What are Adaptogenic Mushrooms?

Adaptogenic mushrooms, also known as "functional" mushrooms, are nutrient-rich species of fungi that support daily values. However, as leading superfoods, you aren't going to find adaptogenic mushrooms often in your average grocery store. 

Are These Mushrooms "Magic?"

No, adaptogenic mushrooms aren't magic. They are support-driven additions to your eating habits that have zero hallucinogenic properties. However, they are heavy in nutritional value.

Are They Safe?

Of course! Higher doses suggest that they're still safe, though there's always a chance of an allergic reaction. In turn, they can help with supporting your immune system, relieving inflammation, and more. 

The trick is just to find a great combination of adaptogenic mushrooms around Lion's Mane to complement it perfectly.

Common Adaptogenic Mushroom Species

Cordyceps: Cordyceps has risen in popularity a ton recently. They are primarily used to target anti-aging properties, heart health, boosted exercise performance, type 2 diabetes support, and more. 

Reishi: Reishi's been a little lesser known in recent past. While it might look like a bear claw donut if you saw it out in the wild, it's actually a strong support for sleep habits and keeping the body calm when at rest. Most of us today have a great deal of trouble getting consistent, restful sleep, which hurts our productivity a great deal.

Lion's Mane: Lion's Mane is a leading species of the adaptogenic variety to support your daily values fast. It primarily is used to support focus and immune system boosting, but can be highly-concentrated into supplement blends to get even more daily suport.

With our team at Troomy, we've studied this species of mushroom heavily to get the most out of it when we blend it into our gummies. Over the past year, we've taken those blends and turned Lion's Mane into an accessible adaptogenic mushroom with a tropical fruity flavor.

Are Adaptogenic Mushrooms Expensive?

This will come down to how you're aiming to work adaptogenic mushrooms like Lion's Mane into your diet. If you just want to have them occasionally, they shouldn't be a huge impairment to your budgeting. You can grab a few online and put them in a meal here and there. However, if you want to get real support and feel a difference with these mushrooms, getting consistent with them will make a huge difference.

Here's a few ways to get started with Lion's Mane and other adaptogenic mushrooms.

Raw Mushrooms

This is often the most expensive route. Given that raw mushrooms will usually not pop up in the grocery store, you'll have to find them online. Additionally, getting the best value for them will force you to buy in bulk. Bulk mushrooms can add up quickly.

On top of that, the shelf life is limited, so you'll have to be on your A-game to avoid losing money. However, if you get a consistent routine going here, you'll be able to really enjoy these mushrooms as a steady portion of your meal planning.

Mushroom Powder Supplements

Powder supplements make everything easier. Whether you're looking to just get a couple of adaptogenic mushrooms into your diet or a bunch, powder supplements keep these values accessible and on the shelf for longer. Also, that adds to the long-term value of the mushrooms.

Although, this still takes a bit of prep and can have a bitter taste in some cases. Powder supplements are really hit and miss depending on the flavor you get, the concentration of the powder, and other factors. Be mindful of what you're aiming for and how mushrooms can best be suited in a supplement form before you pull the trigger on powder supplements.

Mushroom Gummies

Overall, this is the best of both worlds for most people looking to get the most out of adaptogenic mushrooms quickly. They have a wealth of benefits in comparison to mushroom coffees, supplements, or just picking up fresh mushrooms from the store.

Shelf Life: Mushroom gummies have a really strong shelf life. You can keep them on your desk or in your bathroom cabinets for months at a time, never having to keep bulky, expensive raw mushrooms on hand.

Zero Prep Time: On top of how long they last, they're exceptionally good for their ease of access. You don't have to worry about cooking gummies or finding the right textures for your meals. This also doesn't cut into your daily routine. If you're a person often on the go, having time for yourself is a struggle. You don't want to spend extra time preparing mushrooms as a separate part of the dinner plan. Keep your prep time at zero with mushroom gummies.

Strong Nutritional Support: The nutritional foundation of adaptogenic mushrooms are perfect for improving your daily routine, and that isn't lost in a gummy. Mushroom gummies are both delicious and jam-packed with those same vitamins you'd get in a raw mushroom from the grocery store.

Fruity Flavors: One of the major drawbacks we've touched on is the texture and taste of raw mushrooms. While you can cook them and mix them up with creamy sauces and chicken recipes, it's a lot easier to just grab a tropically-flavored gummy. Keep your health and wellness routine tasty using mushroom gummies.
