Lately I’ve been obsessed with my newest favourite superfood: mushrooms. Although, these aren't the psychotropic kind of mushrooms, they will still make you trip out over their incredible health benefits. "Four Sigmatic" has created delicious elixirs, hot chocolates and coffee to help you get the health benefits without the mushroom taste. The fungi used in these drinks are not the typical button mushrooms or portobello mushrooms. These mushrooms are found in the wild where pollution hasn’t touched them. They’ve been used for medicinal purposes for over 4,000 years and continue to show incredible health benefits. Each mushroom plays a role in restoring your overall balance while stimulating and improving a variety of functions in your body. Listed below are four of the powerful fungi and their benefits.
Chaga - Immune-boosting! Chaga mushrooms help reduce inflammation and fight off viral or other infections. They are packed with antioxidants and great for auto-immune diseases such as arthritis.
Reishi - Stress reducing! Reishi mushrooms help with hormonal regulation, help improve sleep and help calm the body. It's great when you need some relaxation and calmness in your day.
Cordyceps - Energizing! Cordyceps mushrooms give your cells fuel and energy! This is great for active people who would benefit from a natural workout booster. It also helps speed up recovery. Cordyceps helps those with asthma and other respiratory conditions as well.
Lion’s Mane - Brain Power! Lion's Mane mushrooms improves concentration and memory. This is great for when you're studying or working as it helps you feel more alert and able to concentrate. Lion's Mane also plays a role in the prevention of Alzheimers, Parkinson’s and other neurological diseases.

He feels he had much more concentration and memory benefits! He’s a firm believer the magical mushrooms!
