Mushrooms contain active polysaccharides, one of which is a type of soluble fiber called beta-glucan. This compound activates parts of your immune system, including immune cells called natural killer cells and macrophages, and by so doing it increases your body’s ability to fight infection and possibly even stop the growth or progression of tumors.
Mushrooms also contain B vitamins as well as a powerful antioxidant called selenium, which helps support the immune system and prevent damage to cells and tissues.

White button mushrooms contain dietary fibers and antioxidants, vitamins C, D, and B12, folates, and polyphenols.

Therefore, the consumption of mushrooms is beneficial in reducing cholesterol levels in the hypocholesterolemic patient
