Why Adding Mushrooms to Your Coffee is a Game Changer

Why Adding Mushrooms to Your Coffee is a Game Changer

Butter, salt, eggs, collagen powder -- people have been adding extras to their morning cup of coffee for ages. But mushrooms? If you’re picturing a white button mushroom bobbing in your favorite mug, think again.

Mushrooms are on many people’s “Top 10 Most Hated Foods” lists. So, it’s no surprise that most people couldn’t imagine adding mushrooms to their coffee (or tea or smoothies). However, mushrooms are packed full of antioxidants, beta-glucans, fiber, polyphenols and other properties that can make a real and positive difference in your well-being.

Discover the magic of mushroom powder 

If you're part of the mushroom-hating club, fear not! We're not suggesting you eat a single mushroom. In fact, with powdered mushroom blends, you'll hardly even notice you're anywhere near a mushroom. But your body will certainly thank you

Why Mushroom Powder?

While there have been limited clinical studies on the health effects of mushroom powder, the promising results are leading to increased interest and additional attention. Initial studies appear to support the fact that mushroom powder offers a positive immune response.

As studies continue, people who enjoy a scoop or two of mushroom powder in their coffee, tea, soup or even sprinkled on their lunch report an improvement in gut health due to the increase in fiber and an energy boost due to the adaptogenic properties of mushrooms.

People hoping to feel better and get that little extra glow are giving mushroom powder a try and discovering the benefits.

Choosing the Right Mushroom supplement 

If something is missing and you’re looking for a boost, give mushroom powder a try. BUT, there are a lot of options out there, so it’s easy to fall down a rabbit hole trying to find the best supplement for you.

How to choose the right powdered mushroom supplement for you:

  1. Maximize Mushroom Variety: Opt for a blend that includes multiple mushroom types to maximize the benefits
  2. Avoid Preservatives and Fillers: Choose supplements free from unnecessary chemicals and additives.
  3. Source Matters: Pay attention to the origin of the mushrooms, ensuring they come from reputable sources with third-party verification.

  4. Prioritize Safety: Look for third-party verification for safety and quality to guarantee a neutral assessment.

  5. Go Organic: Organic mushrooms are not only environmentally friendly but also free from synthetic pesticides, ensuring nutrient density.

  6. Support U.S. Grown: Seek out supplements made from U.S.-grown mushrooms to support quality, sustainability, and safety.

It is extremely difficult to find mushroom supplements made from mushrooms grown in the United States. Most companies will claim it’s too expensive. Don’t believe them, what they really mean is the health and wellness of their customers isn’t worth investing in a U.S.-grown product. That’s why we created The Functionist.

The Functionist Difference 

We were on a quest for a safe, organic mushroom powder with a verified U.S. source but couldn't find one that fit the bill. So, we created it ourselves.

That’s right. We’re so obsessed with quality, sustainability, and safety that we sourced organic mushrooms in the United States and work with a third-party verification organization so you don’t just have to take our word for the claims we make.

Our mushroom blend is certified organic, certified B Corp, AND we even contribute at least one percent of our annual sales to environmental causes as proud members of One Percent for the Planet.

Best of all, organic mushroom blend from The Functionist makes us feel good so we put a scoop in our morning coffee. And in smoothies. And it’s really, really good in ramen.

Experience the goodness of our organic mushroom blend from The Functionist. It starts with one mushroom but can impact your entire body and the planet.
