Mushrooms are super-low in calories (1 cup sliced has about 20 calories), but are brimming with nutrients like folate, thiamin, vitamin B6, iron, and zinc. Mushrooms also contain an antioxidant called L-ergothioneine, which has been linked to kidney and liver protection. Both these organs help naturally detox your body.
