What is Mushroom Synergy?

Synergy means combining two or more things to create an effect greater than the sum of its parts. In the context of functional mushrooms, cultivating synergy involves taking at least two different mushrooms to enjoy their combined benefits. Doing this can create a more efficient wellness regime and allow you to notice effects more quickly. 


What Benefits do Mushrooms Have to Offer?

Functional mushrooms have a holistic effect in our bodies. Their medicinal compounds facilitate whole-body harmony. With consistent use, you can expect: 

  • Improved digestive wellness with Turkey Tail. 
  • Increased energy and endurance with Cordyceps. 
  • Stronger resilience to stress with Reishi. 
  • Enhanced memory and focus with Lion’s Mane. 
  • Improved immunity with Chaga.
