Skip the sugary pre-workout drink and add Cordyceps Elixir to coffee or coconut water instead. Cordyceps are famous among endurance athletes all around the world. And life is a true endurance event.
Mix. Sip. Go.
Mix just with hot or cold water, or add to your coffee. Pre-workout we especially love it mixed in ice-cold coconut water.
No caffeine or extra energy added. You’ll have enough without that.
This isn’t a culinary mushroom taste. It’s tart and earthy. We’ve heard it likened to a berry tea.
1 Serving Per Day
"As a plant-based athlete I need every edge I can find to perform at my best and recover expeditiously. The term ‘superfood’ may be prone to exaggeration but I can honestly say that Four Sigma adaptogens and mushroom blends have been an integral and instrumental component of my success equation. Also a crucial and easy way to stay on top of my performance nutrition when traveling!” - Rich Roll (Ultra-Endurance Triathlete & Bestselling Author)
ORGANIC CORDYCEPS (1500MG PER SERVING)
Cordyceps are famous among endurance athletes all around the world. Studies show that it supports energy and endurance. The power comes from the fruiting body of Cordyceps militaris mushroom. In nature, it grows on caterpillars, but we love our multi-legged furry friends so we don’t use that kind. Ours are 100% vegan and cruelty free.
Also called wu wei zi, which means the fruit of the five flavors, and the name has been given for good reason. Its flavor is reported to deliver 5 experiences: sour, sweet, salty, bitter and pungent, all in the same taste experience, invigorating your body.
ORGANIC FIELD MINT & ROSE HIPS EXTRACT
To balance out the earthiness of Cordyceps, we add field mint and rose hips. While mint is a common ingredient, rose hips may feel a little foreign. We’ve always held these beautiful, deep red vitamin C bombs close to our heart. As kids, we used to play with the “itching powder” from the inside of these fruits and later on, we started eating them as a tasty roadside snack.
All Four Sigmatic ingredients are of the highest quality and constantly laboratory tested for heavy metals, mycotoxins, microbial quality and pesticides.
Four Sigmatic Instant mushroom beverages can be consumed:
As a coffee-like hot drink
In a cold beverage of any kind

In baking, cooking and in raw food meals
When to drink:
While doing sports - prevents fatigue and speeds recovery
To replace a cup of coffee for a healthy energizing effect
When going out - a natural and healthy alternative for a long night out on the road (or in the bedroom *wink*)
MUSHROOMS AND PREGNANCY
During pregnancy it is important to use caution and listen to the body when consuming strong natural herbs and mushrooms. This is also the case when using Four Sigmatic products. Traditionally, however, all medicinal mushrooms have been used during pregnancy to support the mother’s health and energy levels. Some adaptogenic herbs should be totally fine for a pregnant woman, but some are known to enhance blood flow to the uterus. Please consult your healthcare professional if you have further concerns.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS ILLEGAL? WOULD USING THEM BE CONSIDERED DOPING?
None of our products are on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA’s) prohibited list, and they are legal all around the world. Most medicinal mushrooms and adaptogenic herbs have been used for over 5,000 years, so it is very unlikely that they will ever make the list or become illegal.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS SUITABLE FOR VEGANS? WHAT ABOUT PEOPLE WITH ALLERGIES?
Yes. All our products are vegan, wheat-free, gluten-free, cholesterol-free, sugar-free, soy-free, peanut-free, and nut-free. They also are free from pesticides, additives, and other zombie ingredients that the GMO people promote.
WHERE DO YOUR PRODUCTS GROW?
Just like all good superfood manufacturers, we can’t get all our ingredients from one single farm or area if we want to create ideal solutions. We need to source products from all over the world, from the places where they originally grew and/or where there’s an exhaustive history and knowledge of using these foods and herbs. For example, our Chaga is wildcrafted in rural Siberia. We’re constantly looking for new quality suppliers and visiting existing farmers/producers.
HOW MUCH OF YOUR PRODUCTS CAN I USE EACH DAY?
All of our products are quite strong, but still tonic. This means that there’s no real health danger in overdosing. Just remember that a high enough dose of anything, including water and apples, can be toxic for your body. There’s still no need to take breaks or adopt cyclical consumption patterns. Rather, it’s wise to use the products consistently, to beat minor illnesses before they arise. Treating the cause is always healthier than curing the symptoms (such as by drinking the products only after you’ve become ill).
Personally, we recommend starting the use of new (even tonic) products with slightly smaller-than-normal dosages (e.g., one sachet of mushrooms) to get a feel for their potency and to give the body a chance to adapt to the new intelligence coming into it. After a few weeks of taking gradually increasing dosages, feel free to go ahead and drink as much as you like each day. Just listen to your body and your cravings, and all should be fine.
