When someone talks about “superfoods,” what they mean is a food with high levels of essential vitamins and minerals as well as helpful antioxidants that help to protect the body from disease. Some of the most talked about superfoods include kale, salmon and avocados, but one company in particular wants to spread the word of the health benefits of mushrooms, which are said to include things like immunity and increased energy. Four Sigmatic harnesses the healthy properties of mushrooms by making powders and elixirs for drinking mushrooms.
In an interview with Vogue, the founder of the company, Tero Isokauppila, explained how he grew up picking mushrooms with his mother in his native Finland, and only learned about their medicinal properties later. From there he got the idea to start adding mushrooms to his morning coffee, thereby adding some nourishment to his morning caffeine kick. Today Four Sigmatic’s mushroom-infused beverages are incredibly popular in the wellness space.
