Medicinal mushrooms are all beneficial for supporting the immune system due to their beta glucans content, they are great modulators so if the immune system is under or over active they will help to regulate and bring it back into balance. Each mushroom has it’s own unique set of compounds and health benefits. Cordyceps powder is most known for it’s energizing properties, benefits for athletes, as well as hormonal balance and cardiovascular health. Reishi mushroom is known as the ‘mushroom of immortality’ and has powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine properties. Maitake is an excellent immune supporter, anti-viral and has shown benefits for blood sugar balancing too. This combination of mushrooms certainly packs a nutritional punch, and is great to add to your daily diet for full body support.
In this recipe we have combined our Mycomplex mushroom powder with one of our favourite superfoods Matcha. Matcha does contain caffeine-though less than your regular cup of coffee- and alongside it contains L-theanine, which is an amino acid known for it’s calming and balancing effects on the body. It is also packed with antioxidants and other nutrients. Matcha is an excellent alternative to coffee, and this mushroom matcha latte is the perfect choice for the morning, or a post-lunch pick me up…
