You may have heard about mushroom coffee. I know it sounds a little bit like a really strange combination, but lovers of the somewhat eccentric brew say that the earthy essence of mushrooms is a complementary addition to coffee that actually makes for a smoother overall flavor. Plus, the most straightforward benefit of drinking mushroom coffee is that it reduces the overall amount of caffeine in your morning cup. Since the bulk of the mushroom powders contains no caffeine, so your cup of mushroom coffee may have as much as half the amount of caffeine found in your regular coffee. A cup or two of regular coffee in the morning doesn’t have enough caffeine to be a problem for most of us, but for those who are sensitive to caffeine or who are limiting its intake for some other reasons, this may mean that they can enjoy their morning cup of coffee without any particular problems.
But the primary reason for adding mushroom powders to your coffee is to get the nutritional benefits of these mushrooms! Mushrooms contain vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, carotenoids, and polysaccharides that can be beneficial to your health.
