Most mushroom coffee incorporates wild mushrooms that aren’t easily found in your grocery store — usually a combination of reishi, cordyceps, lion’s mane and chaga mushrooms. All claim to have different associated benefits, which is why they typically undergo a spray-dried extraction to produce a concentrated, optimal blend. Mushroom coffee starts with high-quality Arabica coffee the same coffee you know and love. However, it also includes medicinal mushroom extracts. These aren’t your standard white.

Please do not try to recreate this beverage on your own. Leave it to the professionals to add in medicinal mushroom extract vs. culinary mushrooms. Mushroom coffee is a drink that is.

The extract powder of mushrooms, which are blended with organic instant coffee, comes from a variety of mushrooms which are known to be effective in diabetes and in cutting down the risk of cancer. “Mushroom coffee is regular coffee blended with medicinal mushroom extracts,” says Jessica Ivey, R.D.N. “The extract is made by spray-drying key components of the mushrooms. Adding mushroom powders to your smoothies or swapping your regular coffee for mushroom coffee, he says, are “ways of diversifying your diet.” At a most basic level, mushrooms.

Mushrooms’ earthy flavor complements bold, roasted coffee beans, providing a smoother flavor as well as high levels of antioxidants and other compounds that may enhance your focus and thinking capabilities. The term applies to certain types of mushrooms that are used for their medicinal benefits in a variety of food and health products, from bottled drinks, coffee, and smoothies to soups, desserts, and even skin and hair products. Medicinal mushrooms are powerful, if you know how to use them.

  • WARNING WARNING Dumb video and misleading title. Do not watch! This only talks briefly as in one sentence, that on the website of Four Sigmatic it mentions that it can improve brain function, and literally the rest of the video is some goofy guy trying to be cool and his co workers talking about the taste of it.

  • It’s coffee. Just coffee.

    Maybe there are some benefits with the mushrooms but it sounds very hokey to me and overstated. I’ve been listening to these types of claims, for different products, for decades and they almost always turn out to be nonsense marketing.

  • So I guess the answer was “no, it does not increase productivity but does increase silliness and also it tastes terrible and costs too much….”

  • I think this might be one of the worst “reviews” I’ve ever seen. I appreciate the fact that it is not actually a review, but you fail to factor in the only reason people would ever buy this coffee. For it’s effects, not the taste.

  • So no mention of how it affected productivity?
    ‘Hey I bought this pill that is supposed to give me super powers and I think it tasted pretty good.’

  • its not many times I’m surprized but this video certainly made me say wow but have you looked at the site called gregs mushroom grower look for it on google

  • I actually like the taste of the coffee so much so I didn’t have to add anything to it. Aside from that it works, I found myself more alert and ready for my day without the jitters. Keep in mind I just had a baby 3months ago so I’m waking up multiple times during the night.

  • What the hell is this bullshit? The fucking coffee is made for cognitive effects only. You think people buying it are drinking it for the taste? You mention Tim Ferris and yet you’re oblivious to why he uses it, do you know who he is? Are you dumb? Is this the level intelligence needed to be a journalist these days?

  • I tried it. Definitely works to make you think a bit faster and more clearly. I noticed (as did my hubby) that colors were more “saturated.” We put Lion’s Mane tincture in our coffee every day now. The taste of the foursigmatic is obviously not the big draw, but it’s not bad. Try it, you might like it!

  • I’ve been using their product for a number of years and am quite happy with it. I’m a huge believer in the health benefits of mushrooms and find that I stay quite healthy using these products. I also make my own mushroom tinctures. Worth trying.

  • If i drink reishi at night i sometimes sleep well n dont always know till i wake up n sometimes i dont sleep well or ling. Oh well it is whatever it is. Cheers!!!

  • Four sigmatic rules not all storwz have it or all priducts n bummer some stores want sky friggin high prices for it. I live it!!!!

  • all I want to say is, I haven’t tried the Four Sigmatic thing myself, was just looking for a review not a list of “Google Search” on the ingredients they have in their coffee and a 20 minute “sh*talk* about something you have given a go yourself. It seemed like you’ve made up your mind even before making this video or doing any real research like actually contacting a lab or something like that. Thank you.

  • I bought this coffee and as expensive as it was, the blend tasted like coffee, not like mushroom. The energy I get from the morning blend is super for starting up in the mornings. I’m a daily coffee drinker and above all, your criticisms just demonstrate that you haven’t had the coffee. I made it half way through and didn’t hear anything about four sigmatic putting nutritionists and doctors at the forefront of specializing these recipes to optimize user benefits. I think you could get more information from talking with someone at the company and address these questions you have directly, you won’t be disappointed and may come to the mushroom side after all. Do it for your health! You deserve it.

  • I know people who go to a certain coffee shop daily… So in that case, the $3.80/$114 a month for two cups of coffee daily would be a deal 😉

  • Truth is most of the shit we do is not really backed by evidence because most trial runs are all estimating the results. So if you think it works for you do it. If not then don’t. Everyone is different.

  • I noticed that your coffee video isn’t up anymore. I’m guessing because there were some inaccuracies. Is there any chance you can update the video and add like regular vs decaf and/or coffee vs tea?

  • Leading mycologist Paul Stamets is the authority here and he says they’re medicinal. I’m gonna side with him over some youtube bint, however, Four Sigmatic do appear to be capitalists, not scientists and are just riding the trend, likely with lower doses and inferior quality/less researched ingredients.

  • They say “support” because the FDA does not allow supplement companies to state anything other than supporting the structure and function of the body. It is illegal to talk about a supplement improving, curing, healing, or preventing anything. Look into DSHEA (Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act) of 1994 if you want more info.

  • Her biased review is futile wow. I Don’t recommend taking her word for it reviews should be unbiased and thorough not just your opinions based on reference of their description and info. At least try it if you want to provide a good review. Smh

  • Literally all they need to do is brew a cup of coffee and stick a pH stick in it to substantiate that claim, but speculation is much more convenient
