Did you know that Mushrooms are a vegan source of Vitamin D, or rather that you can “make” Vitamin D Mushrooms???
I’ve been shouting about this for a decade, specifically the point that you can “charge” mushrooms under a UVB light, or the sun, effectively boosting the D content by 600+% making them vitamin D mushrooms, essentially a vitamin D supplement?
In this video, I share how I create my vitamin d mushrooms under my Sperti vitamin D lamp, which of course also works to create Vitamin D directly on/in your skin and is 27% off right now in the link above??
I go deeper into this subject with links and references along with my Favorite Sources of Vitamin D as a Vegan in my post all about it ??
Until recently I had always heard that mushrooms contain vitamin D2 which is effective in raising our D levels, but does not have as long-lasting effect as vitamin D3 produced in the skin in response to ultraviolet light, but, my friend Dan aka @enzyme.333 tipped me off to info I corroborated with Pubmed studies showing shiitake mushrooms actually produce Vitamin D3 when charged by uvb???
It’s pretty dang cool stuff, doesn’t matter if the mushrooms are fresh, dried, or even powdered and it appears that once charged and dried the vitamin D lasts for 6-12 months, a fun way to create tasty more natural D supplements! ?
As an aside, dried mushrooms go great in raw curries, Chilis, pizzas, pasta, stews, and more, not to mention even as a great sauce thickener??
