Windmill Farms has recently begun to duplicate what happens in nature when mushrooms are exposed to light. Our research has found that mushrooms do respond to the light in a similar way humans do, by converting the sun’s ray into Vitamin D. Because of the natural levels of Vitamin D found in mushrooms, they synthesize Vitamin D when exposed to sunlight or artificial light. The light increases the Vitamin D in the mushrooms without the use of any additives, supplements or chemicals. Best of all, the Vitamin D remains stable, along with the nutritional value, even after cooking or freezing.

Whether you plan on cooking your mushrooms or eating them raw, you receive all the Vitamin D from the mushrooms. Our new mushrooms offer 100% of the recommended daily Vitamin D intake in one 100 gram serving.

Vitamin D has been shown to be essential for the body to absorb calcium and phosphorus. They are two critical elements for maintaining bone strength, Vitamin D is necessary for them to be utilized by the body. Up until now, the most common way for the body to get enough Vitamin D was exposure to the sun, food containing fish oil or supplemented milk products. Due to the increase concern over long term exposure to the sun and cancer related illnesses, adults and children need to boost their intake of Vitamin D daily.

Windmill Farms mushrooms offer a safe and more nutritious alternative. Whenever you buy Windmills 100% Vitamin D enhanced mushrooms, you will be assured of getting a minimum of 100% of the recommended daily intake (RDI) established by Health Canada. Mushrooms react to sunlight in the same way as humans and produce a totally natural form of Vitamin D. A single 100 gram serving will provide 100% of the RDI with no fat and no cholesterol and are completely safe and good for you.

Vitamin D has been linked to quite a few other health benefits in addition to bone health. Recent research has shown Vitamin D to be associated with a healthier heart, and early studies indicate a possible link between low levels of Vitamin D with cancers such as colon, breast, pancreatic and lung. Vitamin D has recently been quoted as “The possible nutrient of the decade”.

Vitamin D may prevent some cancers, diabetes and heart disease. New evidence suggests that Vitamin D plays a role in an adult’s immune system and may help prevent infections and autoimmune diseases. Conclusive evidence on the amounts required to prevent disease is not available yet, but it suggest that Vitamin D is helpful.

Vitamin D is a known antioxidant suspected to be effective in fighting a variety of cancers including colon, breast and prostate.

Vitamin D is suspected to be effective in fighting numerous diseases including multiple sclerosis, Type 1 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis.
