Make this creamy vegan mushroom-vegetable soup when you need a dose of anti-inflammatory nutrients! Mushrooms are a rich source of prebiotics that feed beneficial bacteria in the gut. Dietary intake of mushrooms also helps to raise secretory immunoglobulin A (SIgA) levels at the gut lining. Not only does SIgA help to neutralize pathogens, but it also helps to regulate the composition of the gut microbes. This helps to reduce gut inflammation and regulate the immune system—especially helpful after indulging in rich food over the holidays!
