Mushrooms and athletic performance.

But we wanted to show you why Mushrooms should be part of your pre workout if you are looking to take your performance to the next level.

 

 

Why do I hit the wall?

Those days when you feel capable of anything? When your energy, stamina and focus are tuned in and you perform at the top of your game ?

The biggest difference between these capable of anything days and an average day is rarely your body: it’s your mind. Do your research any one who plays competitive sports or has pushed themselves as far as they can possibly go physically (we are looking at you David Goggins) understands that peak performance has just as much to do with your mental state as your physical one. 




So how can Mushrooms help performance ?

What supplements to use for sports performance , must be one of commonly asked questions by athletes and sports folk alike, and we guarantee top of that list of recommendations are Nootropics, with good reason too.

Lion's Mane mushroom contains high amounts of a compound called β-glucan polysaccharides and is also rich in lectins, proteins, lipids, hericenone, erinacine and terpenoids. This is basically everything an athlete needs for top performance. These compounds are responsible for many of the health benefits associated with lion’s mane such as fatigue reduction, increased cognitive function, inflammation reduction, improved gut health, and immune health.

  • Improves concentration, focus, and overall cognitive function.
  • Reduces inflammation and recovery time.
  • Accelerates fat metabolism.

While in the gym, on the field of play, (or even the classroom), Lion’s Mane can boost memory and recall, while at the same time increasing one’s ability to focus and pay attention to the task(s) at hand.


Chaga mushroom has been found to have a positive effect on sports performance, helping to support stamina and endurance by supporting oxygen flow. Chaga is also one of the most antioxidant rich foods on the planet, and helps to stimulate the most powerful antioxidant in the body, Superoxide Dismutase, which helps to protect against oxidative stress. Exercise, especially intense or long duration forms, creates a lot of free-radicals in the body which can cause damage, and Chaga mushroom with it’s antioxidant powers can help to combat this.

All medicinal mushrooms are rich in Beta-glucans which help to modulate the immune system and ensure we are able to fight off any coughs, colds and infections. Heavy training can affect our immune system function, leaving us run down and susceptible to infections, but medicinal mushrooms can help us to fight inflammation and ensure our immune system is working correctly.

In order to build muscle, strength, or speed, you need nutrition for your body. This means not just calories for fuel, but also a large range of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to supply your body with the building blocks it needs to be healthy.

Chaga has a wide range of antioxidants, b vitamins, and minerals to help give you energy and help your body be as healthy as possible.

Perhaps one of its most important vitamins is vitamin D. Mushrooms like chaga are one of the only good natural sources of vitamin D, outside of fatty fish. Even milk is fortified with vitamin D, or it wouldn't be a good source.
