Maybe you've heard of mushroom coffee by now. It's been around for decades, but has gained popularity in the last five years. But while this may sound like a fleeting trend, mushrooms have been used in Eastern medicine for thousands of years.
We trust these millennium-old reviews, and we know that mushrooms are here to stay. And with our sustainable practices, we're making sure the planet is here to stay too.
What Exactly Is Mushroom Coffee?
Simply, ground coffee beans + ground mushrooms. And to make your life even simpler - it's prepared just like regular coffee.
What about the taste?
Mushrooms pair perfectly with the bitterness of coffee. So you'll get a very similar taste to the coffee you know and love, with an added slight earthiness flavor.
Will it give me energy?
A cup of our mushroom coffee has almost exactly the same amount of caffeine of regular coffee (96.5%).
With one serving of Mushroom Coffee with Reishi, you'll still get a boost of energy. Plus, the mushrooms may be able to counteract some of the negative effects of coffee, like disturbed sleep patterns, anxiety, and digestion issues.
What Are The Health Benefits?
Every type of functional mushroom has its own distinct benefits. Reishi mushrooms can:
1) Combat Stress
Reishi is an adaptogen, meaning that it adapts to internal and external stresses. Adaptogens react to your unique body's needs and can bring you back towards equilibrium (where we all want to be).
2) Fight Fatigue
Adaptogens work when you have low energy, too. Reishi helps boost your energy levels when you're feeling sluggish or tired.
3) Provide Immune Support
Not a coffee fan?
Skip the coffee and go straight to the mushrooms. Mix Reishi Mushroom Powder into smoothies, baked goods, tea, and other hot drinks.
As with many alternative health products, clinical research is limited. Be sure to check with your physician before adding any new products to your diet.
What's the Environmental Impact?
With 64% of Americans drinking at least one cup of coffee a day, coffee beans have an enormous impact on the planet. Coffee plants may also be particularly sensitive to climate change, so we risk losing much of the coffee crop in the near future.
Long story short, the system needs to change, and we don't have time to waste.
At Inlands, we're thinking bigger than just a beverage. From the sourcing of our most popular product to the smallest biodegradable shipping label, we're conscious at every step.
- Our mushrooms and coffee are: organic certified, fair trade, and grown with regenerative techniques that improve soil.
- Our packaging is: minimal, biodegradable, and compostable.
- Our workers: earn above living wages and work in safe, healthy conditions.
Not to mention, we're women-owned and we donate a portion of profits to NGOs. Drink your coffee, and feel good about it.
