The ketogenic diet, or keto diet, is a dietary way to proactively burn fats and support your quality of life.  It combines a high fat dietary regimen with a healthy mix of proteins and a low amount of carbohydrates, which places your body into a metabolic state known as ketosis.

How do mushrooms and keto diets go together, you might ask? Well, that’s what we’re going to discover in this article.

Are mushrooms keto friendly?

If you stick to a keto diet, there are certain types of foods you should consume to support your efforts. Mushrooms are one of the healthiest foods to eat on a keto diet as they contain few carbs or calories, low concentrations of fats, and high amounts of fiber.

Mushrooms provide a number of benefits to the body to support the immune system and cope with stressful situations. A healthy immune system is one of the goals of any keto diet, and a healthy serving of mushrooms or mushroom powders can help keep your body in a healthy frame as you commit to your keto diet.

Additionally, mushrooms can benefit your mind with supportive boosts in cognitive function, focus, and relaxation to help you sleep. Improved mental acuity, focus, and determination will help you stick to the very specific requirements for your keto diet so that you reap the healthy benefits of your efforts.

Why are mushrooms keto friendly?

Mushrooms have existed for thousands of years, typically in forests and wooded areas scattered all over the globe. For generations, cultures across Asia have used mushrooms traditionally for herbal remedies in order to provide organic support to both the body and the mind. Over time, the benefits derived from mushrooms in East Asian cultures became common knowledge in western civilization, increasing the demand for mushrooms to support health and wellness.

Mushrooms are popular additions to healthy meals. For example, they can be chopped up and added to salads or mixed with a creamy sauce to produce delicious mushroom soup. They can also be added as a topping to specific types of sandwiches or vegan burgers to ensure the healthy nutrients within the mushrooms enter your digestive system.

In addition to the whole mushroom, you can derive some of the potential health benefits through mushroom powder, particularly plant-based mushroom powders such as those produced by Rritual Superfoods.* From supporting the body’s immune system to improving cognitive brain function and adapting to stressful situations, plant-based mushroom powders can help you get potential support to your overall health and well-being.

Different types of keto friendly mushrooms

So what types of mushrooms and mushrooms powders are best suited to support your keto diet? Among the most likely mushroom powders to assist you with your efforts are reishi, lion’s mane, and chaga powders that each offer potential benefits to your body and your mind’s efforts in going keto.

Reishi mushroom health benefits

Known as the “mushroom of immortality,” reishi mushroom powders are revered by herbal practitioners around the world for their ability to help the body and the mind adapt to stress. Reishi typically has a positive effect on the body’s immune system, supporting your body and mind in coping with stressful moments in healthy ways.

At Rritual, our plant-based reishi powders contain traces of ashwagandha root, an adaptogen that functions as a healthy supplement to feed your body vital nutrients.* Ashwaghandha and reishi also work together to provide numerous benefits to your skin to help it remain youthful and maintain a healthy glow.

Lion’s mane mushroom health benefits

Long recognized for its ability to support brain health and cognitive performance, lion’s mane mushroom powders have recently been recognized as nootropic compounds. This means that they help activate areas of the mind that may be dormant for periods of time, enabling the brain to function at high optimal performance.

Rritual’s plant-based lion’s mane powders also contain traces of rhodiola, an adaptogen that helps the body adjust to significant environmental changes. This is particularly helpful during equinox periods of the year as the weather shifts between seasons. Many people’s immune systems struggle to adapt to sudden changes in the weather, and rhodiola mixed with lion’s mane powder can help you cope with the more significant changes.

Chaga mushroom health benefits

Chaga mushroom powders have been commonly used in both Eastern and Western herbal remedies for many years.Chaga is one of several organic substances to consume in support of your body’s immune system, enabling you to function at peak performance without succumbing to potentially harmful external stressors.

At Rritual, our plant-based chaga powders are further enhanced with traces of both astragalus root and eleuthero root. Both are adaptogens that help the body maintain its own defenses. Eleuthero root can also help you feel in your top physical prime. When mixed with chaga powders, astragalus also has supportive benefits for the skin.
