Seniors who eat more than two standard portions of mushrooms weekly may be half as likely to develop mild cognitive impairment (MCI), according to the findings of a study revealed on Tuesday (Mar 12).

The study, which was conducted on 600 Chinese seniors over the age of 60, defined a portion as three quarters of a cup of cooked mushrooms with an average weight of around 150g.

Two portions would be equivalent to about half a plate.

"While the portion sizes act as a guideline, it was shown that even one small portion of mushrooms a week may still be beneficial to reduce chances of MCI," according to a press release from the National University of Singapore (NUS).
