If you’re like me, you might find yourself scrolling through multiple videos on Instagram, where health influencers educate their audience with tips and tricks on how to lead a healthy lifestyle. 

One morning, I watched a video of an influencer who had mentioned taking functional mushrooms to enhance her performance and de-stress. My first immediate thought was if she had been referring to psychedelic mushrooms. However, after doing some research, she was definitely not referring to the psychedelic ones. So, if you’re confused, I’m here to share what functional mushrooms are all about. 

What are longevity mushrooms?

Longevity mushrooms, also known as functional or medicinal mushrooms, come in various types of mushrooms, such as Reishi, Lion’s Mane, Cordyceps, and Shiitake. They are safe and are not psychedelicThey have been used during the Han Dynasty in China as a part of their medicinal procedures.

What does it taste like?

When these mushrooms are created into powder-like consistency or textures such as peanut butter, they give your taste buds a nutty, earthy, and slightly bitter flavor. If you are sensitive to the flavor, it might be better enjoyed when mixed in smoothies, beverages, or foods!

Are longevity mushrooms good for you?

Absolutely! Here are a few benefits of longevity mushrooms:

Enhances Performance

Mushrooms, especially Lion’s Mane mushrooms, have provided cognitive benefits. 

They can improve reaction time, focus and concentration, and decision-making skills, as well as benefit athletic performance.

Boosts Immune System

Cordyceps, reishi, and turkey tail are all mushrooms that can support the immune system. Mushrooms can stimulate cytokine production, small soluble proteins that act as intracellular mediators in an immune response, making them responsible for the body’s immune and inflammation responses. 

Supports Stress Management

Mushrooms such as Reishi and Lion’s Mane have adaptogenic properties that allow the body to cope with stress and anxiety more effectively. They also contain a high concentration of compounds called triterpenoids, which are natural sedatives that work with the nervous system to promote relaxation and reduce symptoms of anxiety.
