For some of us, coffee has and always will be part of our every day staples. Hey boo, no judgement! But what if there were a way to add a few extra ingredients to the mix every day to give your bod an insane amount of high-vibe goodness with that coffee? Here are three of our favorite ways to boost that buzz!


Chaga & Reishi Mushroom Powders
As we all know, coffee can be a pretty acidic drink. Mushroom extracts and powders like chaga, reishi, and Lion's Mane are highly alkaline-forming which can help reduce the acidity and enhance the taste for a smoother brew. Not only that, but these specific varieties of mushrooms are well known for their brain-boosting properties and regenerative effects on your nervous system. Double plus. And if you're worried about taste, these powdered blends are very similar in taste to actual coffee so you won't be compromising any flavor! Your local Whole Foods should carry a variety of powdered versions of these shrooms and a lot of times offer smaller sample packs for purchase from certain brands for you to give them a try before investing in a larger amount.


MCT Oil & Grass-Fed Ghee
You may have heard of, and possibly even tried, Bulletproof Coffee by now. Bulletproof coffee uses the magical benefits from the MCT oil and ghee to help you feel full, focused, and more sustainably energized than you would from just coffee alone. MCTs are so important because they are digested easily and sent directly to your liver where it's burned as fuel instead of being stored as fat. They're also known to improve your mood, balance hormone levels, and aid in digestion. Ghee has very similar benefits and effects, and is commonly used to help fight heart disease. Both are commonly found at most health food stores at an affordable price and you just want to add them to your hot coffee via blender for a smooth, frothy cup of goodness.


Ashwagandha Root Powder
Ashwagandha is one of the most powerful herbs in Ayurvedic healing for its magical restorative benefits. It helps protect the immune system, combat stress, improve learning and memory, reduce anxiety and depression, reduce brain-cell degeneration, stabilize blood sugar, boost energy, and reduce inflammation. Seriously amazing, right? It's also an adaptogenic herb which means through the combination of amino acids, vitamins, and herbs it can help your body cope with external stresses like environmental toxins and internal stresses like anxiety and insomnia. It's a relatively affordable powder that you can find at your local Whole Foods and add half a teaspoon to your regular morning brew for an insane amount of health benefits. Oh, baby!


So next time you're thinking about grabbing a cup to-go, skip the drive-thru line and whip up a much more healing and delicious cup at home and give that bod some extra lovin'!
