Would You Like Mushrooms With that Morning Coffee?

If you're anything like me you love your morning cuppa' joe. Just one cup feels so good, but I can't help that little, health conscious voice inside of me telling me I should be drinking green tea instead. However now there is healthy coffee to consider...

Although skeptical about drinking mushrooms in my coffee, I've been hearing about this so-called healthy coffee so I went for it. Shockingly, the Gano Healthy Coffee actually tasted good. It's a low acid coffee with no hormones or chemicals and far less caffeine that most regular coffees. It is also easy to prepare too, as all the types I tried were instant, which is an added bonus. The Mocha and Shockolate were also very tasty, and more like your basic cup of hot cocoa, than a healthy mushroom drink.

This Brazilian gourmet coffee health claims are in part due to its active ingredient, Reishi. Reishi is actually an herbal mushroom known to have miraculous health benefits in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is suppose to help create normalizing results in the body because of the 150+ different antioxidants and 200 active elements, vitamins and minerals (including a high concentration of Alkaloids, which promote alkalinity in the body). Reishi, the real magic mushroom has also been regarded as a blood pressure stabilizer, antioxidant, analgesic, as well as a kidney and nerve tonic. Who knew? Keep in mind however, Reishi is not yet approved by the FDA.

Y'know, I love coffee ... and I love mushrooms ... but mushroom coffee? I'd be willing to try ... but not very optimistic here.
