Alcohol-free beer brand Fungtn is branching out into coffee with the development of Lions Mane mushroom-infused coffee for the health conscious consumer.
The start-up is partnering with Balance Coffee to launch Lions Mane Mushroom Coffee for home brewing. The ground coffee gives a ‘warm depth of flavour’, with the mushroom helping to balance the caffeine hit.
Lions Mane has shown in studies to help improve memory and mental clarity, balance the caffeine impact on the body as an adaptogen and help increase focus, explained Fungtn.
The adaptogenic properties of functional mushrooms work ‘synergistically’ with the coffee and help to balance the body’s response to caffeine, which means ‘no crash’ and a milder response on the stomach. “The powerful properties in Lions Mane help to aid focus and complement the morning routine for maximum productivity.”
