There’s something incredibly therapeutic about hugging a warm cup of tea during those colder months. Feeling the warmth of an adaptogenic tea is basically comfort in a mug, especially if you practice tea mediation. Drinking tea will provide health benefits beyond the pure feeling of comfort, though.  

Tea can even help boost your immune system when your body needs it most, especially during cold and flu season (not to mention COVID times). However, not all teas are created equal when it comes to helping you strengthen your immune system. Now, It’s important to note that consistent restful sleep, vitamin intake, stress reduction, and exercise are things you need to incorporate into your daily or weekly routine to ensure you’re staying healthy overall. But sometimes, it’s a good idea to add supplements like mushroom-based tea to help get you there.  

In this article, we’re talking about the benefits of mushroom-based tea as well as ways it can help boost your immune system.


Types of Tea to Boost Your Immune System 

Mushroom-based tea is believed to have a positive effect on both your body and mind. Let’s talk about our favorite mushrooms and their respective health benefits as it relates to strengthening your immune system.



Chaga Mushroom 

An antioxidant powerhouse, Chaga mushrooms are great for supporting your immune system because of their ability to fight off free radicals and inflammation. This immune-friendly and adaptogenic mushroom is also packed with B-complex vitamins, zinc, iron, vitamin D, and selenium. Chaga may also promote the following health benefits:

  • May increase energy 
  • May lower blood sugar levels
  • Promote immune support
  • May lower stress because it contains antioxidants
  • Help fight inflammation

Reishi Mushroom

Studies have shown that reishi mushrooms promote both innate immune function and cellular immunity. Why is this important to know? As an adaptogenic herb, reishi’s believed ability to reduce stress can, in turn, improve overall sleep. As you may know, stress and a consistent lack of sleep can negatively affect our immune systems, making them weaker and more prone to illness. The good news is that you can take steps to help protect your immune system. Some other health benefits of reishi mushrooms include:

  • May enhance your overall mood
  • Supports your immune system
  • Promotes restful sleep
  • Inflammatory properties

Why not reach for Rritual’s Reishi Relax adaptogenic powder when you’re craving a hot beverage? Your body and mind will thank you.


Lion's Mane Mushroom

Who knew that this fun, the pom-pom-shaped mushroom could pack in so many health benefits? Although this adaptogenic herb is known best for its ability to help improve mental clarity, focus, and overall concentration, it provides so much more. Lion’s mane contains polysaccharides and other antioxidants that help strengthen your immune system, fight off illness and help reduce inflammation.

Best Mushroom Tea for Your Immune System

So what’s the best mushroom tea to boost your immune system? Well, that depends on your individual needs (bet you saw that coming, right?). But the truth is, as each kind of mushroom tea we’ve mentioned may help your immune system, it comes down to you and your health goals. Taking the above information into consideration, think about what your body would most benefit from, and then opt for that particular mushroom tea. 

However, in the case of immune support, we would have to say that Chaga is our go-to because of the fact that it’s an antioxidant powerhouse plus offers a plethora of extra health benefits. After all, that’s exactly why we’ve named our high-quality supplement “Chaga Immune.”


Additional Health Benefits of Chaga Mushroom Tea 

So what are Chaga mushrooms, exactly? Chaga mushrooms are a nutrient-dense mushroom that grows on birch trees in Asia, Canada, Northern Europe, Russia, and some North-Eastern parts of the United States.

In addition to their ability to support the immune system, Chaga mushrooms also contain high levels of melanin. This is believed to mimic the melanin which is naturally produced in the skin. This allows for anti-aging properties, repairing damaged skin cells, and can act as a protectant against the sun. 

What’s more, is that Chaga can also help reduce thyroid antibodies by increasing natural killer cell response and activating immune pathways. This can help to restore balance to the related hormones and cells that cause health issues such as hypo and hyperthyroidism.
