Improving Your Mornings with Adaptogenic Mushrooms
by Alex Heining on Nov 09, 2022
Improving your mornings and being more productive can be tough to get started with when you don't have the right tools on-hand.
Luckily, our team at Troomy has assembled some of the most impactful adaptogenic mushrooms available to create reliable solutions for helping your morning get off on the right foot. Additionally, we've incorporated some lifestyle strategies to keep your daily routine consistent, sleep patterns successful, nutrition strong, and more.
What are Adaptogenic Mushrooms?
Adaptogenic mushrooms only pertains to a handful of mushrooms that you can find today. Even with 14,000 species of mushrooms discovered, the main five are:
- Lion's Mane
- Turkey Tail
If you're curious about how each of these mushrooms are individually composed and what makes each one different, you can meet the mushrooms we use in our blends here. In short, these five primary mushroom species are essential nutritional elements to the daily routine, as they are considered "functional."
What Makes an Adaptogenic Mushroom "Functional?"
Functional mushrooms simply have higher nutrient concentrate and vitamins than the average mushroom, as well as a targeted area of support. Take Lion's Mane, for example. Lion's Mane naturally targets better brain function and support with the nutrients it supplies.
How Can I Eat Adaptogenic Mushrooms?
There are a handful of primary strategies to get adaptogenic mushrooms into your diet fast. Depending on how much time you have, your budget, and your diet, you can arrange your meal planning for the morning and preparation around adaptogenic mushrooms to fit your needs best.
- Raw mushrooms - You can cook these in all kinds of recipes online today. Desserts, appetizers, and full meals can be crafted around the nutritional value that functional mushrooms offer. Natural flavors are relatively good and they're extremely low in calories.
- Powder supplements - Similar to cooking but with fewer steps. Take the same mushrooms in powder form, and you can craft them around daily juicing, smoothies, baked meals, etc. These powders get the same valuable nutrients, but are subject to having a more artificial taste in some cases.
- Gummies - Gummies are the perfect middle ground between powder and eating mushrooms in cooked recipes. They're flavorful, jam-packed with nutrients, and easy to take on the go. Additionally, they require zero prep time.
Overall, each of these strategies have their place. You don't have to pick one or the other, but few have the time or commitment to keep two or even three options open for the nutritional support of mushrooms. However, once you're familiar with all the support they offer, it's hard to turn them down.
Targeted Areas of Support With Functional Mushrooms
Athletes are particularly fond of this support when it comes to getting a consistent functional mushroom intake. The overall antioxidant and immune system support that functional mushrooms offer can keep your body clean and healthy for exercise recovery, but it also helps with avoiding fatigue.
Cordyceps, for example, is a great source for this support. Oxygen regulation in the body is supported heavily with these mushrooms and expedite your cool down time when you're finishing a long workout.
Sleeping well just never seems to come easily. Fortunately, adaptogenic mushrooms have many of those muscle relievers and tension reducing support ingredients we look for. This could help you get to sleep more quickly, as well as have more restful sleep.
At Troomy, we combined Reishi mushrooms with Melatonin, creating strong sleep habit support through a reliable mushroom nootropic gummy. These gummies take the foundation of functional health and support better sleep habits for restful nights that lead into better mornings.
Focus and Brain Function
Focusing at home or in the workplace can make or break a project. Depending on what you do to get yourself in the right mindset for strong productivity, adaptogenic mushrooms can be a great additional piece that makes that effort more consistent.
On top of better focus, most adaptogenic mushrooms have strong natural properties for supporting your brain health. This can be great for avoiding feeling slow in the morning, but more importantly, working in other good habits to be more productive.
Other Strategies for Improving Mornings Outside of Functional Mushrooms
As the most important meal of the day, you have to get quality meals out of your breakfast. That means proteins, fruits, veggies, anything you can pack into a quality, well-rounded meal.
Yoga and Meditation
Meditation in the morning is a fantastic way to start your day off right. You can quickly settle down and prepare mentally for the day ahead. As you calm and sooth your mind, Calm is our perfect pairing mushroom blend that can support relieving nerves and anxiety.
Whatever motivates you or gets your spark lit, you've gotta be able to get motivated in the morning. Many people find this through music, motivational speakers, prayer, and more.
With these strategies in place combined with functional support from adaptogenic mushrooms, your mornings should move more quickly, feel easier to get started, and cause less stress. Being on your A-game from the get-go can completely reshape what you're capable of in a day. Luckily, it's easier than ever to get started.
