Mushrooms for Sleeping

Mushrooms for Sleeping

Sleeping well can reshape your entire life.

 From the jump, you can tell when you just didn't get enough sleep. Everything feels a bit slower, you aren't as productive, and it's hard to stay on track with work.

Don't worry! It doesn't have to stay that way. We've all been there, especially our team at Troomy. That's why we started our mission to reshape the daily routine with mushroom nootropics, starting with sleep.

Here's what we found on our journey to making the first line of five Troomy adaptogenic mushroom blends, including Daily, Sleep, Focus, Boost, and Calm.

What are Adaptogenic Mushrooms?

Adaptogenic mushrooms can be a major asset to your healthy development in good sleep habits. The primary ways that they are different from your average mushroom is the nutrient volume and how highly concentrated they are as super foods. They also can be referred to as "functional" mushrooms because of the foundational support they can create in your immune system, exercise recovery, focus, and more. 

With 14,000 species of mushrooms discovered today, it really comes down to what you're looking for in healthy support. While you can try gummies, powders, or just cooking adaptogenic mushrooms raw, they all have their own place in your diet if you're looking to get quick support.

Where Can I Find Them?

The majority aren't going to be found at your average grocery store. Buying online can let you grow your own or just grab a few pieces ready to go. However, buying today, you might not know which one you're looking for. There are several impactful adaptogenic mushrooms you can try today.


Red Reishi Mushrooms - Troomy Nootropics in Whittier, CA

Reishi Mushrooms for Sleep

Reishi mushrooms are a great place to start. Reishi supports better sleeping habits through natural nutrients and a more consistent sleep cycle. When paired with good habits around bedtime, you're going to see a real quality shift in the way that you get "restful" sleep. It doesn't act as a sedative, but more so as a natural way to wind down when your body has been tensed up.

Reishi is tougher to find in the average store, but you can certainly get supplements and nootropics for it easily to go straight into your sleep habits.

Cordyceps Mushrooms - Adaptogenic Mushrooms from Troomy in Whittier, CA

Cordyceps Mushrooms for Energy

Cordyceps are foundational energy boosters with strong nutritional value. They utilize vitamins and minerals like B1, B2, B12, amino acids, proteins, and more to keep you on your A-game for longer periods of time.

Cordyceps don't tie directly into sleep habits, but they impact a large portion of the body's function throughout the day. Luckily with these, there's a huge variety in how you can add them to your day with gummies, powders, and raw mushrooms. For the most part, this is one of the most popular adaptogenic mushrooms used today.

How Can I Create Good Sleep Habits Around Adaptogenic Mushrooms?

Wind Down Time

Winding down for the night is an essential element of your day that most folks don't take the time to adequately complete. You need to be able to set yourself apart from your stress, have strong nutrition, and just find natural ways to relax.

Winding down can be especially hard in loud, crowded environments. That's where adaptogenic mushrooms can really be a major support. As the vitamins and minerals in Reishi and other mushrooms activate inside the body, you can naturally return to rest with support more frequently, especially in tougher environments for winding down.

Yoga and Meditation

Yoga and meditation are fantastic relaxers for the body. They naturally keep your body at rest with more natural energy, while also decompressing stress fluidly from the day.

Screen Time - Cutting Down Screen Time for Restful Sleep - Troomy Nootropics in Whittier, CA

Minimize Screen Time

When you're aiming for a more relaxed mental state entering the evening, you have to be able to get past using your screens too much. Screens heavily stimulate the brain and make it very difficult to relax.

When you're popping mushroom gummies, powders, or having them with your dinner, take that as a good time to cut down on the screen time for the rest of the night. While it might be early to do so after dinner, it's an effective effort you should consider taking.

Nutritional Factors Impacting Sleep Outside of Adaptogenic Mushrooms

Meal Planning - Troomy Nootropics in Whittier, CA Adaptogenic Mushrooms

 Meal Planning

When you have a veggie, starch, and protein in place for every meal, sleeping gets easier than ever. On top of that, planning out your meals is a fantastic route to having a more productive day around adaptogenic mushrooms. These mushrooms can quickly be added to the meal plan for the week with a variety of recipes using them in breakfasts, dinners, and desserts.

Daily Values

Being mindful of your daily values is crucial as well. When your body isn't getting the necessary nutrients it should be getting, you're going to have trouble with being irritable, poor problem solving, low productivity, and other damaging factors to your daily routine.

Mushroom nootropics are a fantastic route to supplement that routine of getting daily values. For example, if you're looking to get adaptogenic mushrooms into your day for a handful of vitamins that your doctor told you to get more of, getting started is simple.

You can pick out the perfect adaptogenic mushroom pairing in a gummy or powder form. Then, it can become a daily, weekily, or bi-weekly supplement that keeps you going without a hitch.

Mushroom Gummies

As we've lightly touched on before, mushroom gummies are a rising new star that athletes are working into their routines, and office warriors are working into their daily workflow.

Mushroom gummies offer the same support as raw mushrooms, with the enhancement of being:

  • Tangy and flavorful
  • Wallet friendly
  • Easily accessible
  • Shelf safe

On top of these primary points, you can use the gummies that only suit your needs instead of buying a variety of mushrooms that might help you. These powerful five blends we've created are the lifeblood of what make adaptogenic mushrooms great today, and we're excited to share them with you.
