How Mushrooms Can Save Our Mental Health This Winter

How Mushrooms Can Save Our Mental Health This Winter

Winter is coming.

For some, this means holiday cookies, snuggling up by the fireplace, and sharing the season with friends and family. For others, the turning of the clock, earlier nights and cold weather is a time to brace for.

It's no surprise that the cold weather brings challenges to upkeeping your mental health and overall wellbeing, and figuring out the right supplements to keep you going can be a daunting process.

We've got a full breakdown of WonderGummies and their positive impacts on mental health to help you take on the winter season and put your energy towards celebrating with those you love.

WonderDay

We call it the "mushroom multi" for a reason- if you're in need of all-around support this winter, WonderDay has you covered in more ways than one. With ten different functional mushrooms packed into one gummy, WonderDay can help boost mood, energy, and immunity, as well as lower your stress levels.

How it Works

  • Lion's Mane: This shaggy shroom helps to boost cognitive function and focus in the short term, all while fostering new neuron connections that protect your brain's health in the long-term. Not only that, but Lion's Mane has also been studied to reduce anxiety and depression, making it the perfect non-jittery focus boost for everyday use.
  • Chaga: One of nature's best antioxidants, the chaga mushroom works overtime to boost your immunity during the cold and flu season. In the long term, chaga can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, keeping your heart healthy for years to come. 
  • Turkey Tail: Another immune boosting mushroom to keep you protected this cold season, Turkey Tail works like no other to protect your gut health. While you’re indugling on your favorite holiday treats, Turkey Tail works overtime to lower inflammation and protect your gut while you make merry and eat… well, turkey!
  • Reishi: Studies show that 66% of people report feeling more stressed out during the holiday season. Enter the Reishi Mushroom- a de-stressing shroom that works to relax your central nervous system short-term, all while boosting your long-term resistance to stress. While Reishi is non-drowsy, the mushroom can also aid in better sleep as it calms your nervous system and reduces anxiety, allowing you to take on your day rested and stress-free.
  • Cordyceps: The Cordyceps Mushroom also provides a boost of non-jittery energy by helping the body produce the molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which delivers energy to the muscles. This powerhouse not only boosts focus, but athletic performance as well, as it moves oxygen through your body to reduce fatigue and boost your overall vitality. 

Check out WonderDay to dive into five more functional mushrooms that help you get through your busy day.

WonderFocus

When it gets dark this early, workdays can feel like a never ending battle to keep focused while maintaining healthy habits. WonderFocus is formulated with both mushrooms and herbs to keep you awake, cognitive, and driven to deliver on even your toughest battles, whether it’s a big presentation or your next family gathering.

How It Works

  • Lion’s Mane: Lion’s Mane is our number one player in keeping you focused, but not anxious, as you brave the workday. While you’ve got your daily boost, you can work rest-assured that every day, your brain is growing even stronger than the day before.
  • Cordyceps: Not only does Cordyceps boost your oxygen levels to your brain, we love taking WonderFocus during physical activities, as the mushroom also boosts your athletic performance by pumping up your muscles.
  • Vitamins B6 & B12: These quintessential vitamins not only boost your immunity, they also help convert fat into energy, in turn protecting you from anemia or other deficiencies. 
  • Alpha GPC: This fatty acid is a memory booster like no other. Taking Alpha GPC increases acetylcholine in the brain, which plays an important role in learning functions and short-term and long-term memory. 
  • Green Tea: Not only does green tea provide a natural boost of caffeine, it also contains antioxidants that help with immunity, inflammation, and fat burning, making it a perfect addition to your workday or workout.

Check out WonderFocus to get the energy you need to take on the busy days.

WonderCalm

 

 

Need something to take the edge off of a busy day, or looking to reduce your daily anxiety? WonderCalm is our favorite non-drowsy, relaxing blend of mushrooms and herbs to keep you cool this holiday season. 

How It Works

  • Reishi Mushroom: This mushroom provides non-drowsy anxiety relief by targeting and reducing your central nervous system’s reactions to stress, making it perfect for small or large doses, depending on your needs.
  • Ashwagandha: One of the most popular adaptogens in modern and ancient medicine, Ashwagandha supports your stress response by reducing cortisol levels and blood pressure. It’s also commonly used in the fitness community to increase muscle development and strength post-physical activity.
  • Rhodiola Rosea: Another adaptogen versed in reducing stress and boosting your body’s resistance to stress overtime, Rhodiola has been shown to improve symptoms of burnout in those with chronic stress issues. It can also improve your stamina and reduce overarching fatigue issues.
  • L-Theanine: Commonly consumed in green tea, L-theanine works to improve your mood as well as reducing stress. At the end of the day, taking L-theanine can not only reduce your waking stress, but also improves sleep quality, thereby keeping you cool, calm, and collected for the following days.

Check out WonderCalms to get the relaxation you need this holiday season.

WonderGreens

 

 

Does “seasonal depression” ring any bells? With the turning of the clocks and the earlier setting of the sun, it’s no surprise that many people report it harder to tackle the day than in the warmer months. Not only do WonderGreens support your gut health, but in turn can help maintain your mental health this winter.

How It Works

  • Spirulina: One of the oldest life forms on earth, Spirulina has been praised as an endurance-booster and one of the most nutrient dense foods you can consume. Not only will this protect your gut, but it’ll slightly boost your energy levels to tackle the day.
  • Moringa: Another nutrient-dense food, moringa packs an energizing punch without the caffeine, as well as providing antioxidants and other anti-inflammatory properties to boost your gut health. 
  • Spinach, Broccoli, and Kale: Three greens that we may not love to eat, but can’t live without. In just two gummies, you’re getting 100% of your daily Iron, Niacin, and Thiamin, which keep your gut healthy and happy.
  • Vitamin D3: The MVP of the cold season. When the sun is tucked away, getting Vitamin D is quintessential in our mental and physical wellbeing, providing immune support, nerve health, and of course, a positive mood. It also takes two months to really kick in, so we recommend starting ASAP to keep happy throughout the winter.

Try WonderGreens to get the essential nutrients your body needs to keep your gut and your mental health in tip-top shape.

WonderSleep

 

Sleep is a non-negotiable when talking about mental health. We spend a third of our lives asleep, and the other two-thirds being propelled by sleep! WonderSleep helps you fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up rested (not groggy) and prepared to take on the day.

How It Works

  • Reishi Mushroom: The MVP for relaxing your nervous system before you go to sleep. It might not induce sleep, but Reishi prepares your body to fall into a deep sleep.
  • Saffron: A rare botanical that's been on the rise, saffron is clinically proven to support deep sleep and improved mood. Just 30mg can promote better sleep habits, so we've doubled down and added 60mg per serving.
  • GABA: Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a neurotransmitter, and already exists in your body, just like melatonin. GABA works to slow your brain's firing to your central nervous and motor system, producing a calming effect that works to promote deep sleep without tossing and turning.
  • Corydalis: Suffering from insomnia? You may be familiar with corydalis, an herb that helps induce sleep and helps you wake up without grogginess and other "hangover" symptoms.

If you're looking for a melatonin-free sleep aid, WonderSleep might be your missing link.
