Magical Mushrooms [Post Workout]

I just got back from one of the hardest workouts of my life. I tried a Bari Fitness class at their new studio here in Newport Beach (highly recommend). I rarely get the chance to actually take a class since I'm always teaching so it was a real treat. However, I can already feel my muscles getting sore, which is great except I have to teach in a few hours... yikes.

In search of something to boost my energy and help my muscles recover I remembered that I was recently sent some samples of (obviously organic) mushroom powder by Mushroom Matrix. Have you heard that mushrooms can help with everything from recovery to stamina to beauty? I hadn't. Well, I've done some investigating and here's what I found about our magical mushrooms (they really are super).

Shitake, Cordyceps and Reishi mushrooms have been shown to...

  • Strength & Endurance: Cordyceps increase ATP production... which gives us energy and help build our muscles!  
  • Anti-Aging (ok, yes please!)
  • Boost Immunity
  • Antitumor
  • Antidepressant
  • Increases Blood flow
  • Anti- Inflammatory
  • Excellent source of Vitamin D

And even more! I have to ask myself, why aren't I taking this stuff everyday?! Well this week I've been adding it to my Greens First and I'm starting to reap the benefits. With zero flavor, I've got nothing to lose! Have you tried mushroom powders yet? If so, have you noticed a difference?
