Medicinal plants have great importance these days and the better way to provide medicines is to give them as food. Mushrooms are one of the good sources of food that has good nutritional and therapeutic value. They are the constituents of a good diet which boosts up the immune system and helps to fight diseases like cancer. From ancient times people of China believed that the mushrooms have anti-aging properties and they had been consuming mushrooms as their important diet. Along with the anticancer and anti-aging properties, they increase brain activity. One major advantage of mushrooms over other vegetables is their growth period, i.e., they can grow around the year while many vegetable plants are seasonal. The present review article is focused on the nutritional and therapeutic properties of button mushrooms in more detail, which will help the researchers working in this area to design further experiments and explore more on this plant.
