Mushroom B12 content is higher than meat

Researchers at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom conducted a five-year follow-up study of 107 elderly people between 61 and 87 years of age and found that a large number of elderly people had reduced levels of vitamin B12 in their blood.

  In fact, with age, the body’s absorption of vitamin B12 also gradually decreases, disease resistance will also weaken, and nerve cells will be damaged in severe cases.

In the past, nutrition science believed that the main food source of vitamin B12 was meat, fish, and plant foods.

  In order to control blood sugar and lipids, elderly people with hypertension and cardiovascular diseases often add animal livers, meat with high protein content, and aquatic products to the “black list”.

Another part of vegetarians, because they do not consume meat for a long time, can easily lead to vitamin B12 deficiency.

  Although vitamin B12 is hardly found in some vegetables, mushrooms and other fungi are quite abundant.

In particular, the content of vitamin B12 in shiitake mushrooms is higher than that of meat.

Adults eat about 25 grams of fresh shiitake mushrooms every day, and the absorbed vitamin B12 immediately meets the standard.

  In addition, the cellulose contained in shiitake mushrooms can reduce the plasma absorption of intermediates.

Therefore, eating shiitake mushrooms once a day is the best choice for middle-aged and elderly people who are worried about the “three high problems”, as well as determined vegetarian lovers.
