This fun brand makes it so easy to enhance your wellness (and your skin)
I’d say I fall somewhere in the middle of the supplement spectrum… I’m usually incorporating some capsule or powder into my daily routine, but I’m hardly one of those who can’t get by without their daily adaptogen dose. But when I come across a unique way to give my body an extra superfood-boost, I’m all for trying it—and that’s what happened when I learned about Four Sigmatic. (And by the way, their cheeky copy and creative packaging is amongst the best I’ve seen in quite some time.)
When I was offered a chance to try a few of the latest and greatest from this mushroom-based, adaptogen-packed wellness brand, the first thing that caught my eye were the instant coffees. I figured these would be the easiest way to get my caffeine fix along with some extra benefits. The “Create” Mushroom Coffee Mix with Lion’s Mane and Chaga tastes just like the usual java I make at home, but I get the cognitive-enhancing effects of Lion’s Mane mushrooms, immunity-boosting Chaga mushrooms and rhodiola to support concentration and memory.
I’ve also been sipping on the Adaptogen Coffee Mix, and I really enjoy the subtle cinnamon kick. I’m also down with the mood-, digestion- and energy-balancing benefits of tulsi, along with ashwagandha (which I’ll never learn how to spell off the top of my head) to fight stress and fatigue. This blend also features eleuthero (Siberian ginseng) for stamina, endurance and overall well-being. One cup and I’m ready to tackle whatever may be next on my never-ending to-do list.
My Four Sigmatic package also included two other new products—the Superfood Serum and Mushroom Face Mask & Tonic—which I initially assumed were strictly skincare products. When I ultimately sat down to take a closer look, let’s just say my mind was blown. Yes, these products are designed to treat your skin to the benefits of magical mushrooms and more—BUT YOU CAN INGEST THEM, TOO. Yup, after you pat the hydrating serum’s blend of nutrient-packed oils onto your face, you can put four drops in your mouth. To use the powder-based face mask, simply mix with water, slap it on and give it 10 to 15 minutes to dry. While you’re waiting, fire up the kettle, mix with water and enjoy a warm, detoxifying drink. Talk about multitasking products!
To say that I’m obsessed with these offerings that have me covered inside and out is an understatement. Maybe I am becoming one of those “wellness supplement” people…
