Mushrooms are one of the few foods that are plant based that can supply vitamin D. Ergosterol is found in mushrooms and it turns into vitamin D as it is exposed to ultraviolet light. To enhance the vitamin D content of your mushrooms, set them in the sun for an hour before cooking. Oyster mushrooms and other fungi are the only sources of ergothioneine, which functions as an antioxidant and lowers systemic inflammation.
