The Lesson: You may have been hearing some buzz lately about the “stunning” health benefits of drinking beverages that are made from mushrooms – but how much of those rave reviews is actually accurate? This nutritionist tackles the subject head-on and explains the possible myths, pros, and cons of buying into the mushroom coffee craze.

Notable Excerpt: “Most of these studies [on mushroom coffee] have not been replicated or confirmed by subsequent trials. So, the science is still somewhat unsettled. That leaves us with anecdotal evidence, and we are certainly not lacking in that. Many people say that after drinking these beverages, they feel remarkably energized, focused, or calm. They sleep better, they work better, they feel better. How much of that is due to good old-fashioned placebo effect?”
