Organic Lions Mane Mushroom Coffee

This is our newest creation here at Freshly Fermented. We are using the best quality fair trade coffee beans, and our own organic Lions Mane mushroom powder. Our organic Lion’s Mane powder is made from mushrooms we culture, grow, and harvest on site offering you the freshest lion’s mane powder on the market. The majority of Lion’s Mane powder/capsules on offer are manufactured from dehydrated mushrooms. While dehydrating mushrooms to preserve them is an age-old tactic, around 20-30% of the medicinal benefits are lost when compared to fresh mushrooms during the dehydrating process.

So what is Organic Lion’s Mane mushroom and why would I need it?

Eastern civilisations have been using this mushroom for centuries touting its many health benefits. More recently, Western medicine has jumped on the Lion’s Mane bandwagon after a recent study showed that this mushroom can actually help with adult dementia. Studies have found that Lion’s Mane mushrooms contain two special compounds that can stimulate the growth of brain cells: hericenones and erinacines.

Additionally, animal studies have found that lion’s mane may help protect against Alzheimer’s disease, a degenerative brain disease that causes progressive memory loss. Another study went on to suggest that in older adults with mild cognitive impairment who consume 3 grams of powdered Lion’s Mane mushroom daily for four months had a significant improvement in their mental functioning.

On top of lion’s mane ability to rewire our brains, it’s also anti-inflammatory and high in polysaccharides and beta-glucans making it a fantastic gut-healthy prebiotic. With so many health benefits, it is no wonder that this nootropic mushroom is now being touted as a super mushroom. Why wouldn’t you want to include Organic Lion’s Mane mushroom as part of your healthy lifestyle?

Why mushroom coffee?

There are lots of reasons why adaptogens such as medicinal mushrooms and coffee work amazingly well when paired together. The first is with adaptogenic coffee you get all the benefits of drinking normal coffee but also minimising any side effects (think jitters, racing heart and anxiety). Caffeine is a nootropic all on its own, it increases our alertness and attention by blocking our adenosine receptors (which make us sleepy). However, on the flip side, caffeine can also increase our cortisol levels (the stress hormone) and cause more jitters, racing heart and anxiety.

Adaptogens such as medicinal mushrooms may help balance the body’s cortisol levels, which allows us to enjoy our lovely coffee and get the benefits of caffeine without the nasty jitters etc! Mushroom coffee has been shown to be beneficial to people who are caffeine sensitive, which allows them to reap the benefits of caffeine without the above mentioned side effects.

Secondly, caffeine is absorbed very quickly into the blood system and we start feeling the benefits within about 15 mins of consumption. However, as we all may have experienced at some point in our lives, it can also lead to a “crash” (lack of energy, fatigue, drowsiness etc). Adaptogens such as medicinal mushrooms support a sustained level of energy, but without the “crash”.

IMPORTANT: We recommend you research the potential health benefits of Lions Mane online and any possible contraindications. It is a good idea, as with any new supplement, to consult with your own medical practitioner if you are unsure about taking it, particularly if you are taking other medication or have an existing medical condition.
