Let's keep this simple
Mushrooms are the future. No, not the magical kind; the adaptogenic kind that occur naturally. Common adaptogenic mushrooms are Ashwagandha, Lions Mane, Cordyceps and Chaga, which form the foundations of our products.
What are Nootropics?
Nootropics are supplements that are used to boost the cognitive abilities and the brain functioning of individuals.
Since there are many different ways that the brain functions, there is no way to accurately sum up what all nootropics do, as some of them will impact learning, others will impact cognition, and others may impact memory.

What are Mushrooms?
There’s a massive array of benefits from consuming various mushrooms. Most major aspects of health can potentially be improved by supplementing with the right type of shroom.
Research suggests that cardiovascular health, liver and kidney function, gut health, the immune system, some types of cancer, blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, weight, inflammation, and energy levels can all be managed by taking certain types of mushroom supplements.
What are the benefits of Lions Mane?
Researchers have found that the organic compounds hericenones and erinacines, found only in lion’s mane, can induce Nerve Growth Factor synthesis
in nerve cells.
For this reason, lion’s mane has been shown to help with lifting brain fog, raising mood, and improving memory.
This is one of the best nootropics out there for overall cognitive function, and we think it is well worth considering for your daily stack.
What are the benefits of Chaga?
Chaga can keep neurons healthy, which can lead to a holistic improvement in cognitive function across
This is especially important as you age and your brain cells naturally begin to deteriorate. In this way, Chaga mushrooms could be a potent anti-aging supplement.
Chaga is also considered an adaptogen which means that it can normalize the body’s hormone levels in response to stress.
Adaptogens like Chaga are known to lower anxiety levels and allow you to keep a level head during difficult situations.
What are the benefits of Reishi?
Reishi is prized for its effects on memory. Multiple trials suggest that it can improve this ability, especially in the face of cognitive decline.
It is also suggested that it may be able to help regulate the body’s hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis, which is responsible for the “fight or flight” response.
This could improve your response to stress and anxiety, allowing you to keep calm in difficult circumstances.
There are also clinical trials showing that reishi may fight depression and fatigue by raising mood and energy levels
What are the benefits of Cordyceps?
This fungus has an energizing
effect on the body and brain and can act as a cognition and mood booster. Multiple studies back this up
This revitalizing effect also
seems to carry over into mental health. As an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory medicine, cordyceps
may prevent neural degeneration as you age, keeping your mind young and agile
What are the benefits of Maitake?
Maitake can reportedly improve levels of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor
(BDNF). BDNF is a crucial neuropeptide that helps your nervous system maintain old neurons and grow new ones
As you might guess, this is an extremely important function. The brain’s ability to grow and regenerate is necessary for healthy cognition across the board.
It is particularly critical for forming and storing new memories, as this process relies on physically making new neural connections.
Maitake also activates the brain’s AMPA receptors, which are implicated in many crucial cognitive functions, including emotional regulation. This could have a positive wide-ranging effect on cognition and mood.
What are the benefits of Ashwaghanda?
As stress raises cortisol levels (the main stress hormones), it can interfere with your sleep cycle, making it an important factor to control to help you drift off faster and sleep deeper.
What are the benefits of Montmorency Cherry?
Helps support a regulated sleep cycle.
Ashwagandha contains adaptogenic properties, which are understood to support the body and the brain in dealing with the emotional effects of stress. As stress raises cortisol levels (the main stress hormones), it can interfere with your sleep cycle, making it an important factor to control to help you drift off faster and sleep deeper.
An extremely powerful anti-inflammatory agent, with a well-documented ability to fight oxidative stress in the body and brain.
In fact, these medicinal mushrooms have one of the highest ORAC values of any known food. The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale is used to measure the capacity of any food to scavenge harmful free radicals from cells and prevent oxidative damage.
Cordyceps mushroom is a rare and highly prized fungus that grows in the high elevations of the Himalayas.
Cordyceps might improve immunity by stimulating cells and specific chemicals in the immune system. It might also help fight cancer cells and shrink tumor size, particularly with lung or skin cancers.
One of the most popular natural nootropic supplements for increasing brain power.Is a mushroom that grows on trunks of dead hardwood trees such as oak. It has a long history of use in East Asian medicine.
Notably, this fungus may be one of the most potent boosters of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) in the body
