As many of you know, I have been doing my “state change” challenge, which is based on the book State Change by Robin Berzin. She is a functional doctor that dedicated a book on how you can essentially transform how you feel through ways beyond prescription medicine. I was immediately gravitated to it and sure enough, I started implementing many of her recommendations into my life and re-introducing some I lost sight of. One of the routines I lost sight of was sipping my nightly Four Sigmatic Mushroom Cacao with Reishi. I know you read the word ‘mushroom’ and you’re thinking HUH!??! But hear me out….this stuff changed my life and the benefits are OUT of this world! (no- you’re not trippin’ on this lol) If you’ve been following me awhile, you know I swear by this stuff. Read on for why for you need to add Mushroom Cacao with Reishi to your night routine!
Why I love Mushroom Cacao with Reishi
Not only does this hot cacao taste good (like hot chocolate, no joke), the benefits are INSANE!!! I know you read mushroom and you’re thinking EW but I am telling you these superfoods work wonders. Reishi mushrooms (formally known as ganoderma lucidum) are fungi that have been used for centuries primarily in Asian countries to help with immune health, stress and even improve sleep. Four Sigmatic decided to figure out how to apply these mushrooms to our modern lives. Starting in Finland, deep in nature, Four Sigmatic dedicated time to understand the powers behind these type of superfood mushrooms. Four Sigmatic then takes the bitter tasting mushrooms like Reishi and creates everyday products so we can reap the benefits- like in Cacao form….GENIUS (they also make coffees)! Read up here on the insane benefits of the queen mushroom, Reishi. I love the cacao mix because it is a simple powder that is added to hot water (or milk) and it truly is a relaxing experience between the taste and ritual of drinking it. It’s organic, non-GMO, plant-based, no added sugars but taste’s almost too good to be true. This is a staple in my night routine and helps me calm down, sleep and feel relaxed every single sip. I love that it makes me feel GOOD while tasting good is good for you 🙂
When to use Four Sigmatic Mushroom Cacao with Reishi
As I mentioned, I sip the Reishi Cacao as a part of my nighty routine- curled up with a book or watching TV. Four Sigmatic has other mushroom products if you’re looking for focus or energy but Reishi is the best for the evening or “chill” times. It is caffeine free too and is full of clean ingredients so it’s like a dessert without the guilt! The perfect tool to help you wind down.
Where to buy Four Sigmatic
You can buy ALL Four Sigmatic products through their website (you can sign up for subscriptions!) or directly through their Amazon. I also find it at my local Whole Foods and Mother Markets! You can buy a set of packs for typically less than $20 or a single packet to try at a local store. I guarantee though you will be hooked once you try it. I always travel with them too to help reduce my anxiety on the go.
5/5 no doubt for this product. It’s SO good (even Robb agrees lol) and is a simple way to add goodness into your life that isn’t overwhelming or tastes too weird. With all the wellness trends out there, mushrooms are on the forefront for a reason and the benefits of the shrooms are worth consuming, especially in hot chocolate form 🙂
