Review: Four Stigmatic Mushroom Coffee Mix, with Lions Mane & Chaga
About: Four Stigmatic is all about making drinking mushrooms and superfoods delicious and easy to do. They have mushroom coffees, mushroom superfood blends and mushroom elixirs. Incorporating in their drinks are these amazing immunity, and enery boosting mushrooms such Reishi, Chaga, Cordyceps, and Lion’s Mane along with adapotgens like rhodiola, eleuthro and schisadra.
To combat the acidness of coffee they added a highly alkaline forming chaga mushroom extract, chaga is an antioxidant, anti-viral, and immune boosting. A cool fact about Chaga is that it tastes really close to coffee, in fact in Finland they used chaga as a coffee replacement during World War 2.
The Mushroom coffee mix also contains Cordyceps mushrooms that add an extra energy boost, and allows this blend to use less then half the caffeine as regular coffee. Cordyceps also help with adrenal support.
My take: I know that Mushroom coffee doesn’t sound very appetizing at first…unless your talking about the magical kind and I’m too old for any of that. Mind you, this is coming from someone who can drink some pretty crazy health drinks and straight up green juices but I really like this coffee. I like that is easy to use you just make you just mix it with hot water and your good to go so for work and on the go its perfect.
I found that it gives you that nice coffee buzz but a little more smooth and without all the other side effects of caffeine, no stomach upset or anything like that.
It tastes like coffee just a little bit different. Its a tiny bit sweet so you don’t really need to add sweeter. I do add a tiny bit of almond or coconut milk but you could skip it too. It gives you that nice coffee buzz but a little more smooth and without all the other side effects of caffeine. If your looking for a new coffee alternative this is great or looking to wean your self off coffee this would work good for that too.
