Oahu's Shabu Shabu Experts on the Health Benefits of Mushrooms

Mushrooms are more than just a delicious addition to salads, soups, and other meals. They also offer major health benefits. That’s why the team at Rokaru Shabu Shabu, offering quality Japanese food in Pearl City, HI, incorporates them into many dishes. If you’re looking for a delicious meal that’s also good for you, head to this Japanese restaurant and enjoy one of their menu items featuring enoki mushrooms.


Fighting Free Radicals

When electrons split in oxygen cells in the body, they look for other electrons to pair up with. This means ravaging through cells. These are what we refer to as free radicals, and they can cause a wide range of health problems, from premature aging to cancer. Antioxidants serve to stop free radicals in their tracks. Luckily for fans of shabu shabu and other types of Japanese food, mushrooms have major antioxidant properties.


Keeping Inflammation & Viruses at Bay

Mushrooms also have natural antioxidant and antiviral qualities. Together, these properties make them very useful at fending off health conditions. If you’re consuming foods with antiviral compounds, you’re less likely to get sick from a virus. However, it’s also important to guard against inflammation, which can cause pain and interfere with the body’s natural healing processes.


Losing Weight

Mushrooms are ideal for anyone on a diet because, while they’re packed with helpful compounds and nutrients, they actually don’t contain many calories. Plenty of mushrooms are actually 90% water; you’ll enjoy major health benefits from them without having to worry about putting on excess weight.
