Best Mushroom Coffees To Try That Boost Immunity And Energy

Most of the adult and now even the adolescent population depend on coffee each morning and throughout the day for energy. And while it's great for a morning or afternoon boost, drinking too much coffee can be a problem, leading to coffee addictions and increased heart rate.

So, why not make your daily cup a little healthier with mushroom coffee?

What is mushroom coffee?

Says Lisa Richards, a nutritionist and author of The Candida Diet, "Various medicinal mushrooms have been prepared in such a way that they are able to be added to coffee and boost the nutrient content of the drink. The extract from medicinal mushrooms are added to coffee to fortify or enhance the caffeinated drink's health benefits through extra nutrients."

And the benefits of these nutrients include better sleep, reduced inflammation, and enhanced immunity. But it's not just because of the medicinal mushrooms. Adds Richards, "A major component of the health benefits of mushroom coffee come from replacing artificial sweeteners and high calorie creamers with nutrient rich mushrooms.”

While some may consider mushroom coffee a fad, adding mushroom extract from reputable sources to your coffee is worth giving a try.
