Vitamin D

Vitamin D can help you absorb calcium which as you may know is the main building block of your skeletal system and your bones. Besides mushrooms, fish oil, fatty fish and beef liver are high in vitamin D. However, mushrooms are low calorie and delicious, so they are a great choice for increasing vitamin D in your diet. Lack of vitamin D may cause health problems such as osteomalacia (in adults) or rickets (in children). - Vitamin D

Kinkatsu Level Check

The word "kinkatsu" is actually 2 words: "kin" - meaning fungi or bacteria- and "katsu" - meaning activity or life. Together, they create "kinkatsu": the practice of incorporating mushrooms (and foods with plenty of good, gut-friendly bacteria) into every meal and your general lifestyle. 

Mushrooms are the staple ingredient in any kinkatsu practice, but don't feel limited! Since "kin" also refers to the good bacteria in our bodies that keep us happy and healthy, you can enjoy kinkatsu with delicious foods like yogurt, natural cheese, and root vegetables! All these great options are perfect for kinkatsu's healthy lifestyle.
