How's Mushroom Coffee Better Than Regular Coffee?

How's Mushroom Coffee Better Than Regular Coffee?

Mushroom coffee is skyrocketing in popularity today and starting to get real traction in the average morning routine.

But what really makes it different than a regular cup of coffee? Are you gonna start growing fungus caps and shooting lasers from your fingertips?

Fortunately, that's not exactly the case (for most of us at least). Functional mushrooms are a health and wellness superstar that can kickstart your day using only natural ingredients without any of the crash.

What are Adaptogenic Mushrooms?

Adaptogenic or "functional" mushrooms are superfoods that have been linked to healing properties and a variety of forms of health support for thousands of years in eastern cultures. Now, they've become internationally recognized and packed into coffees, supplements, gummies, and even cocktails. 

These mushroom blends all aim to support:

  • Better brain function
  • Gut health
  • Immune system regulation
  • Increased energy
  • Elevated focus
  • Productivity boosts

On top of these primary areas of functional support, they're much more impactful than the average cup of coffee you'd be having in the morning today.

Mushrooms vs Coffee Beans

Low in Caffeine

Most blends of mushrooms are much lower in caffeine since mushrooms are so high in energy boosting support nutrients. That helps you avoid getting dependent on caffeine in your day to help you get through the tougher stretches, as well as less jitters.

Immune Support

Immune support comes with both coffees as a strong functional daily supplement. Your immune system is a key foundation piece to keeping you working well in the office, operating at a high level when focused in, and avoiding missing time. Missing time in class, the office, or anywhere in between is something nobody wants to go through.

Keep your body strong with quality immune system support from functional mushrooms.

High Antioxidants

Antioxidants are quality support for your daily health. They are essential for keeping your body's heart disease protection consistent, immune system regulated, and more. Your body shouldn't be overwhelmed by antioxidant support, as that can lead to further complications.

Simply adding a bit of functional mushrooms into your day through coffee or other blends should be done in moderation. No cup of coffee should be drank in excess, anyway. Mushrooms or no mushrooms.

Still, there's a lot to be gained from working in these fungi-based blends.


Both coffees offer strong protein in their blends. However, mushrooms are a bit higher and can offer a higher concentration of powerful protein in your morning or afternoon.

Zero Crash with Mushrooms

Mushrooms themselves have zero caffeine, so there's far less of a chance of crashing in the afternoon when you have mushroom blends.

However, that doesn't mean mushroom coffee won't have caffeine. They're much lower usually than a cup of regular coffee, sure, but there's still substantial caffeine there to help boost you forward. That's one of the key areas that mushroom gummies can be a step above coffee blends.

How are Mushroom Gummies Different?

 Quicker, Zero Prep Time

Having no prep time makes your morning that much easier. You can just grab a gummy and go without having to worry about putting a hot pot on or mixing it up just right.

Low Sugar, Low Calories

Some coffee blends have to be jacked up with tons of sugar to have any decent flavor. That takes away from the boost you're really getting and makes it an artificial, weaker result for your routine to be successful.

Fortunately, with some strategic flavoring and natural boosting, mushroom gummy blends have outstanding flavor.

No Caffeine, No Crash

While mushroom coffee lowers your caffeine intake, mushroom gummies can eliminate it completely. Since they're so tightly jam-packed into little gummies, the energy-boosting properties are so concentrated that they can help your energy a ton.

Fruity Flavors

Similar with calories and sugars, when you cut down on both, you usually lose a ton of flavor. Not with mushroom gummies, though. Mushroom gummies almost taste like candy without any of the serious health concerns that candy creates.

Luckily today, it's easier than ever to blast these flavors into your daily routine.
