You’ve been there; set the alarm on snooze a few too many times, rolled out of bed groggy & unready, ad skipped the morning shower in favour of lining up for an AM cup of joe.

If you’re a coffee lover looking to enhance your daily routine, then we’ve got some good news for you!
Adding functional mushrooms to your morning coffee can provide a massive variety of health benefits including increased energy levels, weight loss, and improved overall wellness, all while masking the taste of your mushroom extract. Read on to explore the benefits of functional mushrooms, how they work, and how you can incorporate them into your morning coffee routine.
What are Functional Mushrooms and How Do They Help Your Body?
Functional mushrooms, also known as medicinal mushrooms, mushroom extract, or health- edible mushrooms, are specifically researched species of mushrooms containing compounds that can help your body respond to stress, anxiety, illness, and fatigue. Reishi, Turkey.T, cordyceps, chaga, lion’s mane, tremella, and shiitake are some of the most well-known & best researched functional mushrooms, and they have excitingly been found to contain compounds that can help regulate your body’s stress response and promote balance & homeostasis.
When consumed regularly, functional mushrooms work to improve your body’s ability to cope with anxiety and other challenges, boost your immune system, reduce inflammation, sleep better, lock in hydration for better skin health, and support overall wellness. As an example, if you struggle with dull skin, why not try mixing some tremella & shiitake into your morning coffee to make it a functionally coffee!? Both of these functional mushrooms work in unison to moisturise, balance, and tone the skin, providing a supple & radiant look within weeks of consistent use – all while sticking to your regular AM coffee routine!
