Since I got into a vegan diet last year, I started incorporating a wide array of vegetables, nuts, grains and legumes into my diet to make up for not eating meat and dairy products. Additionally, I’ve added more mushrooms into my salads, stir-fries and avocado toasts for the savory flavor and somewhat chewy texture. Grocery stores only carry very limited variety of mushrooms (white, crimini, oyster, shiitake, portobello). I like them, but I’m not obsessed about them.
Recently I found out that there are many more types of medicinal mushrooms that can influence our nervous system, oxygen intake, and even immune system.
They are NOT psychedelic and won’t make you trip out. But what they’ll do is they’ll give you sustainable energy, greater focus, immune system support, and also will improve your gut health and overall well-being.Unfortunately, grocery stores almost never sell those. But there is a simple and genius way to add them into our daily routine and it’s by means of drinking them.
I discovered the existence of mushroom drinks only a couple of months ago, when I celebrated my 30th birthday with a group of friends. Among multitude of gifts I received a few colorful packets of mushroom elixirs from a company called Four Sigmatic. I went through them in a week and fell in love not only with the flavor of those adaptogenic mushroom teas, but most importantly, with the way they made me feel.
I religiously have been drinking Four Sigmatic’s mushroom elixirs for the past month and half, and I clearly notice a big shift in the way I feel and function. This is why I really love Four Sigmatic products. The drinks taste amazing and make me feel extremely energetic and alert. My lifestyle implies waking up early, training clients 4-5 hours every day, and working out minimum of 2 hours a day. I have the energy to do all that with the support of adaptogenic mushrooms like codyceps, lion’s mane and chaga. I also sleep very well through the night and wake up on my own around 6-6.30am, feeling very rested and enthusiastic to live my life to the fullest!
I am super excited to announce that I have partnered with Four Sigmatic in order to share my love for mushroom drinks with you and help you get healthier with the use of this adaptogenic superfoods!
Here are the top three of my favorite mushroom drinks:
1. CORDYCEPS ELIXIR that I drink before high-intensity work out. Its flavor is hard to describe, maybe sweet and somewhat salty, I personally really like it.
2. CHAGA ELIXIR – antioxidant drink for immune system support, I drink it mid-day or in the afternoon as a little pick me up. It has a sweet flavor and I drink it as is or with a little bit of almond milk.
3. MUSHROOM COFFEE WITH LION’S MANE – my favorite morning drink to increase focus and productivity. I tend to add a little bit of nut milk and cinnamon to soften the coffee flavor.
There is also a starter box called “YOUR DAILY RITUAL”, which features two week’s worth of three essential mushroom products.
There are many more amazing flavors available on the website and I encourage you to read the description, see what resonates with you, and order a few different boxes so that you could have a variety of drinks for different purposes.
