Part of the Fungal Biology book series (FUNGBIO)


These days’ edible mushrooms and there in vitro cultures are investigated more often and are used as part of pro-health prophylaxis. In addition to a typical prophylactic use, the multitude of bioactive substances provides them with a curative effect, which is supported by a series of credible tests. The basic nutrients contained in mushrooms and numerous secondary metabolites have a multifaceted, beneficial effect on immune system functioning. This is primarily an antioxidant activity that is reflected in a number of other properties characteristic of this type of material. It is the broadly understood antioxidant activity that makes edible mushrooms a popular element of the diet, with a potential protective effect against civilization diseases.
