If you love following all the latest food trends, you’re probably familiar with mushroom coffee – a tasty beverage with numerous health benefits that many coffee lovers swear by. Several brands tried to push this trend to the forefront, but Four Sigmatic was the leader in this field from the very start.

This Los Angeles-based company has been around since 2012, but it took a while for this trend to catch up. The founders of this enterprise had one goal in mind – finding one tiny thing that could make an enormous impact to people’s health.

They found what they were looking for in medicinal mushrooms. They opted for four types of fungi – chaga, lion’s mane, reishi, and cordyceps – and used them to create their special powder. Adding it to your regular black coffee is the most popular option, but it can be mixed with other beverages, like matcha, lattes and even lemonade.

The founders of Four Sigmatic decided to go with mushrooms because their flavor perfectly goes with coffee, and provides several health benefits. Certain studies suggest this mix can have anti-inflammatory effect, boost immunity and enhance mood.

Though, it’s still important to tread lightly with mushroom coffee, since it can lead to unexpected side effects.
