Ah, that first cup of coffee in the morning. Between the comforting smell, that familiar taste, and the jolt of caffeine that helps stimulate the nervous system to keep us alert, that cup is almost a sacred experience. In low doses, coffee can actually be a great source of some essential nutrients, like antioxidants, vitamin B2, vitamin B5, and magnesium. The problem arises with too much coffee. It can leave us feeling wired, moody, or stressed due to increased cortisol levels.

The solution? Adaptogens, a classification of herbs and mushrooms with well-documented benefits, can be safely consumed by adding them to your morning cup of joe to help maintain good health by supporting the body’s healthy stress and immune responses.

What is adaptogen coffee?

Adaptogen coffee is simply coffee with added adaptogens to help supercharge your bevy and body! Adaptogens have long been revered in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese herbal practices, with some of the most popular adaptogens today being herbs like Ashwagandha, Eleuthero, Holy Basil, and Rhodiola.

Adaptogens can be compared to a thermostat, adapting the body’s stress response like a thermostat controls temperature because the compounds they contain can possess opposing qualities, such as being either relaxing or energizing. The body’s specific needs can dictate it’s response, supporting a healthy stress response and a healthy immune system.

Adaptogenic mushrooms

Adaptogens are not just herbs. They can also be mushrooms, though not all mushrooms are considered adaptogens. Some superfood mushrooms like Reishi, Lion’s Mane, and Chaga can be rich sources of adaptogenic properties that support the body’s health. Taken regularly, mushroom adaptogens may help promote homeostasis so the body and mind can achieve a calm balance.

Types of mushroom coffee

Different adaptogenic mushrooms and blends will provide different benefits. Depending on your health goals, you may wish to focus on a specific type of adaptogen/mushroom blend to add to your coffee to reap the most appropriate adaptogen coffee benefits for your needs.

Reishi mushrooms coffee

Reishi is best known for helping the body adapt to stress and for releasing tension and promoting a sense of calm. It may seem contradictory to add reishi mushroom powder to a cup of coffee, which is typically used to stimulate the senses rather than calm them. However, Reishi mushroom coffee can also help promote productivity and clarity without overstimulating the mind.‡ Rritual’s Reishi Relax Elixir is enhanced withAshwagandha root, which is one of the world’s most popular herbs for stress support.

Reishi mushroom coffee can be a great choice for those who are looking to move through the midday slump, or for those who are particularly sensitive to caffeine. Consider trying this blend with half-decaf coffee to ensure that no matter what time you drink it, you can still turn it off and unwind at the end of the day.


Chaga mushrooms coffee

Revered as the “king of mushrooms” in Eastern herbalism, Chaga has been consumed for centuries in Asia, North America and Eastern Europe as both a food and therapeutic tonic due to its unique nutritive value and for its ability to support a healthy immune system.‡ Rritual’s Chaga Immune Elixir also contain the adaptogens Astragalus Root and Schisandra berry, an immune-super duo which helps maintain the body’s natural defenses, while the addition of Eleuthero root keeps you feeling in tip-top shape by providing whole-body stress support.

Chaga mushroom coffee is best sipped first thing in the morning because it can help to support the body all day long. Eleuthero Root may help ward off fatigue and depletion while Astragalus Root may act as an antioxidant.


Lion’s Mane Coffee

Ready to get stuff done? Lion’s mane mushroom powder added to your coffee could be just the thing! Lion’s mane can help you stay alert, laser-focused, and mentally sharp.‡ Rritual’s Lion’s Mane Focus Elixir is enhanced with the adaptogen Rhodiola root to support overall outlook and cognitive performance, including to sharpen mental focus and productivity. 

Lion’s Mane coffee could support optimal cognitive performance, so it is best consumed when you need to keep your head down and be productive! Rhodiola is not known to over-stimulate so similarly to Reishi mushroom coffee, this blend can be consumed at any time of the day. Remember to consider the addition or substitution of decaf coffee in your cup if you are drinking it later in the day to ensure your sleep is unaffected.


What are the benefits of mushroom coffee?

Mushroom or adaptogen coffee benefits are both vast and unique. Depending on your body’s individual needs, we recommend selecting an elixir to add to your coffee to compliment your goals. Learn more about the benefits of mushroom coffee.

Adaptogen coffee benefits

The reality is that adding adaptogens to your coffee could greatly benefit your health.

Firstly, you may find that you require fewer cups a day because of the benefits experienced by the addition of the adaptogens you’ve selected. Excessive amounts of caffeine can cause anxiety, restlessness, tremors, and even irregular heartbeats that could disrupt your overall health.

Additionally, both the body and the mind can benefit from regular doses of adaptogen coffee. Adaptogen coffee can help to nourish the body’s immune system, improve cognitive function, and support overall health.

Adaptogen coffee benefits will be most noticeable when you consume it regularly, so consider including adaptogen coffee into your wellness routine for all of the cumulative benefits.
