ENERGIZER Om Cordyceps
A sprinkle of ’shrooms will give any smoothie a superfood edge. Widespread in Eastern medicine, medicinal mushrooms are just recently becoming commonplace in North America – so much so that you’ll see them popping up in everything from drinks like smoothies and lattes to baked goods. While there are many varieties of mushrooms each with various effects, cordyceps is especially suited to a morning or pre-workout smoothie because of its energizing properties. In fact, a 2010 study in the Journal of Complementary Medicine showed that supplementation with cordyceps in older adults improved exercise performance. This particular brand is fermented, which helps increase digestibility. $25, ommushrooms.com
