Chinese Cordyceps (Cordyceps sinesnsis), or cordyceps, is a species of fungus with significant biological activity and health-promoting properties. It’s a raw material belonging to adaptogens - compounds that increase the body's resistance to stress factors, especially helpful in physical and mental stress. Cordyceps has proven immunostimulating properties. It stimulates T lymphocytes, macrophages and NK cells, resulting in increased immunity and immune response of the body to pathogens. The cordycepine present in the fungus exhibits anti-tumour, antioxidant and antidiabetic potential.
Cordyceps affects the acceleration of metabolism and improvement of physical fitness. Increases ATP and cAMP levels by activating AMPK kinase and blocking receptors for ATP by cordycepin. The increase in the level of these molecules involved in almost every metabolic process, improves the efficiency of the organism, increases glycolysis and lipolysis, and increases the energy level. In addition, it has been shown that aquatic cortex extracts accelerate the adaptation of cells to a low oxygen level, increasing oxygen consumption and lung performance, which may improve physical fitness. Cordyceps can also stimulate testosterone synthesis in the testes and reduce cortisol levels.
Inonotus obliquus, i.e. the chaga mushroom, is a species of fungus exhibiting primarily immunomodulatory, antioxidant and strengthening properties. Chaga contains significant amounts of β-glucan, which stimulates the production of leukocytes, affecting the increase of immunity. Chaga, as an immunomodulator, stimulates the activity of the immune system in states of reduced immunity and at the same time can silence the excessive immune response observed in the course of autoimmune diseases. Chaga also contains superoxide dismutase (SOD), an enzyme with a strong antioxidant activity. It thus supports the reduction of oxidative stress and the slowing of aging processes.
Siberian ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus), is a plant species with adaptogenic properties. The research revealed pro-cognitive, antidepressant and immunostimulating properties of the eleutherococcus extract. This plant positively influences the cerebral circulation and protects neurons from oxidative stress, which translates into a better supply of neurons to nutrients, improvement of thought processes, memory and concentration. Siberian ginseng also has a positive and stabilizing effect on the mood, especially in stressful situations. Eleutherococon is an ideal product for athletes. The studies have shown that it affects the increase of physical fitness and improvement of training parameters. Indirectly, this plant also increases sexual performance.
Caffeine is a purine alkaloid that occurs primarily in coffee beans. It has a stimulating effect on the central nervous system and stimulates metabolism. Caffeine is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, where it inhibits adenosine receptors, which results in the abolition of feelings of fatigue and tiredness, stimulation, restoration of mental clarity and increased concentration. In addition, caffeine is a phosphodiesterase inhibitor, resulting in increased levels of cAMP and prolonging the action of catecholamines. It probably also increases the secretion of such neurotransmitters as dopamine, serotonin and acetylcholine.
In conclusion, Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee Mix with Cordyceps & Chaga is a high quality product, recommended for everyday consumption, especially for athletes and physically active people, pre-workout, for people with a stressful lifestyle, mental work and periods of reduced immunity.

Calories are the conventional name of the unit expressing the energy value of food, the demand and energy expenditure in human body, which in fact is 1 kilocalorie (1 kcal). 1 kilocalorie is the amount of thermal energy required to heat 1 g of water and 1 degree Celsius. The SI unit of thermal energy is 1 joule (1J), equal to approximately 4,185 kcal.
The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents. Most often Atwater equivalent is used: ratio for protein 4 kcal / g, for carbohydrates 4kcal / g, and for fat - 9kcal / g.
The energy value carried out with the so-called. "Caloric bomb" is equivalent to the physical energy, amounting to 4.1 kcal per 1 g carbohydrate to 5.65 kcal per 1 g protein, 9.45 kcal per 1 g of fat.
Nutritional value, determines the suitability of a food product for realizing life functions of human, the higher it is - the higher bioavailability and lower quantity for consumption for obtaining the effects.
Caffeine (1,3,7-trimethylxanthine, 1-methylotheobromine) is a purine alkaloid occurring in the natural state in plants (Coffea arabica, Camelia sinensis, Paulinia cupana, Ilex paraguariensis), which acts as a natural pesticide, acting toxic to insects. Peculiar smell and taste also deters herbivores. Caffeine in the body inhibits the adenosine receptors in the brain, fighting fatigue and allowing for action activation. It has a beneficial effect on the metabolism of oxygen, which increases the exercise capacity (strength and endurance) and rapid post-workout recovery.
