Mushroom Energy Support: Your 2023 Alternative to Coffee and Caffeine

Mushroom Energy Support: Your 2023 Alternative to Coffee and Caffeine

Are All Mushrooms Caffeine-Free?

With mushrooms all over the coffee industry today, it's reasonable to think there might be a bit of caffeine in select fungi species. Instead, mushrooms can offer similar benefits to caffeine for boosting your energy up without actually having caffeine in them. These natural superfoods can be the perfect addition to your diet just in time for a deadline, while also offering the cleanest dietary support as well, through: strong vitamins, proteins, and minerals.

Now, not every supplement is the perfect alternative to caffeine or coffee to boost your energy. Usually, folks would have to run through a few powders, capsules, or tinctures to get quality energy support without caffeine. Fortunately for us, medicinal mushrooms have energy-boosting properties that can make them a quality alternative to caffeine today. 

At Troomy, we prioritize the relationship between mushrooms and daily values to offer a complete arrangement of mushroom-powered wellness to suit different needs. Cordyceps, for example, goes into our Boost blend to support raw energy, while Focus uses the power of lion's mane mushroom to elevate productivity and keep you task through the day.

Mushrooms as a Caffeine Substitute

While they may not have caffeine naturally, there are a handful of different fungi species that are perfect for providing natural energy. The same way caffeine activates in the body, the raw power of mushroom vitamins, minerals, and protein jam packed into one globally recognized superfood.

What are Medicinal Mushrooms?

Medicinal mushrooms are the best of the best when it comes to the various mushroom species available today, and don't necessarily meet a quantifiable threshold (vitamin count, proteins, etc.), but they do have to offer some kind of functional value

This functional value could include:

  • Improving sleep habits
  • Boosting energy
  • Regulating moods
  • Relieving stress

Together, each of these elements can be targeted separately depending on which mushrooms you try. When you work them into make them routine support, they can be complete game-changers for your body and mind.

Are They Safe?

Yep! Medicinal mushrooms have zero hallucinogenic properties active in them. This allows you to get daily support with vitamins, proteins, and minerals without the risk of tripping out or not feeling your best.

However, there are some minor side effects that have been observed with regularly supplementing mushrooms into your routine.

Health Benefits of Mushrooms vs Coffee

Inflammation Response

Your body's response to inflammation will make a world of difference in how quickly infections can develop, as well as how the body reacts to preventing life-threatening diseases like cancer or heart disease. With mushroom support, you can offer your body the necessary nutrients it needs for proper inflammatory responses that don't cause significant swelling or redness.


While coffee is great for antioxidants, mushrooms are too. Most mushrooms you'll try from the grocery store will be high in either glutathione or ergothioneine, which are perfect antioxidants for regulating oxidative stress / free radicals for better body wellness.

Energy-Strengthening Vitamins

For the most part, vitamins are where energy really roots through supplement offerings. Vitamin B, which is a huge part of most mushrooms' compositions, is one of the "leaders in the clubhouse" for elevating energy quickly. As you start to work in mushrooms like shiitake, lion's mane, and other vitamin-heavy fungi, you can start to expect your energy to naturally improve and regulate. 


Building up a strong immune system doesn't happen overnight, and it isn't always the easiest portion of your self care you can target. With mushroom support for better immunity, your best bets might be:

  • Reishi
  • Lion's Mane
  • Turkey Tail

Instead, if you're looking more for strictly energy support, cordyceps is the way to go. It's actually become a widely popular alternative to coffee in a variety of different supplement forms.
