I wrote a long blog article about why I chose them as my main source of medicinal mushrooms/tonic mushrooms. For starters, they do everything right. Secondly, they’re an easy way to get a high quality dose of medicinal mushroom. Thirdly, they’re fun and delicious.
I learned that it’s not wise to just buy any ol’ tonic mushrooms like reishi or chaga at just any ol’ store. If you want the best assimilation and bioavailability, they need to be processed precisely and Four Sigmatic does everything right. They use high quality ingredients. They test their products for crap and ensure clean ingredients.
They’re a great company, with very cool people, and it was fun meeting them in person at the Bulletproof Conference last year. I remember having a bad headache when I was there and one of the Four Sigmatic sweethearts brewed me up something extra special to help.
I’m especially fascinated with mushroom products for brain power and longevity. I want to maintain a strong brain for, well, forever. I plan to live past 100 years of age and I want Four Sigmatic to help me do that. After listening to the Awakening with Alzheimer’s series this week, mind blown on what I learned (no pun), I’m keeping things like this in my tool kit…
As such I’m especially enamored with Lion’s Mane for cognitive enhancement (memory and concentration) as well as cordyceps (a medicinal food for energy and mitochondrial adaptogen – important for brain health).
Of course I’m gaga for reishi and chaga, as they’re super immune boosters which are excellent for the upcoming winter months. Still… I’m more focused on Lion’s Mane and Cordyceps lately.
Although I’m a paying customer, and affiliate of Four Sigmatic, they sent me a lovely box of products to enjoy on the house. Thank you, Four Sigmatic.
There was a new product (to me)… ground coffee with Lion’s Mane and Chaga mixed in that you actually brew with a regular coffee pot. Just like traditional coffee, but amped up with awesomeness. I’ve been using my french press to make it (I no longer have my beautiful Technivorm drip coffee maker. We are moving abroad next year, so I sold it). The ground coffee mix was tasty, smooth, and effective. Brain power (Lion’s Mane) and Energy (caffeine) and Immune Boost (Chaga).
Also, I am a fan of their individual packets of coffee with tonic mushrooms or plain tonic mushrooms. Instant packets for my purse, the airplane, road trips, camping (some with coffee – yum – and some without) that I can just dump into a cup of warm water and drink. They’re convenient. Nuff’ said.
PLUS. They just came out with a new product … and guess what it is?
MATCHA!!!!! PLUS!!!! LION’S MANE!!!!!!!
I haven’t tried it yet, but I will this week. I will report back.
