We all know that juicing is a great way to fuel our bodies and keep our systems strong, but there’s one amazing vegetable that you can’t juice, and that’s mushrooms. In fact, medicinal mushrooms, which often grow on trees, can help you relax and get a good night of sleep.
Mushrooms are known to help support immune function, lower inflammation, balance blood sugar and alter gut bacteria for the better too.
And you don’t have to go walking in the woods for hours to reap the benefits anymore.
One of my favorites are reishi mushrooms, which enhance the quality of deep, slow-wave sleep. You can drink them two hours before bed or anytime throughout a busy day.
The reishi mushroom extracts taste incredibly smooth, almost like a light version of coffee (without caffeine), mixed with herbs like peppermint and licorice to give it a fresh flavor. Best of all, they help you calm down and enjoy better sleep by naturally regulating the hormonal system and lowering your cortisol levels.
These products are also great for those of you on a Reboot looking for an alternative to coffee. Think of it as your morning cup of chill out.
I love that there’s finally a company dedicated to making quality mushrooms accessible to all. Four Sigmatic is a Finnish start-up recognized by Bon Appétit and many others for their work. All of their reishi products are USDA organic, vegan, gluten-free and paleo-certified.
The Reishi Elixir or the Mushroom Hot Cacao with Reishi come in portable packets that you can travel with or enjoy at home. The main ingredient in these extracts is pure log-grown reishi mushroom with no starch, refined sugars, or any fillers at all.
It’s true – mushrooms are one of the world’s most well-studied superfoods and are jam packed with amazing benefits!
CHAGA – ANTIOXIDANT PROPERTIES:
Chaga mushroom can help support immune functions. It is called the king of mushrooms. You’ll find growing naturally in the wild and it has antioxidant properties.
LION’S MANE – BRAIN & NERVOUS SYSTEM
Lion’s Mane is an all-natural cognitive enhancer. It has been shown to support memory and concentration.
REISHI – STRESS & SLEEP
If you have occasional stress and difficulty sleeping, Reishi mushroom can help you relax and get a good night sleep.
CORDYCEPS – ENERGY & PERFORMANCE
Cordyceps is an adaptogen, not a stimulant, so it helps you produce and maintain steady energy levels. Coffee can give you an energy spike, followed by a crash; cordyceps, on the other hand, helps your body produce its own energy.
Plus, mushrooms don’t just benefit our bodies’ internal environment. They can also improve the health of the ecosystems on which our very survival relies.
The Funguys at Four Sigmatic have made consuming mushrooms and superfoods delicious and super easy to do with their Mushroom Coffees, Mushroom Superfood Blends and Mushroom Elixirs. Just add their products to a cup of hot water, mix them into your smoothies or shakes or add them to one of your favorite recipes.
