When people first try NeuRoast, or mushroom coffee in general, they usually have one of two reactions: they feel it immediately or they don't feel the difference at first. To be honest, neither reaction is right or wrong. That's why we thought we'd clear the air about what you can expect when switching from regular coffee to mushroom coffee.
How It Works
Like most diets, supplements, and training plans, the best results go hand-in-hand with consistency. You may feel an immediate surge of energy, focus, and alertness, likely due to the caffeine and Cordyceps extract, but in our opinion, the best results from drinking mushroom coffee happen over the long term with consistent use.
The Short AND Long-Term Performance Benefits of Cordyceps
Cordyceps naturally boost adenosine triphosphate levels (ATP) and O2 uptake in the body to help increase and sustain energy levels. Several small-scale studies (and thousands of years of anecdotal evidence) have reported significant boosts in athletic performance associated with Cordyceps consumption.
In one study, twenty healthy elderly subjects, ages 50–75 years, were enrolled in this double-blind, placebo-controlled, prospective trial. The subjects were taking either Cs-4 333 mg or placebo capsules 3 times a day for 12 weeks. The results? The subjects who consumed Cordyceps saw a 10.5% increase in their metabolic threshold vs. the placebo control group.
If after your first cup of NeuRoast you feel an increase in physical and mental output, energy, and focus you can likely thank the Cordyceps extract. Within a couple of weeks, you'll experience the compounding physical performance effects of introducing Cordyceps to your diet regularly.
The Short AND Long-Term Nootropic Benefits of Lion's Mane
Lion's Mane works by stimulating the production of nerve growth factor (NGF) in the brain which stimulates new neuron growth. Over time, Lion's Mane may help you improve your concentration, memory, and focus and most importantly, protect your nervous system. It's currently being researched for it's potential to prevent and even reverse neurogenerative diseases like Parkinson's Disease and Alzheimer's.
The nootropic, brain strengthening effects of Lion's Mane begin when you start drinking mushroom coffee but to benefit from truly sustained and improved memory, focus, and cognitive enhancement, you'll want to consume NeuRoast consistently over time. Will you feel it instantly? Maybe, and if you do, great! If not, rest assured that the best results are ahead of you.
Long-Term Benefits of Chaga
Chaga is one of the most potent antioxidant sources in the world with an ORAC score of over 50,000 and up to 100,000 per 100g depending on the extraction method. It also contains more melanin and zinc than any other natural resource on Earth. While Chaga isn't a primary ingredient in our extract blend, we wanted to include this antioxidant, anti-inflammatory superfood to help improve overall health.
Taken consistently, Chaga can help ward off the common cold, prevent illnesses and improve skin health.
Long-Term Benefits of Shiitake
Shiitake mushrooms contain a chemical called eritadenine which helps balance cholesterol levels by binding to cholesterol preventing the accumulation of lipids in the blood vessels and liver. While this benefit may be unlocked immediately, it's with long-term sustained consumption that the truly therapeutic value of the Shiitake extract can shine.
Long-Term Benefits of Reishi
Reishi is a primary ingredient in our extract blend because of its ability to improve sleep, relaxation, and help your body adapt to physical and mental stress. The most common side effect of most energy drinks or pills is the dreaded crash. You feel great for 4 hours or so, and then you're a tired, sometimes even anxious wreck.
The triterpenes contained in Reishi improve blood circulation while reducing cellular oxidation caused by stress, and help regulate the endocrine system to promote hormonal balance reducing the exhaustive effects of stress on the body, and promoting a sense of calm. The polysaccharides found in Reishi act as adaptogenic immunomodulators that strengthen the immune system and help the body adapt to foreign substances like histamines, bacteria, and viruses.
Long-Term Benefits of Turkey Tail
The last mushroom in our extract blend is Turkey Tail, renowned for its ability to aid in digestion, prevent cold and flu-like symptoms, and boost immune system response. Its two unique beta-glucans, polysaccharide peptide (PSP) and polysaccharide krestin (PSK) are being researched for their ability to regenerate white blood cells and combat cancer.
You may feel the enhanced nootropic effects of Cordyceps and Lion's Mane from the beginning, but we urge you not to chase instant gratification. The long-term benefit of Cordyceps, Lion's Mane, Reishi, Shiitake, Chaga, and Turkey Tail are far too great and can't be accessed in regular coffee. Try NeuRoast consistently for at least 7-14 days to start experiencing the cumulative effects. If you're not impressed, send it back for a full refund - we'll drink it.
