CLAIM TO FAME: An adaptogenic beverage that promotes lasting energy throughout the day
FAST FACTS: Whereas caffeine can provide a short energy spike, Cordyceps help your body produce its own long-lasting energy. Its natural compound cordycepin helps speed up the production of ADP (adenosine diphosphate), which later on transforms into ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is a coenzyme that transports energy into cells.
Cordyceps also increase maximum oxygen intake (VO2 max). Many asthma sufferers and former smokers experience great results with Cordyceps, but everyone can benefit from increased breathing capacity.
PERFECT FOR: Staying alert, active, and productive

“The Cordyceps Mushroom Elixir has helped me to cut down the excessive amounts of caffeine I was consuming and I don’t even feel like I am missing energy. I have switched between too much coffee, too much matcha, too much yerba mate, or balancing caffeine pills/ L-Theanine with my tea/coffee none of those have given me the consistent alertness I was really looking for. I can still enjoy my coffee and tea, but I no longer feel like my daily life force depends on my next cup of joe!”

“At Four Sigmatic, we believe in the real magic of functional mushrooms like Reishi, Chaga, Cordyceps, and Lion’s Mane, as well as other superfoods and adaptogens like rhodiola, eleuthero, and schisandra to help us live healthier, more enhanced lives.
We make drinking mushrooms and superfoods delicious and easy-to-do with our Mushroom Coffees, Mushroom Superfood Blends, and Mushroom Elixirs. We sell tins for at-home use and single-serve packets, which are convenient to carry (and share!). We love blending our products with a cup of hot water and nut milk or mixing them into our smoothies and shakes. We have a myriad of recipes if you feel like getting fancy, and even wrote a whole cookbook about how to use them. But the bottom line is, we believe life is better when we’re #onshrooms, every day, all day.
