Coffee empowered with functional mushrooms, nootropics and adaptogens.

Some questions answered

What are adaptogens, nootropics and functional mushrooms?


Nootropics are supplements which can improve cognitive functions in healthy people. So this means they can support such things as memory, creativity, focus or mood - anything that's brain related.

Adaptogens on the other hand are plant extracts which support your body in adapting to and dealing with the stresses and strains of daily life. They can support both mental and physical responses to stress and help relax mind and body. They can also help to relieve fatigue and boost your immune system.

Some mushrooms can be considered as adaptogens while others are nootropics and some are both. Given their benefits they are often referred to in their own category as functional mushrooms.

You can read about the individual mushrooms we use as well as all our other nootropics and adaptogens in our Benefits section.

What's the deal with mixing coffee with mushrooms and other extracts?


Nootropics and adaptogens from plant extracts and functional mushrooms have important potential benefits for physical and mental health, well-being and stress management.

Coffee is a daily habit for literally billions of people around the world and also boasts its own health benefits.

We believe empowering people's daily coffee with some of the most beneficial nootropics and adaptogens around is a practical and enjoyable way to get people to experience the benefits. Also, many of the nootropics and adaptogens pair perfectly with coffee enhancing coffee's benefits such as concentration and minimising some of its downsides such as crashes and jitters.

What should I expect from drinking Upraising coffee?


Depending on which Upraising coffee you are drinking, different nootropics and adaptogens with specific properties will be in action in your body.

Some benefits may be noticeable immediately after drinking a cup of coffee, but others will be cumulative. Some will not be noticeable at all, but will be working in the background. For example, the Live Well coffee will be supporting your immune system but it may take some time to realise that you haven't had a cold for a while.

Remember that everyone is different and reacts differently to nootropics and adaptogens. Given this, we recommend you to start drinking one cup of Upraising everyday for at least ten days and then see how you feel. Then you can get 1 to 3 cups a day and alternate different coffees if you like.

Oh, and don't worry, You won't get high! These are not psychedelic mushroom, but they are magic in their own way.
