I was always a coffee lover.
Since my diagnose though, I realized there are studies showing that burnt coffee can be carcinogenic.
But coffee companies argue that although coffee does contain a possible carcinogen— a chemical called acrylamide — it isn’t present in the drink in levels that are high enough to increase the risk of cancer in people. Oh, dah!
Also, I learned that coffee is acidic and cancer is thriving in acidic environment.
So I was looking for a solution to my problem. And I tried a lot of organic herbal coffee alternatives, even decaf organic coffees… but to be honest with you, none satisfied my craving for a real coffee.
Then I discovered my mystery coffee what I call the mushroom-coffee.
By definition mushroom is a fungus or the spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus. Several common varieties can be poisonous. Did you know that we humans share approximately 40% of our DNA with mushrooms? Because of this DNA similarity humans are very prone to fungal diseases like candida or mold related diseases. So, mushroom can be our worst enemy ….
Or our best friend….
The flip side is that certain species contain extremely beneficial compounds for our health. Remember, a lot of pharmaceutical drugs are derived from fungi, just think about penicillin…
On the other hand, non-toxic mushrooms are edible and I consider them the best substitute for meat.
Modern nutritionists include mushrooms among the healthiest of foods, particularly oriental varieties such as chaga and shiitake.
It is well-known that Chinese medicine use them for treating diseases for thousands of years.
And medicinal mushrooms are my secret weapon #1 to fight cancer, too.
On this note,
My newly discovered type of instant coffee mix is:
*Less acidic than normal coffee (no stomach burning). Mushrooms help alkalize the effects of coffee’s natural acidity while also being anti-inflammatory.
*Extremely high quality coffee and mushrooms (no pesticides, no myco-toxins)
*Jitter-free- the premium blend of Arabica, lion’s mane and chaga only contains 40mg of caffeine per serving
*Includes powerful antioxidants and immune boosting properties
*Boosts your brain & productivity
*Reduces stress, improves concentration, memory, and alertness. The mushrooms in the coffee have been shown to stimulate the immune system while increasing energy levels naturally.
And best of all — it tastes great.
So what’s this mystery super coffee?
It’s called Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee Mix and it’s been my favorite coffee-drink since I discovered it.
You can also try La Republica with a blend of seven mushrooms for more benefits.
Turns out, I am not the only one excited about it — everyone from elite athletes, to Moms, to nutritionists, authors, and even professional dancers have found the benefits & taste of the mushroom coffee to be absolutely great.
If you’re avoiding caffeine, they have caffeine free flavors too — which are also delicious and offer similar benefits to their main mushroom coffee.
Try it, I know you will enjoy it.
