The whole story started in the Nordic countries in 2012. Meanwhile, the pioneering products of the company spreaded in 25 countries in a few years. That is not a quotidian resultate! In 2014, the business repositioned it’s headquarters to the USA, where the invention was introduced in January 2015.
Since then the guys came a long way. Four Sigmatic is still a small startup company owned by a few employees, who are enthusiastic and persistent enough to keep on procuring changes in global health.
Tero Isokauppila’s invention, mushroom coffee revolutionizes the coffee industry. His company, Four Sigmatic claims that the beverage made from medicinal mushrooms stimulates brain activity and productivity – without the harmful side effects of real coffee.
Dried extract of Tricholoma matsutake and soft Central American Arabica coffee beans are added to the wonder coffee.
Mushroom and health?
Does it sound a little bit strange? Mushrooms in conjunction with health? Believe it or not, mushrooms are among the most researched health foods. Actually mushrooms had a huge effect on the well-being of the Western world, in spite of the fact that many people do not realize at all the essential role this super fungi played in the amelioration of our healthcare system.
Did you know that approximately 40 % of Western prescriptions uses mushrooms, together with penicillin? Dozens of studies have been performed and many articles were written to confirm their unbelievable capabilities. Namely, one single mushroom occured in 1,100 papers, while we identify more than 10000 varieties in the USA and Canada only.
Despite all these only a few people consume these super mushrooms, so even tiny quantities could result in noteworthy health improvements. In fact, mushrooms were regarded suspiciously, and many prejudices were alive among the last few generations, even though they are appropriate to many types of diet, including Paleo and vegan.
Maybe it’s already time to be more open towards the fungis and we should return to our roots. Aboriginal people were more aware of the beneficial effects of different mushrooms and they cleverly integrated them into their diets for milleniums. Since survival was a more central topic in those days, their wisdom dealt a lot with health, thus mushrooms were important.
And what are the beneficial effects of mushroom?
But how did the idea of healthy café pop out of the inventor’s head? Probably it was the consequence of the high coffee consummation in Finland. The hot black drink can help in overcoming Parkinson’s disease and depression, but if a lot is consumed, it can cause insomnia and anxiety.
According to Tero, fungi are very effective in the struggle against things like that, and it can even control your blood sugar levels. Moreover, mushroom coffees are less acidic than the real coffee.
Chaga reduces inflammation and regulates blood glucose. The cordyceps restores tone. It stimulates natural defenses and physical strength. It is therefore good to consume in capsules if you want to improve your sporting performances. Reishi, for its part, regulates blood pressure, stimulates brain function and prevents cardiovascular accidents. And finally, lion’s mane stimulates memory, helps reduce anxiety and depression, improves concentration and fights against brain degeneration.
The Finnish manufacturer claims that the special concoction provides the necessary caffeine stroke, but later we won’t be upset and exhausted. In addition, sleeping will not cause a problem if we drink a lot of coffee on that day.
Four Sigmatic, the coffee producer, promises that the mushroom coffee will rev your body up and the brain as well. Moreover, the tasters say that the flavor of the mushroom coffee is not bizarre at all… It is rather like a blend of herbal tea and a coffee. This drink is already regarded as some kind of super drink.
