Los-Angeles wellness company Four Sigmatic has introduced a gut-friendly coffee that is blended with functional mushrooms, probiotics and prebiotics.
Mushroom Ground Coffee with Probiotics claims to offer a complete wellness brew with the same brew taste, which is easier to digest compared to traditional coffee.
The product is made with a base of Fair-Trade 100% Organic Arabica Coffee from Guatemala, blended with Turkey Tail and Chaga functional mushrooms and 1 billion CFU of heat resistant probiotics and prebiotics from yacon.
According to Four Sigmatic, the Bacillus subtilis probiotic strain used in the coffee can endure temperatures as high as boiling water and persist through stomach acid, making it an ‘ideal shelf-stable probiotic to support any morning routine’.
“Coffee is consumed by more than 62% of Americans, so we always strive to offer better-for-you options at Four Sigmatic,” said Tero Isokauppila, founder and CEO of Four Sigmatic.
He added: “Our coffee, including our newest Mushroom Ground Coffee with Probiotics, works for the immune and digestive systems rather than against them, with functional mushrooms to offset the potential negative impacts drinking normal coffee has on the body.”
The new product joins Four Sigmatic’s existing line of coffees including Instant and Ground Mushroom Coffee with Lion’s Mane and Instant and Ground Adaptogen Coffee, which are available in 55 countries and sold at national retailers throughout the US.
