Daily Mushroom Gummies - Boosting Daily Function with Troomy Nootropics in Whittier, CA

Boosting Your Health Naturally Has Never Been Easier With Just ONE Gummy

Adaptogenic mushrooms are a necessity today for the daily routine. They're in recipes, supplements, and everything in between in 2023.

Now it's time to build you a foundation with these little superfoods. Once we have a strong foundation in place using medicinal mushrooms (or adaptogenic mushrooms), you can boost straight into mushroom-powered wellness combinations that take you even a step further than before. Today, we'll start with lion’s mane and chaga, two fan-favorites at Troomy.

Together, each of these work together to help your daily focus, support your immune system naturally, reduce stress, and more. They’re in the family of mushrooms that’s considered “adaptogenic,” which really sets the bar high for any mushroom-powered wellness blend to jump onto the scene today.

At Troomy, we’ve taken this responsibility seriously to create a reliable, safe way to get your vitamins, proteins, and functional support in your day fast. We’ve compiled fourteen different mushrooms into our adaptogenic mushroom blends for you to try today, including:

  • Chaga

  • Reishi

  • Lion’s Mane

  • Cordyceps

Each of these goes above and beyond in a different area, and come together as a superfood team to boost you into a far more productive day ahead. That can be anywhere from getting better sleep, reducing stress, and exercising better, to just getting more vitamins and proteins into your diet while keeping your routine natural.

For most of our team members, that starts with chaga and lion’s mane. The sort of “leaders in the clubhouse” of adaptogenic mushrooms. These two are an excellent pair together as complete support for elevating focus, boosting productivity, and more. Some have used them in the past in mushroom coffee.

Today, mushroom gummies are the new way to go. We’ll take a quick overview into how lion’s mane and chaga can individually be huge superfoods that set up your diet for success, while also finding the perfect mushroom supplement for you in Daily.

Adaptogenic Mushrooms with Troomy Nootropics in Whittier, CA - Chaga 

What Are Functional Mushrooms?

The functional mushrooms we use at Troomy are an echelon above the average pizza topping. The term simply refers to the adaptogenic, top-performing mushrooms that can reshape your routine with fruiting body power, vitamins, proteins, and functional purpose.

In the past, they've just been hard to find at the grocery store. While some might have cordyceps, chaga, or lion’s mane on hand, you should expect to find them only in a handful of shops.

The highly-popularized new route to boosting adaptogenic mushroom use is supplements.

How Can I Use Them?

Really depends on what kind of boost you're looking for. Chaga and lion's mane can both be blended into teas, coffees, mushroom powder, gummies, and more. For example, if you're using chaga to wind down for the day, coffee might not be the best route with the caffeine content in most blends. Cordyceps can be a great mushroom to work in as a natural alternative to caffeine, though not every coffee blend utilizes cordyceps.

The same goes for lion's mane. While lion's mane can be more universally applied throughout the day, thinking of if you want caffeine, sugar, and other additives that most companies blend is important. 

At Troomy, we keep it simple in our gummies and make sure you're just getting exactly what you need. Zero caffeine, zero added sugars for your daily support.

Lion’s Mane Mushroom: Health Benefits, Daily Support, and More

Lion’s mane (or hericium erinaceus) is a fan favorite here at Troomy. It’s spectacular for boosting mental clarity and elevating your cognitive function, while also offering strong support for regulating your body’s natural protectors from all kinds of ailments.

Getting it’s name from the flowing mane, almost urchin-like appearance, lion’s mane is also an outstanding daily nutritional supplement that has elevated to support daily function well beyond just getting some vitamins. As a team, we’ve been honing our craft to make our Focus blend get the absolute most out of lion’s mane mushroom extract for daily use.

Focus and Cognitive Function

This actually might not be the most straightforward answer you’d expect on how lion’s mane can functionally boost cognitive function. Instead of just activating brain cells at a higher level or reducing response times, lion’s mane has been linked to reducing inflammation in the brain.

Suprisingly enough, inflammation is actually rooted heavily in many ailments and is what lion’s mane aims to reduce. This can directly improve blood flow, giving your brain better performance.

Nerve Growth Factor

Rooted in neurohealth, lion’s mane is a superstar for boosting nerve growth factor health. Your nerve growth factor impacts a whole slew of cognitive function components, which can make or break how productive, how focused, and how consistent you are in a given day.

Additionally, you can target ailments in what makes your days tougher. Take brain fog, for example. Brain fog is that lacking sense of focus that kills all of our productivity. When you just can’t seem to remember a name, keep your eyes on a project, or feel like you’re really getting the most out of yourself, you could be experiencing brain fog.

That's where lion's mane can really set itself apart. Giving you quality, organic support to make sure you stay on task, and maintain strong nerve growth factor in your daily routine.

Immune System Support

Flu season just seems to never end sometimes. You need your immune system working at its best, and lion's mane is a perfect pairing with chaga to make that happen.

This starts in the intenstinal immune system, which is where the body needs the most protection from pathogens, which usually enter the body through the mouth or nose. Elevating this support will reduce your risk of getting those common colds and keep you feeling your best for longer, pushing to increase your daily health routine overall.

Depression Support, Nervous System Health

Depression has become an extremely common disorder in neuropsychiatric health. For the most part, anti-depressants can have a wide range of side effects that majorly will impact your mental clarity, anxiety, appetite, and more. Staying clean with organic anti-depressants like adaptogenic mushrooms are surefire ways to reduce the inflammation surrounding ailments like depression, and keep your nervous system functioning with rapid nerve cell growth. 

Fortunately, Troomy's made finding organic lion's mane simple so you can get all these benefits boosted into one functional gummy. While chaga's fantastic as well, if you do just want to target lion's mane in your diet, you can give Focus a try today to get started.

The Chaga Mushroom: Health Benefits, Uses, and More!

The chaga mushroom you might be a bit less familiar with than lion’s mane. Surpisingly enough, it's actually been used as a dietary supplement in eastern culture's for thousands of years. These little buggers are usually found in birch trees and might not look the most appealing, but are actually offer major health support through their beta-glucans and poysaccharide composition.

Overall, it has been a leading supplement for natural stress relief and sleep support over the last decade or so now in North America. While you don't have to use it daily to get the benefits you might be looking for, it's recommended in order to get your body acclimated to the vitamin and protein support.

Antioxidants and Anti-Inflammatory Support

Chaga is extremely high in antioxidants, which are vital for your body’s reaction and protection against free radicals. Free radicals are a big factor in:

  • Anti-Cancer Support

  • Cardiovascular Health

  • Immune System Performance

    Without antioxidant protection, each of these risks are increased as your proteins, lipids, and others are targeted. Luckily, chaga is a natural antioxidant booster that regulates inflammation and immune system support with polyphenols and beta-d-glucans.

    Immune System Function

    Next up, we have the immune system. Immune system support can be a much more readily apparent factor in your day. You may not notice or feel the impact of anti-cancer support as much, but you definitely will when your immune system is staying healthy.

    When it comes to helping your immune system with chaga, polysaccharides are your best friend. These are the piece of chaga mushrooms that have been linked to elevating immune system response, providing a quicker recovery time and relieving oxidative stress. When they start funneling into your diet regularly, you can completely shift how your body responds to viruses and feeling low, while also getting some major vitamin support on the back end.

    Overall, getting sick and derailing projects or other factors of your life is always frustrating, and it’s vitally important you stay on track with keeping your body feeling its best in this area.

    Blood Sugar Levels, Cardiovascular Health

    Regulating your blood sugar is vital as well. It can majorly impact your risk of heart disease, nerve issues, vision impairment, and stroke. To keep these levels regulated from the mycelium-covered mushroom, you can gradually prevent oxidation of cholesterol in the bloodstream. This can help your cardiovascular health overall, but primarily blood pressure support and regulating blood sugar is what has been found in studies. 

    With these added health support areas, you can get quality support with lion's mane pairings as well.

    Can Chaga and Lion's Mane Be Taken Together?

    Yes! These two mushrooms are a fantastic pair, and should be used regularly together to get the most out of your daily routine.

    At Troomy, we've conveniently paired chaga, lion's mane, and twelve other mushrooms into one superstar blend called Daily. Daily aims to offer the general support you might be looking for and aren't sure exactly where to get started with.

    There's all kinds of other routes that you could go, though. Gummies aren't for everyone, and it's worth at least knowing your options to find the perfect match for trying adaptogenic mushrooms today.

    How Should I Try Chaga and Lion’s Mane?

    Coffees and Teas

    This is always a fine place to start. You might not be sure how the mushrooms would be on your own, or you don’t have a recipe yet that you’d enjoy the mushrooms with.

    Although, the thing with mushroom coffee is most blenders still pack them full of caffeine. This can greatly diminish moving away from you average cup of coffee to something different, and minimize the effort you’re making. Instead, veering away from coffee and going for raw mushrooms might be a better route to go.

    Raw Mushrooms

    Raw mushrooms are simple to try and can be a fantastic part of your routine. No added ingredients, nothing to worry about with straight lion’s mane and chaga.

    The thing is, expenses for raw mushrooms can pile up fast. Having fresh mushrooms on hand isn’t always easy, and can really reshape how you feel about using the supplement. You'll be stacked up with recipes and finding the time to cook mushrooms. 

    Mushroom Gummies

    Mushroom gummies are the perfect combination of the two. You can still get the quality support from mushroom extract, while also having a delicious fruity flavor with a strategically-crafted dosage for optimizing your results.

    Additionally, mushroom gummies can set themselves apart in a handful of major ways. Daily Mushroom Gummies - Boosting Function Fast with Troomy Nootropics in Whittier, CA - Lion's Mane Mushroom, Chaga Mushroom
