Cordyceps Mushrooms: A Natural Alternative to Energy Drinks

Cordyceps Mushrooms: A Natural Alternative to Energy Drinks

Energy drinks have become a propellent of most folks daily routines in the workplace. Especially for working long hours, 

While they might be a good short term solution, the long term is going to face major detriments in your overall sense of energy, jitters, sleep habits, and more. For the majority of folks, a natural alternative just hasn't been available to them that really creates an impact. Coffee might be losing its punch, sugary foods are never a good option, and vitamins can only do so much when you're taking targeted capsules/blends for multivitamin use. Enter cordyceps mushrooms.

Cordyceps mushrooms are versatile daily supplement options that are highly impactful for supporting better energy, focus, moods, and more. At Troomy, we prioritize this relationship to help build a highly impactful daily routine that gets the most out of your usual habits, and give you organically-powered alternatives to coffee, energy drinks, and sodas.

Today, we'll take a quick overview of how mushrooms can support better daily wellness, which one's the best for supporting energy, and how energy drinks compare.

Are Energy Drinks Actually BAD for You?

While they aren't explicitly bad for you, they can be detrimental to your health when you don't use them in moderation. For example, having one in a pinch or exercising a bit of regulation in the times you rely on them/work them into your diet might not be all that bad, but developing dependance on the high sugars, excess caffeine, and crazy flavors can be extremely harmful to your body.

Additionally, zero-sugar options might even be worse in some cases, which is where many of us have turned to alternatives.

What are Cordyceps?

Cordyceps are one of the most internationally accessible and beneficial medicinal mushroom on the market today. In supplement form and raw form, folks all over the planet have used cordyceps for its supported healing properties, impact on daily wellness, and natural empowerment of daily energy.

This roots in the vitamin and mineral-based compounds that cordyceps possess, which include polysaccharides, proteins, sterols, and more. When regularly consumed, they can be completely health-conscious alternatives to your morning energy drink or soda. In fact, there's a handful of areas that they set themselves apart even just as raw mushrooms, let alone in concentrated-supplement form.

Cordyceps as an Energy Drink Alternative

Zero Caffeine, Still Boosting Energy

Caffeine is what can ruin many, many supplements you might try through the day or get in your usual energy drink. Blaster with sugar and overwhelming the body, there's no good sense of "moderation" you can really use with energy drinks. With medicinal mushrooms like cordyceps, you empower a better sense of natural energy seamlessly, and can instantly increase your daily vitamin values while you're at it. Together, these combines for an energized day with none of the harm that caffeine can develop with dependency.

Increased Fitness Output, No Strange Ingredients

For the most part, the majority of blends of mushrooms in supplements or just with the raw mushrooms themselves will have zero dangerous or strange additives. At Troomy, we use organic ingredients that combine with cordyceps to offer little to no side effects, aside from the occasional allergic reaction (nausea, upset stomach, rash, etc.) observed in practice. 

This offers a clean and consistent route to use cordyceps as a "preworkout" lift up after you're off work, out of school, or leaving the house. As the cordyceps mushroom activates in the body, you'll have better regulation of muscle growth, performance, and overall energy when exercising regularly alongside your mushroom use.

Promotes Endurance, Keeps Cardiovascular System Strong

Staying energized for longer workouts and keeping your body at peak performance will largely start in your diet, sleep, and conditioning with exercise. As you improve your body's ability to regulate oxygen with consistent cordyceps support, your cardiovascular health can link to improved blood pressure, better blood sugar control, and other similar factors.

Safe Fatigue Regulation

Regulating fatigue is a huge part of getting through your workout and keeping your body at its best for daily activity. If you're able to give your body the nutrients it needs regularly through foods like cordyceps, the way your body recovers through sleep and the morning after with achy muscles/joint can see a huge boost in support.

Some superfoods outside of mushrooms are used for these naturally energizing blends as well, but nothing beats fungi like cordyceps, chaga, reishi, and lion's mane. Luckily, these are a lot easier to find today than in years past.

How Can I Try Cordyceps?

Cordyceps has become a lot more accessible today than it was even 10 years ago. Now, you can try cordyceps in a variety of powders, coffees, capsules, and gummies, and more. 

Still, they've been well documented and studied for several hundred years now in traditional Chinese medicine. Only recently have they made their way west, and we're finally catching up to all the healing properties they've been closely associated with. As they become more widely accessible, more and more folks have been exposed to the health-driven benefits of regular-mushroom use.

What Makes Mushroom Gummies GREAT Outside of Being an Energy Drink Alternative?

Medicinal mushroom-powered gummies are a unique, healthy, and conscious way to support your daily energy. They utilize cordyceps in a low sugar, delicious lemon-lime flavored blast of gelatin-free goodness that's good for plant-based diets and carnivorous diets alike.

Additionally, cordyceps offers a wealth of daily health benefits you can take advantage of with mushroom gummies.

Health Benefits of Cordyceps Compared to Energy Drinks

Natural Energy, No Crash

Getting up, staying on track with activity, and regulating physical stress on the body from the day before can take a lot out of you. Looking to energy drinks is a common quick fix, but what happens when you crash after just a few hours? How's the rest of the day really going to go?

For those of that workout often, have mentally demanding days at work or at home, students that are studying late for a big exam, or anything in between, cordyceps is a fantastic energy drink alternative for better natural energy to get you through it all. These fantastic fungi use zero sugar, caffeine, or other additives to boost the power you're capable of exerting, and are fantastic for getting you back on track quickly with a more energetic day ahead.

Optimally Powered Focus, Mood Support

Your mood drastically can impair or improve how much you get done in a given day, while your cognitive function and performance has to be regulated through diet, sleep, and the supplements you use to target it directly.

Cordyceps has been linked through numerous studies being great for relieving brain fog, improving mental clarity, and keeping your mood regulated with ease. Adrenal glands are where this process starts, as well as the central nervous system's ability to release energy effectively to power a more focused mind with a better attitude.

Heart Health Support, Decreased Risk of Heart Disease

Getting your cardiovascular system in order's highly beneficial for your overall well being long term. You can put yourself at lower risk of heart disease, autoimmune diseases, and other frustrating ailments to deal with. 

With the vitamins in an average serving of cordyceps, as well as increasing your Vo2 max which regulates oxygen throughout the body, energy drinks are non-comparable to mushroom wellness. Blood flow also improves through the regulation that cordyceps increases throughout high intensity workouts, as well as normal daily function.

Anti-Aging Properties

Anti-aging is a great way to keep the skin clear, wrinkles and fine lines reduced, and your overall body's natural glow at its peak. The majority of anti-aging focused supplements can have varying effects depending on the way the body responds, which often deters folks from using anti-aging supplements more regularly. 

While cordyceps won't be a picture-perfect, overnight sensation for your skin, it's a good place to start with helping the body out as an alternative to the vitamins and minerals some energy drinks offer.

Immunity Boosts

While you might not be targeting immunity with most energy blends you use in coffee or energy drinks, it's a great added bonus from mushrooms like cordyceps. You can seamlessly work in vitamins and minerals that are powerful for keeping down the common cold, easing off allergies, and other light symptoms that can just make the day a bit tougher.

Together, each of these benefits can be highly impactful to daily function in the weight room, workplace, classroom, or life at home. Fortunately, it's easier than ever to try them today.
