RYZE Mushroom Coffee $36.00

About

RYZE Superfoods makes functional mushroom coffee with more health benefits and less than half the caffeine of a regular cup. By infusing arabica coffee beans with six types of organic medicinal mushrooms and MCT oil, the mushroom coffee by RYZE Superfoods is a proprietary blend that improves overall focus, physical performance, and immunity while fighting inflammation and promoting homeostasis. Despite its popularity, caffeine in regular coffee has been shown to heighten adrenaline spikes and cause anxiety, jitters, mood swings, and poor quality sleep. RYZE aims to redefine morning rituals by introducing consumers to the many health benefits of the adaptogens found in medicinal mushrooms.

Founding Story

In 2019, two Harvard graduates dedicated themselves to improving health by promoting healthier morning rituals. Drawing from personal experiences working with large, global brands and scientific expertise, RYZE Superfoods is committed to improving health by re-examining and redefining morning rituals through the use of adaptogens found in medicinal mushrooms. Co-founders Rashad and Andrée firmly believe that the consumption of delicious coffee infused with adaptogens and the slow release action of MCT oil is the first step to overall better health and lifestyle choices. During Rashad’s time managing many aspects of global coffee brands, he noticed that at least 50% of consumers suffered from caffeine-induced acid reflux, jitters, and anxiety. After much research, Rashad and Andrée came to the conclusion that despite their incredibly powerful health benefits, holistic ingredients such as adaptogens found in mushrooms and MCT oil were simply too limited in relation to large-scale production and distribution. The two started testing their own blends of adaptogen-infused coffee and successfully transformed their ideation to commercialization within 6 months. Today, RYZE provides their passionate health-oriented audience with the highest quality adaptogen-infused and keto-friendly coffee.
