When interviewing Maryam Montague recently, I was intrigued when she recommended drinking mushroom elixir as an energy boost for her busy life. Mushrooms have long been considered an antioxidant-rich super food with a range of potential health benefits. I like the idea of using a mushroom elixir as a healthy alternative to coffee. You can also add it to your smoothie in warmer months.
Maryam favors Four Sigmatic’s Cordyceps Mushroom Elixir Mix, which targets a sustained, even-keeled energy level. Other blends focus on balancing your immune system, promoting focus, and aiding sleep. They’ve also partnered up with Boarding 4 Breast Cancer (B4BC), a non-profit foundation for breast cancer prevention. A portion of the proceeds from every sale of Four Sigmatic’s products helps provide free mushroom kits to cancer patients.
