Why mushroom coffee?

If you’re a regular coffee drinker looking to transition away from coffee, this could be for you! Because mushroom coffee typically contains about half the amount of caffeine as coffee, it can help avoid some of those annoying caffeine withdrawal symptoms, like headaches, mood swings, or tiredness. It also adds some impactful nutrients to your body in the form of adaptogens and superfood or functional mushrooms. Even better, mushroom coffee allows you to customize the benefits to your body based on the types of mushrooms and adaptogens present in the mix, meaning there is pretty much a variety for everyone! You can find more info about the benefits of mushroom coffee here.

Does mushroom coffee have caffeine?

Mushroom coffee is pretty easy to personalize, and there are a few different forms in which you can incorporate it into your routine. The first is a pre-mixed mushroom coffee powder. These are the least customizable variety, as you will be looking at a pre-set amount of caffeine in the powder (usually about equal to one cup of green tea,) and will be formulated with specific mushrooms. 

The second is to add the mushroom powder to your cup of coffee. This is particularly interesting because it allows you to select how much caffeine you would like to include. For example, you may wish to start with ¾ a cup of coffee and ¼ of decaf and gradually increase the decaf to caffeinated ratio. Additionally, when using this method, you can choose the mushrooms and adaptogens that fit your needs. Check out this handy list of mushroom adaptogens and benefits.

Mushroom coffee benefits

If avoiding caffeine withdrawals isn’t enough to convince you to give mushroom coffee ago as an alternative to coffee and tea in the morning, here are some benefits that might:

  • Immune system support*
  • Could help improve cognitive function*
  • Can support the body’s healthy stress response*
  • Can provide a natural energy boost without caffeine*

Types of Mushrooms for Energy

In our humble opinion, if you are looking for energy without caffeine, there is one clear winner in the mushroom world and that’s the Lion’s Mane mushroom. 

Most recognized for their ability to help keep you alert, focused, and mentally sharp, Lion’s Mane mushrooms are considered nootropics, which are known to enhance memory and other cognitive function.* Best of all, Lion’s Mane powders (like Rritual’s Lion’s Mane Focus Elixir,) often contain other super-charged ingredients to optimize your results. Look for adaptogens like Rhodiola root (which, aside from being a herb known to help maintain peak cognitive performance, was also consumed by Vikings to keep up their physical stamina, good health, and sharpness of mind. So, that’s pretty neat.) and Bacopa, which is an Ayurvedic herb that has traditionally been consumed to support the presence of mind and cognitive longevity.* Alternatively try Rritual’s Variety pack.
