Vegan Broth Recipe
Mushrooms have been taking over the scene in the health world lately, and for good reason. As humans, we share almost half of our genetic makeup with mushrooms. Thus, we can easily take advantage of the special immune-enhancing benefits and other survival methods that they build for themselves. With 5.1 million fungi species its hard to tell which are the best to consume and for what purposes.
Tero Isokauppila is the founder of the brand Four Sigmatic which makes mushroom consumption easy and accessible. He focuses on the following four mushrooms as being medicinal powerhouses:
Reishi for calm body & mind.
Better sleep and lower cortisol.
Cordyceps for energy & recovery.
Helps your body respond to stress and gives you sustained energy rather than a spike.
Chaga for immunity.
One of highest sources of antioxidants.
Lions Mane for brain power.
Improves memory, boosts creativity, and helps with concentration.
To ensure you are getting the most out of your mushrooms, Tero suggests a premade dried blend of mushrooms. You can add it to your smoothies, coffee, salads, etc.
Below is a vegan broth recipe using the Four Sigmatic 10 mushroom blend.
This recipe is good for your gut, full of vitamins and minerals and lots of warming and grounding ingredients which makes it perfect for dinner when you've stuffed yourself all day with cookies.
