    Default Mushrooms are not all created equal

    Beyond the issue of many mushrooms being toxic (inedible), a compound in Oyster mushrooms has been found to raise potassium too high; and another compound is also suspect of causing toxicity. Given this was by way of a concentrate IV, it is still a concern given other sources included in the diet are higher in potassium, as this one could cause the level of potassium in the blood to be overtopped into toxicity. This is especially a concern in older rodents, for older kidneys do not do well to handle potassium as they when young.

    Phosphorus levels in mushrooms are also a concern on this same account; for since many are highly inverted in Ca:P ratio, though not all edible sources are. This supported by research in female rats that found a somewhat higher ratio of Ca:P to be needful to support optimum bone density and health, than the ratio known to best support bone health ih juvenile rats.

    More studies on Mushrooms/Fungi

    Mushrooms vary in pH from highly acidic to highly alkaline. Choosing those of mid value should be the aim.

    Oregon Mushroom carries a variety of dried edible mushrooms; the Chanterelles and Morels are perhaps the best species.

    I like the ground mushroom powder as you can measure it easily.
