Let me tell you, before doing some research; I had no idea what adaptogens were…heck I could barely spell them. Recently I learned about Four Sigmatic Adaptogens. If you are like me, you may have no idea what Adaptogens are and if you should take that kind of supplement.
So first: What is Four Sigmatic? What does the phrase even mean?
The name “Four Sigmatic” means comes from four sigmas or four standard deviations above the average food. Four Sigmatic foods are the most nutrient-dense, most studied foods on the planet. There are only about 100 foods that fall into this category. Some include:
What about the Brand Four Sigmatic?
Four Sigmatic originally began in Finland but moved to Los Angeles. It is one of the leading companies in the mushroom supplement space. Four Sigmatic’s main products include Four Sigmatic Adaptogens, Four Sigmatic 10 Mushroom Blend, Four Sigmatic Ground Mushroom Coffee, or even Mushroom Cacao Mix. If you want to add the benefits of mushrooms into your diet but hate the taste, Four Sigmatic is a great option.
What are Functional Mushrooms?
What is the difference between “regular mushrooms” and functional mushrooms?
Most mushrooms you eat will have nutritional value, but functional mushrooms also provide benefits outside of their nutritional value like mood benefits, skin support, immunity, and even cognitive benefits.
A New Types of Functional Mushrooms: Lion’s Mane, Shiitake, Tremella, and Turkey Tail.
What are the Four Sigmatic Adaptogens?
First, what are adaptogens?
Adaptogens are herbal remedies that help reduce stress and anxiety. They are known and proven to help the body adapt to stress and reverse the symptoms we generally feel when stressed or anxious.
Right now, there are three different Four Sigmatic Adaptogens:
- Uses the mushroom Lion’s Mane
- Adaptogen Focus contains the following:
- Caffeine (roughly the same as 1 cup of green tea)
- rose hips (improves immune system)
- pineapple and lime juice (improves the immune system and taste)
- pink Himalayan salt (improves digestion)
- stevia leaf extract (taste)
- Like the name suggests, known to help boost productivity and cognitive function.
- High dose Tremella mushroom to retain moisture,
- Also contains:
- Zinc Citrate (general wellbeing)
- Biotin (for hair, skin, and nails)
- Organic Acerola Cherry Powder (200% of Vitamin C)
Each of the Four Sigmatic Adaptogens is all of the following:
- Gluten Free
- 1g of Sugar
- 3rd Party Tested
So enough about the Four Sigmatic Adaptogen Facts. How does it taste?
I decided to try the Adaptogen Samplers. It’s a combination of all three supplements by Four Sigmatic. Instead of a powder or capsule, it’s a liquid energy shot. Similar to Five Hour Energy shots.
These easy to take “shots” taste fruity. If you don’t like mushrooms, don’t fear because they don’t taste like mushrooms. In fact, I wouldn’t know they were made of mushrooms unless I read the package.
If purchased separately, boxes are normally $24. You can see by purchasing the Adaption Sampler, which would be $65 for all three. Do I find the pricing worth it? Four Sigmatic Adaptogens expensive, but they do what they claim. My body feels better when taking them.
Finally, there is a money-back guarantee so you can try them without worry.
Four Sigmatic Adaptogen Conclusion:
While more expensive, I think the Four Sigmatic Adaptogen Shots are valuable and worth it (I rarely say that about a supplement). I find myself feeling better when I use them. If you hate the taste of mushrooms but still want to get the benefits, I highly suggest Four Sigmatic Adaptogen Shots.
