As we continue to practice social distancing and protect ourselves and others during COVID-19, it’s important to eat healthy, stay active and get enough sleep while working, studying, and taking care of family while staying #saferathome.
When the innovative people at Four Sigmatic in Santa Monica, CA, introduced me to their nutrient dense products to try during the pandemic, I discovered a new morning routine.
Tero Isokauppila, Founder and CEO of Four Sigmatic stated on the website, “Now, more than ever, consumers are managing stress and change, so we’ve created a one-of-a-kind wellness shots to align with today’s demanding environment. Our new Four Sigmatic shots are an easy way to integrate wellness throughout the day based on people’s individual needs.”
I learned that mushrooms have been used for years for their medicinal purposes. The Chaga mushroom is one of 2019-2020 Superfoods gaining popularity in a variety of products including coffee and tea, and dietary supplements.
Their Mushroom Coffees do contain actual coffee. A regular cup of coffee contains about 95-200mg of caffeine. Their instant Mushroom Coffee contains only 50 mg of caffeine per serving, and is fair-trade certified.
What makes their coffee different? Mushrooms, adaptogens and superfoods including Chaga, Lion’s Mane, Cordyceps, Turkey Tail, Eleuthero, Probiotics, Yacon, Ashwagandha, Tulsi, and Rhodiola. These ingredients have been shown to support focus, concentration, relaxation, steady energy levels, immune system, and daily wellness.
