MUSHROOM BLOG POST

Do you see “mushrooms” popping up everywhere? From mushroom coffee to lattes, these health promoting herbs are making their way into the mainstream.

At BochaSweet, we love to drink plenty of blended coffee, teas and lattes. What better way to supercharge our day than with a variety of potent mushroom extracts!

There are lots of different mushrooms out there, but there are 4 special adaptogenic mushrooms that stand out the most.

We went ahead and combined these mushrooms that you will soon learn about so that you can feel more vitality, less stress, mental clarity, natural energy, and more.

So, let’s get into it.

1. Cordyceps

These mushrooms are one of the most popular mushrooms out there.

Cordyceps first gained their claim to fame when the Chinese women’s track and field team broke multiple records in 1993.

Cordyceps are harvested in the high mountain regions of the Himalayas and used for centuries as food and medicine, dating back to the 15th century. The polysaccharides in cordyceps help to support immune function and energy production – ATP (adenosine triphosphate) – which combats stress.

From its ancient beginnings in traditional Chinese medicine, cordyceps has long been used as a highly treasured herb known for life-enhancing vitality by adapting to stress and for easy respiration as a “lung tonic”.

2. Shiitake

You can find these mushrooms easily at grocery store and make a great addition to any meal.

These mushrooms are rich in nutrition: high in B Vitamins, Vitamin D, potassium, zinc, and magnesium.

Shiitake mushrooms are a treasure from Asia that have been used for a long time as an adaptogen that can help the body deal with stress, and at the same time provide a boost to the immune system. It stimulates the body’s T-lymphocystes, these are specialized white blood cells that play a key role in the body’s defense against invading pathogens.

What is also unique about shiitake is that they contain all 8 essential amino acids as well as special fatty acid called linoleic acid.

3. Maitake

Maitake is a polypore mushroom known as the “hen of woods” that grows in clusters at the base of trees and also considered the “king of mushrooms” in Japan. It has been used in both Japan and China as both a food and tonic herb for thousands of years to help enhance immunity.

The beta-D-glucans found in maitake mushrooms help to boost the immune system.

4. Reishi

Reishi is another popular adaptogenic mushroom and are also known as ling zhi in Chinese. They are tied to longevity, better immune function, and mental clarity. They can be consumed as a tincture, tea, powder form, or in soup.

Reishi grows on hardwood trees and is considered one of nature’s most powerful immune-modulating herbs, and has been utilized for over 2,000 years in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Used for millennia in Asia, Reishi has been respectfully called the “mushroom of immortality”. Surprisingly, reishi mushrooms also have the potential to act as a detoxifying liver cleanse.

It is also underrated for its nootropic properties (enhance memory or other cognitive functions) which help boost mental performance and overall brain health.

“Yoga In A Bottle”

You may not be able to actually feel the positive effects of mushrooms to your health, but you can rest assured that they are doing their job.

So, it makes sense to include BochaSweet Mushroom Boost in your day-to-day life. Experience feeling more relaxed, more at ease, and less stress, almost like “yoga in a bottle”.
