Cordyceps: help your body produce energy
Reishi: stress and sleep
Chaga: support immunity
Lion’s mane: cognitive enhancement
There’s also a medicinal component to mushrooms. Humans are more closely related to mushrooms than plants. Technically, they aren’t part of the plant or plantae kingdom, but part of the fungi kingdom. Here’s a link that will tell you more. Mushroooms- More Like Humans than Plants Mushrooms can be used directly or indirectly in many pharmaceuticals including penicillin, tetracycline, and statins.
But how do they taste?
I have to say I’ve really liked everything I’ve tried so far! I absolutely love their hot cacao mix and their mushroom coffee with lion’s mane. I like to add the 10 mushroom blend to my coffee every morning. This way I’m starting my day with a super dose of mushrooms. At night I love to wind down with the hot cacao or reishi mushroom elixir. My favorite thing about these products is that they are so portable for travel. They all come in little packets that you can easily throw in your bag and all you need is hot water!
I hope you’ll give these guys a try. It’s a fun, easy way to add extra nutrients, boost your immune system and energy along with a some cognitive enhancement.
