Supercharged, Superfoods for Boosting Daily Function

Never thought your friends would be micro-dosing on medicinal mushrooms every day, huh?

Well, that's the reality of medicinal mushroom-use today. Now, when quantifying a mushroom as "medicinal," there isn't some metric the mushroom has to hit. It actually just comes down to the genetic makeup of the fungus, and what health benefits it has the potential to offer.
Today, there are a handful of the top-performing mushrooms in medicinal use for daily health, which includes:

To give these mushrooms a try, it used to be hard to find them in the grocery store or even online. Fortunately, it's a whole lot easier today with all the medicinal mushrooms you can find online or in local shops. They're used in extract form through powders, coffees, teas, gummies, and more.

But what really sets them apart as daily supplements? Are they just like other nutritional supplements, or do they actually help you get more done every day?

Medicinal Mushroom Characteristics

In order to be considered medicinal, there have to be "functional" values that the mushroom supports. Take sleep habits, for example. While reishi mushrooms are a fantastic route to get vitamins and minerals in your diet, they're an even better way to offer muscle relaxer support as a daily stress reliever that only uses natural ingredients, and provides a sense of calm perfect for boosting sleep habits to be more effective.

This generates a more restful sleep regiment, which makes your whole routine that much healthier overall. While it isn't a perfect science, these mushrooms have actually been used in eastern cultures for thousands of years. After only recently making their way west, they're finally being recognized in health and wellness communities for their daily benefits.

Today, medicinal mushrooms have become widely popular in supplement and nootropic form. They expedite the process of using medicinal mushrooms raw, and instead offer the value of mushroom extract in tinctures, gummies, powders, coffees, and more.

Stronger Immune Function

Most nootropic blends are great for the immune system. When it comes to mushrooms like lion's mane and chaga, these fungi are no different. The polysaccharides foundation of each mushroom's makeup supports much stronger immune function, driven through higher proteins and quality cell activation. This can make getting through flu season a whole lot easier, and also elevate the way your body prepares for future sicknesses and keeps them at bay.


Inflammation impacts all of our daily lives in sickness, disease, and all sorts of ailments. While some inflammation is a healthy and understandable response, you have to be able to corral it and proactively prevent it from getting out of hand. Luckily, medicinal mushrooms offer a simplified, quick route to reducing inflammation and supporting your body from avoiding it in the future.

With each medicinal mushroom, you're offering your neural pathways and the rest of the body a premier route to communicate, making your body's reaction to ailments faster acting, your ability to recover from mental fatigue simpler, and just getting through the day overall a whole lot easier.

How Can I Try Medicinal Mushrooms?

Raw Mushrooms

Raw mushrooms are a fine place to start. In their purest form, they can be particularly effective in boosting your health.

The tough part with raw mushrooms is the prep time. You'll have to find recipes you like and can easily work into your usual cooking routine. For most folks, this steers them towards different mushroom supplements. Take mushroom powders, for example.

Mushroom Powders

Medicinal mushroom powder is a fantastic alternative to raw mushrooms for ease of access, customizability, and added organic ingredients. They often are highly-consolidated forms of high-milligram mushroom blends that are great for your overall health, and keep you feeling your best for longer through those tough days ahead.

Unfortunately, it can be messy at times. Especially if you're in a rush, pouring powders into your morning shake or pasta for lunch isn't always the best route to get nutritional support. This leaves us with mushroom gummies.

Mushroom Gummies

Overall, mushroom gummies are a great route to go for mushroom support. They expedite getting the nutrients you need, stay on the healthier side with organic ingredients, and offer delicious flavors. On top of being the easiest supplements, there are a handful of additional benefits as well.

What Sets Mushroom Gummies Apart?


Caffeine is in almost every supplement today. Energy drinks, coffee, pre-workout, going caffeine-free on anything might feel impossible at times. Luckily, mushroom gummies are a way around that.

You can get the same quality energy support you're looking for with non of the added caffeine, and stay on track with your diet choices as well.

Delicious Flavors

Flavor can make a huge difference in how you take supplements through the day. If you're never looking forward to taking your supplements or just dread the aftertaste of a medicine-like tincture or powder, organic-ingredient powered mushroom gummies are the way to go. You get a natural, delicious flavor like lemon lime in Boost, and still get all the added benefits of medicinal mushrooms like cordyceps. 

Organic Ingredients with Fair Value

Organic ingredients make any supplement just a touch better in terms of quality, daily nutritional value, and results. The toughest part is finding a supplement that keeps your wallet happy too.
