Coffee and mushrooms are two of the most widely-consumed things in the world. Both of them have long been rumoured to have health benefits, but can they be combined?
Before You Say "Mmm, Mycelium"
If you're interested in eating mushrooms because they can help lower cholesterol and blood pressure, I've got some good news: they can. A study found that regular consumption of traditional mushrooms was associated with lower blood pressure, as well as a decreased risk of heart disease.
Mushrooms are also rich in antioxidants, which can help protect your body against free radicals that damage cells and cause cancer (and other nasty things). But it's worth noting that not all mushroom varieties are created equal; some types have more antioxidants than others.
Chaga, Lion's Mane, Reshi and Cordyceps have amazing qualities to help with anxiety, energy and stress on the body.
The Benefits of Mushrooms and Coffee Alone
Mushrooms are a great source of vitamin D, which helps to lower your risk of heart disease and cancer. Mushrooms also contain B vitamins, which may help boost your mood.
Coffee is a good source of antioxidants, caffeine, and magnesium. Combine them together; they make a great daily ritual.
Mushroom-Coffee Side Effects
- If you're interested in trying mushroom coffee, check with your doctor first. Mushroom coffee is not for everyone and may interact with other medications, so it's important to make sure that mushroom coffee is safe for you to drink.
- If pregnant or breastfeeding, we advise it best to check with your doctor.
- Don't use mushroom coffee as a substitute for medical treatment. While mushroom coffee has been found to have some health benefits, it's not an alternative or substitute for standard medical treatment. If you're experiencing any symptoms of serious illness or disease and want help managing them, please speak with your primary care provider about getting the treatment that is right for your situation.
The bottom line is that there are many benefits to drinking coffee. Try our Mushroom Tinctures which can be added to coffee, and any beverage on the go. Also, try our Moksha Mushroom Coffee Alternative.
The benefits of mushroom coffee might be even more impressive, but it's important to talk to your doctor first before adding this new drink into your routine.
