Mushroom Coffee- Worth the Hype?

In case you haven’t heard, mushroom coffee is the latest health trend hitting the shelves of all of the health and nutrition stores here in Vancouver. Along with the effect of caffeine, mushroom coffee aims to add more health benefits for avid coffee drinkers.

The coffee is a combination of instant coffee grounds and mushroom extracts. These mushroom ingredients have been known to include antioxidants, improve immune, liver, and diabetic health. Also, as each packet only holds 40mg (compared 65-95mg in an average cup of coffee), the drink is advertised to help with focus, but prevent the often post-coffee jitters.

The girls of Le Physique filmed a little taste test, and as you can tell, we weren’t entirely convinced!
