Organic Medicinal Mushroom Mix Coffee
This is our newest creation here at Solent Shrooms. We are using the best quality fair trade coffee beans, and our organic Medicinal Mix mushroom powder. Our organic Medicinal Mushroom Mix powder is made from mushrooms we culture, grow, and harvest on site offering you the freshest Mushroom powder on the market.
So what is our Medicinal Mushroom Mix, and why would I need it?
Our organic medicinal mushroom mix is a combination of grade A quality mushrooms expertly mixed into an easy to use powder. When the polysaccharides of Reishi, Chaga, Shiitake, Maitake, Lion’s Mane, Cordyceps and White Fungus mushrooms are combined, they increasingly support the immune system, energy levels and many more benefits to enhance well-being. The mushrooms are from raw stock and have been freeze-dried, powdered and then blended into a smooth, easy to use powder form.
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 Nootropic Mushrooms 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.
