Baby Bella Mushrooms

Baby bella mushrooms, also called crimini mushrooms, share the dense, meaty texture of their larger portobello cousins but have the small, button-like shape of white mushrooms. Consuming baby bellas offers a range of benefits, because they provide you with essential minerals and vitamins that support good health.

Pantothenic Acid

Pantothenic acid, or vitamin B-5, activates coenzyme A, a compound that regulates your cholesterol levels, and also helps you produce hormones and chemicals needed for brain function. A cup of baby bella mushrooms contains 1.3 milligrams of pantothenic acid, or 26 percent of the recommended daily intake.

Copper

Copper activates enzymes needed to make neurotransmitters -- a family of chemicals essential for healthy brain function. It also nourishes your skin and hair, helping you make the melanin that protects these tissues from the sun. Copper keeps you going throughout the day by allowing for energy production in your cells. Each cup of baby bella mushrooms contains 435 micrograms of copper, just short of half the copper you need each day.

Niacin

A 1-cup serving of baby bellas offers 3.3 milligrams of niacin -- 24 percent of the recommended daily intake for women and 21 percent for men. Niacin helps your cells carry out chemical reactions, including reactions needed to convert food into energy. It also helps guide new cell growth, aids in cell communication and helps your cells repair damaged DNA before it can threaten your health.

Selenium

 

Like copper, selenium activates cellular enzymes. These enzymes keep your thyroid gland functioning, support healthy muscle metabolism and allow for sperm production in men. Other selenium-dependent enzymes protect your cells from toxic free radicals and combat cellular damage. Eating a cup of baby bella mushrooms boosts your selenium intake by 23 micrograms and provides approximately 42 percent of the selenium you need each day.
