Superfoods like mushrooms are finding their way into coffee and tea.
All after they’ve been found to help increase mental clarity, and assist with immune support.
For example, mushrooms such as Reishi can help with sleep, anxiety, and depression, according to Teelixir. Lion’s mane can help with memory, according to Healthline. Chaga can help with inflammation for example, according to Best Products. Turkey tail can help support the immune system, and assist with some cancer prevention, says Healthline.
In addition, according to Penny White, CEO of Better Plant Sciences, “Functional mushrooms are increasing in popularity for their ability to increase mental clarity, as well as for their range of health benefits, including immune support and energy-boosting qualities. We have formulated our coffees to be both healthy and delicious, and our instant blend is convenient, easy, and perfect for those on the go or those who are only looking to enjoy one cup at a time.”
Plus, according to How Stuff Works, “Functional mushrooms – i.e., mushrooms that are good for you – and coffee make for a natural combination. Both contain essential nutrients and antioxidants and both can be pretty damn tasty when prepared correctly. When added to coffee, one may experience a smoother digestive system (thanks to the natural prebiotics and polysaccharides in mushrooms) and stress management thanks to the adaptogens in mushrooms that mitigate caffeine’s jittery side-effects.”
