How To Get Started With Mushroom Extracts in Your Daily Routine
If you’re a mushroom enthusiast who also happens to be an entrepreneur or a creative professional, then chances are, you’ve already heard about the health benefits of using mushrooms as a dietary supplement.
But, you might still have a bunch of questions before you jump in:
- How safe is this?
- What can I expect to get out of this?
- Will this really help me beat my caffeine addiction?What can I expect to get out of this?
This blog post is for you if you’ve been learning about all the wonderful benefits of mushrooms, but don’t know how to get started.
“Which Mushroom Should I Start With?”
I recommend you start with a blend like THRIVE 6 to get a feel for how the mushrooms help you. And if you like how the blend makes you feel, pick a single extract for your needs:
- Need to focus more? Grab some Lion’s Mane.
- Get sick easily? Try Turkey Tail.
- Feeling sluggish on your weekend soccer league? Catch some Cordyceps.

“I was VERY surprised by the energy/focus boost I got from this powder. This is my first experience with any mushroom supplement and I’m sold. I took a little bit less than a full scoop on a fairly empty stomach and I felt a rush similar to caffeine, but with less anxiety and/or jitters. If you’re contemplating buying this, do it. It’s cheap and works great.”
“How Do I Take It? I Don’t Want to Give Up Coffee!”
No need to give up anything. Mushroom extracts work well with coffee!
You can blend the extracts into your morning coffee or tea, or add it to your morning smoothie .
Mushroom extracts have a slight earthy flavour if you take the extracts on their own, but the taste of coffee tends to overpower it.
CM Mom Says:
“I have been using this on a regular basis for 5 months now and can definitely tell a difference. I put it in my coffee every morning; it blends right in and I detect no taste. I have noticed that it keeps my brain sharp, as in names are much easier to recall, when I am using than when I skip a few days. I also have managed to stay healthy throughout the whole flu season with nary a sniffle.”
“How Do I Know the Mushroom Extracts Work? “
Mushrooms affect each person differently. Most mushrooms like lion’s mane and cordyceps are adaptogens, meaning they tailor their effects to your body’s stress-related needs and deficiencies.
Pretty cool, huh?
Here are some effects our mushroom-powered community have reported:
- Needing less coffee during the day
- Feeling more focused and calmer
- Consistent energy with no crash
- Better well-being overall
- Getting sick less
“I’ve been taking this for a week now and absolutely love it! I’ve cut my caffeine intake by more than half and have more energy than before. Not that jittery energy that caffeine gives you, but a calm consistent energy. I’m very ADD and get fog brain, but I’m much more focused at work. My job is a very fast pace and stressful and I’ve just been flying through my work days without feeling annoyed by customers.
I had my 16-year-old daughter who is ADD try it one morning, and I’ve noticed her putting it her tea every morning since. She is sold on it as well!”
“How Long Before I Experience the Effects?”
I recommend you use your blend or extract of choice daily for at least a couple of weeks. Many people have reported results in less time (lion’s mane users report immediate results), but certain extracts like Cordyceps and Reishi work best when they’re taken consistently over time.
Laura L. Says:
“I just wanted to share with you and any others who may be considering your product, that I love the way I feel even after just this first month. I use it in my morning coffee , there is no taste that I can detect and ….while it’s not hugely noticeable there us a subtle heightened ” awareness” I receive. Where before I might have gone for a second cup of coffee, I no longer feel the need. My focus is clear, sharper and seems to stay that way through most of the day. There is absolutely no crash, it seems to just gradually decrease by the end of my day. I can’t find anything other than positive feedback for this product and want to say Thank You once again”
“How Long Will One TUB Last Me?”
We recommend you take 1 gram per day of a specific extract. Since a tub is 60 grams, each one will last you at least 2 months.
Mollie K. Says:
“Each mushroom serves a different health benefit and when combined you’ve got this super team, ready to go in and health-ify your whole body.”
“What are the Risks to Trying Mushrooms?”
As with any health supplement, take mushrooms in moderation.
While mushrooms are generally regarded as safe, if you plan on treating specific medical conditions or if you have specific medical issues, be sure to check with a medical professional first.
Oh and, if you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, or have low blood pressure, I recommend you hold off on taking mushrooms.

“FreshCap makes blends that set them aside from the rest, creating a wide variety for people to choose from, making it more appealing. I needed a daily boost for my immunity, and something to help me feel less foggy when I wake up. I sit at a desk and stare at a computer for 40 hours a week, and starting my morning off with a mushroom scoop in my coffee truly does do the trick! I’ve tried [FreshCap’s] THRIVE 6 and Lion’s Mane, which for the price, [have] lasted me for months! It’s well worth your money, and you will notice results if you are consistent. I’ve spread the word about FreshCap to my friends and coworkers, showing them that there are holistic, natural ways to help our bodily systems work to their full potential. I’m so glad I gave this product a try–you should too! 🙂 I’ll stop preaching about mushroom coffee when pigs fly.
