Mushrooms have a pretty amazing history, and it’s one that is often considered mystical. As a food source, mushrooms can provide potent health benefits, and they also provide support to the environment around them. In fact, this is something completely unique to mushrooms, they don’t remove nutrients from the soil they grow in — they actually supplement it.
