Good quality coffee has a lot of benefits, such as high levels of protective antioxidants. Coffee also gives you that amazing jolt of energy and supports motivation and focus. A drawback of coffee consumption is that excess coffee can put the nervous and hormonal systems into a constant state of stress. This is why we've paired our high quality antioxidant-rich coffee WITH medicinal mushrooms. The mushrooms we've used in our blends all have amazing unique benefits and they're all adaptogens. Adaptogens help one's body better adapt to stress and they balance our bodies! Our mushrooms are actually working behind the scenes to create homeostasis in the body, and to ensure that we continue on our day feeling great, without the jitters or caffene crash!

All mushrooms serve a function, either as nourishment or as part of the ecosystem. Functional mushrooms are mushrooms with specific benefits to health. Functional mushrooms have studied benefits in the body. Most of these mushrooms work best as part of your daily routine. They contain beneficial polysaccharides, known as beta-glucans, and many contain beneficial triterpenes as well. Each functional mushroom has a slightly different set of actions in the body. In addition, they are antioxidants, adaptogens, and balance the body and the immune system. 

Mushrooms are food and should generally be considered safe for kids. Of course, all of our products contain coffee or tea, so please keep that in mind as you consider who you share your Wunderground with.

The ideal amount of mushrooms one should consume each day depends on one's general health status and individual health goals. For overall everyday support, 1 gram of a whole mushroom powder should be adequate. Our mushrooms are much more concentrated and therefore more effective, so one should need less than the 1 gram of whole mushroom powder for overall daily wellness. Of course if you are struggling with a more specific imbalance in the body or have been inundated with excess stress, you may need extra support, and therefore a higher dose would be recommended. 

Mushrooms are food and have been consumed as both food and as medicine for many millennia. That being said, mushrooms are extremely safe in very high amounts, even in amounts 10 times higher than what is found in one of our servings! 

Mushrooms are incredibly safe, as they have been used as food for many thousands of years. With that being said, our mushrooms are concentrated extracts. While many studies as well as anectodal evidence have shown mushroom extracts to be safe and effective during all life stages, everyone's bodies are unique and different. With that being said, we recommend you consult your nutritionally oriented health care practitioner before taking any new supplement during pregnancy or breastfeeding. 

There are 250 mg of each mushroom in the instant coffee and tea, and there are 200 mg of each mushroom in the roasted grounds.

Our mushrooms are concentrated extracts. Our Reishi is a 15:1 extract and our other mushrooms are 8:1 extracts. This means that for every 15 lbs of Reishi raw material, you end with 1 lb of extract, meaning that the end extract is extremely potent! For the Lion's Mane, Cordyceps and Chaga mushrooms, for every 8 lbs of the initial material, you end with 1 lb of extract. This too is extremely potent. Many companies use lower concentrated extracts (2:1 or 4:1), or just plain powder, meaning the lower amount of the active constituents, or medicinal value.

The fruiting body is the actual mushroom. This is the typical structure that protrudes above ground, which is the actual mushroom, and where the most beneficial compounds live. Many companies use mycelium roots grown on other substrates like rice or grain, and the actual mushroom doesn’t even have a chance to form. They are then ground up with the grain and powderized, and therefore your mushroom supplement ends up being more starch than mushroom. There’s nothing wrong with mycelium...mycelium is amazing for the soil, the plants and for our world. But the fruiting body is what contains the most beneficial compounds for humans!

Some mushrooms do well with a hot water extract, which offers a plethora of beneficial polysaccharides, such as beta glucans. Others, in addition to the beta glucans, have beneficial compounds known as triterpenes, and these are best made available with an alcohol extract. The term dual extract means that the mushroom has been extracted using hot water as well as using alcohol. Our Chaga and Reishi mushrooms are both hot water and alcohol extracted, therefore making both water and fat-soluble constituents available. Our Lion's Mane and Cordyceps mushrooms are extracted via hot water. 

We are thrilled to feature Japanese artist Kimiaki Yaegashi on our packaging. We love Kimiaki Yaegashi’s wunder-inspiring work and felt his approach was the perfect embodiment of creative exploration. As he describes them, “They are my treasures.” Ours, too. The bio from his socials:  The professional career began in 1998. In 2013, the first book "NIPPON CLIPART" was published by BNN, Inc. And the first solo exhibition "OCTAGON" was held in Berlin, Germany as part of Pictoplasma Festival in 2014. The works are being used for publication, website, fashion, etc, in various countries.
