I found out about these two mushrooms from a podcast of Tim Ferriss. He has tried just about every substance on the planet to become more productive and recommends both of these mushrooms highly for good energy and focus without the jitters (like coffee). However, I didn’t like his brands because they were too expensive.
These two options are high quality and not as pricey. Both are generally awesome for students and others who work long hours.
For a boost in focus and memory, check out Lion’s Mane Mushroom Extract 10:1 Superfood Powder by Wild Foods. It’s very high quality and dissolves very easily, unlike a lot of brands. The flavor is very mild and pleasant.
I use about a teaspoon but you might want to start with a half a teaspoon. I find it also makes me more creative, but your, mileage may vary.
For good energy and long productive sessions, try Chaga Mushroom Extract 10:1, also by Wild Foods.
This extract also dissolves well and has a mild, pleasant taste. I use about a teaspoon but you might want to start with a half a teaspoon.
Sometimes I mix the two together for an extra boost 😀
