Pink Oyster (Pleurotus djamor)

The bright pink color of the Pink Oyster sets it apart from the rest of the Pleaurotus species. Aside from the color, here are some medicinal benefits of these mushrooms that make them favorites for the hobbyist growers:

  • While mushrooms are not usually known for their nutritional value, pink oysters have a lot of nutrition in the form of high protein, high fiber, low fat, no cholesterol, and vitamins such as niacin and riboflavin. Pink oysters are a great source of nutrition without being packed by calories. It’s an uncommon but healthy snack.
  • Pink oysters retain anti-oxidant properties such as vitamin E and can protect you against damage from free radicals, radiations, and smoke.
  • They can also use their antibacterial activity to cleanse your body off of unwanted bacteria and assist in speedy recovery from an active illness.
  • While cancers can be a grave threat to the body, their growth can be potentially halted using pink oysters and they can also assist in killing off tumor cells, retarding the progression of the disease.
  • These mushrooms can boost immune system of the user and enables them to fight off infections easily without succumbing to a serious illness.
  • They can lower cholesterol or prevent the levels from reaching threatening levels. This provides vascular support so that the person doesn’t develop ischemia or cardiovascular diseases. It lowers blood pressure so that the user is less likely to have any heart problems such as myocardial ischemia, atherosclerosis, ischemic heart disease, and so on.

    Received my order a couple of weeks back. So glad I went with Artisan Mushrooms for starting my mycology journey!! Garfield is a pure gent and full of advice and help, I know 100% I have been annoying him with any and all queries and he always finds the time to reply. Has helped me so much at such an early stage.

    Regarding the Pink Oysters. Wow. Currently in colonisation phase, and these genetics are ramping through the grain spawn. I’ve watched a fair few videos on PO, and whatever Garfield has managed to genetically carry through, is just amazing. I have not seen mycelium spread like this before. Amazing culture, and an amazing seller/lover of mycology!
