Who knew that Oyster Mushrooms (Pleurotus ostreatus), contained something called “Ubiquitin” which stops influenza A viruses in their tracks? Flu viruses from that strain simply can’t replicate themselves in your cells if “ubiquitin” is present.
All I know, is that I have been craving vegetables, and soup. Yes, I’ve been eating other things, but mainly I crave vegetables and soup.
This easy soup comes together in less than 1/2 an hour, and serves 2 people with small appetites.
*Edited to add 1/2 t maitake mushroom powder, stirred in at the end. The maitake mushroom is another strong immune system builder*
