Do you LOVE your morning coffee? Do you want to switch to the healthiest coffee in the world?
If you missed this post where I introduced Reishi Spore (aka Ganoderma), then be sure to check it out because it has tons of info including what it is, the endless benefits and how to buy it! Today’s post includes my recipe for my morning Reishi Spore aka Vegan Ganoderma Latte as well as a FAQ section because I know you probably have LOTS of questions. I did too. This KING coffee makes a lot of big claims, but it really lives up to them. It’s acts as a software upgrade for the body.
First up, Frequently Asked Questions!!
How is this coffee different from other mushroom coffees? Can’t I just take reishi mushroom powder?
Sure you could, but you want to make sure the sourcing is legit. I’ve learned that reishi spores are the most important and most potent part of the mushroom and no other company has the patent to do what Organo does. A lot of companies take shortcuts. They will grow reishi in artificial plastic bags and not on logs as they were intended. The strength and potency from other reishi powders I’ve tried doesn’t even compare.
As far as other mushroom/coffee brands – most people will not notice or feel a difference until they use the Organo reishi spore product. Not to mention some other mushroom coffees out there taste like mushroom soup! Yuck! The KING Coffee tastes like rich premium coffee with no mushroom taste whatsoever. You won’t find anything like it because of the patent they have for the harvesting process which I talked all about in this post.
I thought coffee was bad for hormones?
I know I’ve talked about how caffeine is no bueno for hormones. I know I have caffeine-free latte recipes on this blog. I know I talk about it constantly and this might seem counterproductive. I know! BUT, reishi is an adaptogen and these reishi spores in particular cancel out the negative effects of caffeine, meaning no blood sugar spike, no cortisol spike, no jitters, no anxiety, no sleep disruption, no headache, no dehydration and no negative effects on hormones – it’s quite the opposite actually and the reishi works to BALANCE hormones and hormone-related conditions.
Just a calm, focused and steady energy with no crash. I know. It sounds to good to be true and if it was, I wouldn’t be sharing it. This stuff is LEGIT. If coffee isn’t your thing they also have hot chocolate (not vegan though) or tea BUT only the KING Coffee (and the spore powder) have the actual spores, which is the most beneficial part for healing the body and bringing it back into homeostasis. Also, the only coffee that is organic is KING coffee.
I can’t have coffee for health reasons.
I couldn’t either before trying KING Coffee. I used to get jitters and headaches and it would spike my cortisol which made my hormones a mess. But this coffee doesn’t do that because the reishi spores cancel out the negative effects that normal caffeine has. You just have to try it for yourself. There are many testimonies where people said the same thing but they can drink this coffee and actually feel better because it brings the body back into homeostasis. This allows your body to do the healing it needs to do. The reishi spores act as the driver and offer body intelligence. It’s the healthiest coffee in the world! I will say the only coffee in the Organo product line that has the reishi spores is the KING Coffee (and also the spore powder if you’re still concerned about the coffee). Their other products contain other parts of the mushroom which are still great but not as beneficial.
Can I drink KING Coffee during Pregnancy/Breastfeeding/TTC?
It would be unethical to test on pregnant or breastfeeding women and I can’t make those claims. What I will say is that reishi is a FUNCTIONAL FOOD and protects the fetus. It’s not just another supplement. I will be drinking this throughout my entire TTC journey, pregnancy and breastfeeding experiences. There are many claims that it helps with milk production as well. You have to decide for yourself and be your own advocate because I highly doubt your doctor knows anything about the benefits of Ganoderma even though it has been used for thousands of years… just sayin’! Now when I do get pregnant, I will probably drink only 1 cup of KING coffee per day and then add in the spore powder capsules to get the benefits!
I’ve heard its toxic long term.
I feel like you read this on google lol. Again, reishi is a healing, functional food. That’s like saying pineapple is toxic long term. It just doesn’t make sense! I want this food in my life for the long term.
Does it help with X, Y, or Z symptom?
I don’t know if it will help what whatever symptom you are experiencing, but it sure won’t hurt! The reishi doesn’t heal x, y or z symptom, your body does. What reishi does is bring your body into a balanced state which allows your own body to heal itself and do the work it needs. So it could help and I absolutely believe it’s worth a try. At least give it 30 days of drinking the KING coffee exclusively or taking the spore powder and see how you feel because again, it doesn’t hurt.
Research has shown a wide range of benefits with no known contraindications or drug interactions. There is no known toxicity level of Ganoderma meaning you can take as much as you want…. like bottles worth and nothing bad will happen! In fact, you may heal even faster haha. (There are testimonies of people doing this).
Why is it instant coffee? Why is it in an individual sachet?
I actually love how it’s instant coffee because I don’t have to brew coffee anymore! I just pour the sachet into my coffee cup and pour hot water over it (I bought this hot water kettle.) Then I froth some plant milk and have the most delicious cup of coffee in no time. The KING Coffee is in individual sachets to ensure you get the same therapeutic dose of reishi spores in every cup. It’s also portable and travel friendly this way because all you need is hot water. It’s actually genius.
Isn’t it dehydrating?
Normal coffee is dehydrating and requires 17 cups of water for every regular cup of coffee. But with the added reishi spores, it’s more pH neutral so you aren’t having to balance and counterbalance meaning you won’t have to overcompensate with extra water. I do not find it dehydrating at all… but I do still drink my normal amount of water with added minerals.Print
