Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Mushrooms are a superfood. Chock full of vitamins and minerals, they are a great source of selenium. Selenium is an important essential mineral that also acts as an antioxidant. Studies have linked selenium with a lower risk of colon cancer, and is necessary for proper thyroid function.

Note: While mushrooms are fantastic nutrient power houses, they do have FODMAPs. So this drink may not be suitable for Fodmap sensitive people. Fodmaps are water-soluble so they would in fact leak out of the mushroom and into the water.
