Mushrooms contain significant quantities of antioxidants, these molecules which neutralize free radicals responsible for cellular aging and the development of certain pathologies, including cardiovascular diseases. Among these antioxidants, astaxanthin is particularly interesting.

Present in certain varieties of mushrooms and microalgae, astaxanthin has recently been highlighted by several studies for its beneficial properties on the cardiovascular system:

  • Improved lipid profile: Astaxanthin helps reduce LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglyceride levels, while increasing HDL (good cholesterol) levels.

  • Regulation of blood pressure : It helps relax blood vessels, promoting better blood circulation.

A study published in the European Heart Journal, for example, demonstrated that a diet rich in potassium, such as that contained in bananas or mushrooms, could reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Nutrients beneficial for the heart

In addition to their richness in antioxidants and potassium, mushrooms also contain other nutrients essential for maintaining good cardiovascular health:

  • Dietary fiber, which helps control cholesterol levels and promotes satiety
  • B vitamins, which contribute to the proper functioning of the nervous system and energy production
  • Copper, which contributes to the formation of red blood cells and the transport of oxygen.
