Could mushroom coffee be the new health craze?

Although you wouldn’t naturally think the two work well together, apparently combining mushroom and coffee makes for a hearty and healthy kick start to the day. 

Due to their positive effects, combining the two creates a nice balance, as the coffee acts as an energy accelerator, while the mushroom helps to boost your immune system in a multitude of ways. 

Dr. Ken Grey, a holistic physician with Jupiter Medical Centre, describes exotic mushroom supplements as one of the newest trends for several reasons. The primary reasons being that they help to prevent cancer cell growth, fight tiredness, and act as an anti-inflammatory. 

One of the questions that has been regularly asked with regards to the latest fad is how much the coffee actually tastes like mushroom. Dr. Ken Grey has said the mushroom taste is next to non-existent. He also insists that they’re a highly intelligent food and have something that can benefit everyone. 

It is believed we will be seeing a lot more of mushroom coffee, especially now there are more diverse and unique cafes popping up. So keep your eyes peeled, as it could well be coming to a coffee shop near you very soon, and who knows, it might even end up being your next barista brew favourite!
