Inspired by deep forest wild-crafting, this amazing mushroom-cacao blend delivers richly on both taste and plant medicine. Similar to a smooth Colombian in taste profile, with notes of red apple, homemade caramel and Seville orange with a lingering treacle finish.
You may have noticed that mushrooms —or fungi — are getting a lot of attention these days, and for good reason. They are among the most studied plant medicines in the herbal pharmacopeia because of their seeming super-powers. From seriously boosting immune health, to both combating and preventing cancer, to reducing systemic inflammation, to regenerating both nerve and neural tissues, to helping restore entire ecosystems—mushrooms are, quite simply, extraordinary.
The mushrooms in this blend are - Chaga, Lions mane, and Red Reishi.
Studies on lions mane demonstrate the mushroom can assist with mental focus, knowledge retention, memory recall, and can even help treat degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s by stimulating nerve growth factor (NGF). NGF aids the regeneration and growth of neurons. Consuming lionsmane on a consistent basis is shown to support brain health, help ease anxiety and depression, increase cognitive function, and to help protect against neurological disease and decline.
In Asia, red reishi as been regarded as the king of plant medicines for millennia, as it has a powerful tonifying effect upon the entire body and mind. It is revered as a premier longevity tonic in Chinese Medicine, used to restore flagging vitality. Studies on reishi show that regular consumption can improve adrenal health and combat chronic fatigue, decrease stress and anxiety levels, reduce pain, protect the liver, and improve the health of the nerves, brain, liver, and lungs. If this is not enough, reishi has been studied extensively as both a treatment and preventative medicine for cancer, as compounds in reishi may be cytotoxic to cancer cells, thus preventing their growth and spread.
Extensive studies of chaga mushroom show the mushroom’s ability to reduce inflammation, boost the immune system, relieve pain, increase stamina and reduce fatigue, and act as a powerful antioxidant.
