Ground Mushroom Coffee with Lion’s Mane




  • I have some questions that I haven't been able to find answers for:

    1. What's the best way to store the ground coffee?
    2. Does UV light affect the potency of the coffee?
    3. If I normally take two packets of the lion's mane elixer (without coffee), would I get the same benefit from mixing one serving of the ground coffee with a packet of the lion's mane elixer?

    I love your products and I've been using them for a while now.

  • How does your product compare to MUD WTR? I can't help but feel that MUD WTR is a little over-hyped for what it is...

  • Daniel,

    We suggest storing the ground coffee in a cabinet, and it should be kept dry.

    It's best to keep the coffee in an airtight container, or sealed in the bag. It's best for it to not be a clear container. I don't expect UV light is particularly harmful, but a dark or opaque container is always best. 

    The lion's mane elixir includes a much higher dose of lion's mane. If you're specifically wanting the benefits from lion's mane, the elixir would be a good bet! It contains 1.5 grams of lion's mane extract, and the ground coffee contains 250 mg of lion's mane.

  • Brian,

    Thanks for reaching out about this! There are many differences, but the big ones are that we extract our mushrooms, we use 2 types of mushrooms in effective doses, and our coffee is caffeinated. 

    The coffee contains the standard amount of caffeine for a cup of coffee. 

    Mushrooms are inedible raw. In order for your body to access their nutritional benefits like polysaccharides and triterpenes, functional mushrooms must be extracted. 

    Mushrooms contain a compound in their cell wall called chitin. This is the same compound found in crustaceans like crab and shrimp shells so you can imagine how tough it is! Chitin acts like a door, blocking your body from being able to get to all of the compounds in the mushroom. Think of chitin like the door to your kitchen. You’re outside the door, hoping to get in because you know how much delicious and nutritious food lies on the other side. But unless the door has been opened, there’s no way you can access what’s on the other side. The same goes for our bodies and mushrooms.~

    This is why all functional mushrooms in Four Sigmatic products are extracted. We do both a hot water and alcohol extraction to get the most out of each species we use. Once extracted, we spray-dry the extract to create a powder. All our products are potent and ready-to-use (hot or cold) as soon as you get them. We’ve done the heavy lifting for you so all you have to do is sit back, relax, and give yourself props for adding nature’s most powerful ingredients to your routine.

    Enjoy the coffee :)
