sugar and refined carbohydrate intake, as both of these categories are highly caloric, leading ultimately to a risk of high triglyceride production in the body. The American Heart Association recommends no more than 25-37 grams of sugar, or 6-9 tsps per day, for normal adults.

Acrylamide, a chemical created when carbohydrate rich foods are cooked at high temperatures can be found in potato chips, French fries, cereal, toast and coffee among other foods. The chemical has been shown to cause cancer in animals with mixed studies in humans. It can be avoided by shortening cooking times or boiling instead of frying or baking/broiling and don't overcook your food. Soak your potatoes before cooking and avoid potato chips. Keep in mind it firms from plant-based foods so be aware when you cook these types of foods

Key Takeaways:

  • In 2002, researchers discovered a cancer-causing and potentially neurotoxic chemical called acrylamide is created when carbohydrate-rich foods are cooked at high temperatures
  • Acrylamide is the byproduct of a chemical reaction between sugars and the amino acid asparagine, which occurs at high temperatures.
  • To cut acrylamide from your diet, the agency recommends avoiding fried foods, and toasting or cooking items such as bread and potatoes to a light golden color rather than dark brown or blackened.

"In November 2013, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Consumer update advising people to reduce consumption of foods in which acrylamide is plentiful, noting this toxic byproduct is found in 40 percent of calories consumed by the average American."

Subject: How rare sugars might help control blood glucose





Someone's glucose levels being too high can be a major problem. This can cause many health issues. It can even lead to diabetes. This talks about how rare sugars can actually help lower levels. It's funny to think of sugars being good for you but this explains it in a more understandable way.

Key Takeaways:

  • There are natural sugars that can replace sucrose (normal sugar) to improve diet without much sacrifice to flavor. These are called "rare sugars."
  • Some rare sugars can be manufactured from ingredients we already have in abundance, like allulose can be made from high fructose corn syrup.
  • Experiments performed on rats showed that rare sugar intake is similarly desirable to the test animals, but resulted in considerably less body mass gain.

"In an era when the label “natural” hits a sweet spot with Consumers, some uncommon sugars emerging on the market could live up to the connotation."

If it continues to expand and reaches all 50 states, it could become even bigger than the organic foods market. According to The ArcView Group, a research company focused on cannabis industry investment, the U.S. market grew 74% in 2014, up from the prior year of $1.5 billion.

Key Takeaways:

  • states that have legalized cannabis are benefiting from taxes.
  • Colorado is expected to generate $135 million in cannabis taxes and licenses fees in fiscal year 2015-16
  • the Cannabidiol (CBD) market will grow to a $2.1 billion market in Consumer sales by 2020 with $450 million of those sales coming from hemp-based sources.

"A report published by The Hemp Business Journal estimates that the Cannabidiol (CBD) market will grow to a $2.1 billion market in Consumer sales by 2020 with $450 million of those sales coming from hemp-based sources. In 2015, the market for Consumer sales of hemp-derived CBD products was $90 million, plus another $112 million in marijuana-derived CBD products which were sold through dispensaries - bringing a total CBD market to $202 million last year"

Subject: How much turmeric should you actually be taking?





A person might wonder how much turmeric they should actually be taking. Around 500 milligrams of curcuminoids a day is a good wellness dose for keeping inflammation away and promoting good gut health. It needs to be combines with pepper though, so your body absorbs it better. Health is the name of the game here.

Key Takeaways:

  • Curcumin is the most important part of the turmeric herb.
  • Curcumin is difficult to absorb, so pairing it with black pepper helps aid absorption.
  • A balanced diet is just as important as getting a proper dose of anti-inflammatory curcumin everyday.

"Food and beverage manufacturers are savvy—they know Consumers are on the lookout for new ways to get their turmeric, which is why the buzzy ingredient is starting to pop up in more products."

Subject: Hemp is a Wonder Plant





Hemp is a really amazing plant. Energy drinks are a huge industry, but most of them are very unhealthy and even illegal to be sold to minors. The government of the United States has outlawed a crop that was cultivated for 10000 years. However, there has been an easing on the restrictions from both the state and federal levels recently.

Key Takeaways:

  • Energy drinks are a multi-billion dollar industry while at the same time one of the most criticized. Energy drinks are thought of as poison by many with politicians and healthcare professionals alike trying to eliminate the industry.
  • Bills have been passed in the EU and the US to ban sales to minors. I’m not sure why. The only thing that ought to scare is the sugar content. That doesn’t change the fact there are growing health concerns, warranted or not.
  • With the power food hemp, its products have ingredients everyone can read and understand right away: carbonated water, beet sugar, citric acid, guarana extract, caffeine, ginseng extract, and natural flavor. Most importantly, it doesn’t contain high fructose corn syrup.

"As cannabis continues to legalize, hemp is a wonder plant with never ever benefits, and it will continue to integrate in Consumer products like RMHB."

Subject: Olive oil could slash your chance of bone fractures in half, study says





Extra virgin olive oil could have better benefits besides making your meals taste better. A recent study found that people who regularly consume EVOO have a decreased risk of osteoporosis and bone fracture. When regular olive oil was analyzed, it was not found to have the same benefits. The reason behind this difference is believed to be due to the greater amount of processing. The olives that are pressed into EVOO contains the highest amounts of antioxidants and bio-active compounds.

Key Takeaways:

  • The phenolic compounds found in extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) have a potential benefit on bone health, lowering the risk of fractures by 51%, if consumed regularly, say Prevención con Dieta Mediterránea (PREDIMED) researchers from Madrid.
  • However common olive oil – where 80% of the make-up is refined oil – consumption is not associated with a lower risk of fractures in the study.
  • Mintel say the health benefits of EVOO could be the reason why so many of us are willing to pay higher prices for it, as 39% of Consumers prefer EVOO compared to 22% who prefer common olive oil.

"Eating more extra virgin olive oil could cut your risk of osteoporosis related fractures, says a new study."

Subject: What changes are coming to the Nutrition Facts label?





Nutrition and how company’s market to Consumers has been a hot topic lately. This article focuses on the changes coming to the nutritional labels included on many of the products you will find in your local grocery store. If you are the type of person who focuses on the labels included on the products you are buying, this is definitely a good read.

Key Takeaways:

  • Nutrition labels will now show serving sizes based on the sizes of the servings people typically eat, rather than on how much they should eat.
  • The FDA decided to include Added Sugars on the labels, based on the recommendation for Americans to have no more than 10 percent of the daily calories come from added sugars.
  • Calories from fat will no longer be seen on the nutrition labels since the type of fat is more important to health than total fat.

He recommends one tea bag, at least half an hour before you plan to crack open a beer or order wine. This can help, he said, because it has antioxidants that may protect the liver from damage caused by alcohol. "That's my favorite way to support the liver during this time," said Davidson, based in Irvine, Calif. "Help it do its job at a very high level." Some health experts caution that too much green tea can cause damage in rare cases, so don't try to equal your green tea intake with your alcohol.

Key Takeaways:

  • With the changing food habit and Consumer preferences towards nutritious food, the edible mushrooms are gaining immense popularity.
  • Mushrooms are considered to be the highest producer of protein per unit area and time and are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals too.
  • Mushrooms are rich in quality proteins, vitamins B complex (thiamine, riboflavin and niacin) including Folic acid, vitamin B-12, vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and fibre.

"Recent investigations have proved the empirical observations of the oriental herbalists that certain mushrooms possess many useful medicinal values."
