What are Functional Mushrooms?

These aren't your average portobellos or cremini mushrooms. While those are good for cooking, functional mushrooms can do a whole lot more than garnish your pizza.

What are functional mushrooms good for?

They can be good for all kinds of things depending on the mushrooms you get. For example, if you have trouble sleeping, you might want to try Reishi mushrooms. These are linked to supporting better, more restful sleep, while also relaxing the body from stressors and inflammation. Having these mushrooms on hand can be a game-changer for your sleep habits. 

Are they safe?

Yes! Functional mushrooms are entirely safe for you to to take on a regular basis. Especially in nootropic form, they actually just add a ton of nutrients and vitamins to your diet quickly with zero crash or hallucinogenic properties.

In other words, you feeling better and being more productive is the only "magic" at play. You won't start seeing the world flip upside down or anything. 

Where can I Find Them?

The average grocery store isn't going to carry many of them. You'd have to usually find a public market to carry them fresh. Lion's Mane, for example, has a shelf life you have to careful with when you're using it as a supplement or when cooking with it. 

The best bang for your buck will either be buying online in bulk then preparing around the shelf life of your mushrooms, or using supplements instead that have been extracted with the mushrooms' nutrients.

Using Functional Mushrooms on Vacation for Daily Support

Stamina/Endurance Builders

Say you're in for a vacation that has a ton of walking, like a trip to Disney World, for example. Getting a little extra boost beyond coffee and painkillers is going to be vital for you to be on your a-game for the whole trip. Functional mushrooms like Lion's Mane or Cordyceps are perfect for making that happen.

Immune Support

When you put yourself through all kinds of new activities in a new country or environment, chances are your immune system is going to struggle.

Supporting Lower Cholesterol

Eating well is tough enough, especially on vacation. You definitely are going to want to keep your cholesterol in check with the extra sugar and carbs that you'll be having.

How Can I Try Functional Mushrooms on Vacation?


Most don't cook on vacation, but this is always an option. Even if the local grocery stores don't have them, you can buy functional mushrooms online to add into your freshest recipes. Additionally, there are entirely plant-based recipes you can find online. These are generally high in nutrients, fun flavors, and something completely new to your palette.

However, it's tough keeping fresh mushrooms on the shelf if you only buy online. Especially if you want to avoid cooking, this might not be the best option for a vacation meal plan where you want to do less work than usual.

Powder Supplements

These are much easier to transport and can be fun for a little alternative to coffee. Blends target different needs, and are easy to get started with. Also, they often have a ton of different targeted benefits. 

The thing is: you're still going to have to have some prep here, and the flavors can really be hit or mess. Unless you plan on adding a bunch of sugary sweeteners and other additions to the blend, chances are they're not going to taste great. You shouldn't have to force something down on vacation. That's where mushroom gummies can be the perfect alternative.
