Lion's Mane

Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha is perhaps the most well-known herb in Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India. It has a long list of benefits, but goes great with coffee thanks to its anxiety-melting, zen-like effect; a perfect complement to caffeine.

The science: Ashwagandha contains compounds called Sitoindosides and acylsterylglucosides, which have been shown to significantly reduce stress and anxiety. Ashwaganhda has also been shown to reduces levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, in adults.

We like Ashwaganhda because it reduces jitters and that overly-stimulated, “I-had-way-too-much-caffeine” feeling.

"The findings suggest that ashwagandha safely & effectively improves resistance towards stress."

"Caffeine and L-Theanine, when combined, reduce most symptoms of mental fatigue."

- Science Direct

L-Theanine

L-theanine is the superhero behind our second favorite beverage: tea. This amino acid stimulates alpha brain wave activity and promotes the natural synthesis of serotonin.

The science: L-theanine promotes the release of 3 "feel-good" hormones: Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), dopamine, and serotonin. These hormones work in the brain to regulate emotions, mood, concentration, alertness, and sleep.

We like L-Theanine because it balances out the scatterbrained caffeine feeling with an "alert calm" that helps with productivity, thoughtfulness and overall mood.

Maca

This root has been used for over 2,000 years in its native Peru. Maca is renowned for its notable effect on energy, mental clarity, and mood.

The science: Maca is a nutrition powerhouse. It contains Vitamin C, Copper, Iron, Potassium, Vitamin B6, Manganese, among other nutrients. Studies have shown that consumption of Maca leads to increased stamina.

We like Maca because it delivers a more natural energy to complement the caffeine rush, which helps avoid a crash.

"Taking Maca as a supplement may help boost energy levels, reduce anxiety, and enhance athletic performance."

"Ginger exerts a variety of powerful therapeutic and preventive effects on the gastrointestinal tract."

Ginger

Ginger is widely used for its ability to protect the stomach from nausea and acidity. Coffee is acidic (~5pH), so ginger helps promote healthy digestion.

The science: Like Maca and Ashwagandha, Ginger is a nutrient-dense root. Ginger contains phenolic compounds, which can ease stomach irritation.

As much as we love coffee, it’s hard to deny the toll that a venti can have on the gut. If you've ever used Ginger Ale to ease an upset stomach, you know that ginger is the best, most tried-and-true natural remedy out there.
