How to try the functional mushroom trend

Functional mushroom powder

Om Nutrition has a diverse profile of product offerings. From morning focus to post-workout recovery, Om Nutrition has specially formulated blends of mushrooms available to address any and every need — and they pack a powerful punch.

Powder makes it easier than ever to incorporate functional mushrooms like lion’s mane and cordyceps into your everyday routine, whether you’re traveling, on-the-go, or simply just busy with life. These products take the guesswork out of the equation by making functional mushrooms more accessible and digestible than ever before. Try a powder in your morning smoothie — you can’t go wrong!

Functional mushroom moisturizer

Functional mushrooms can also address skincare challenges and needs when applied topically. We’re loving this deep moisture cream from Youth to the People, which is specially formulated with a blend of ashwagandha and reishi to soothe and nourish the skin during this dry and harsh time of year. Reishi is a powerful mushroom that can help reduce signs of irritation, dryness, and redness as well as protect the skin from additional stress.

Functional mushroom hair mask

Mushrooms can also help support hair health when used topically. This hair mask from AG Care contains snow mushrooms that deliver deep hydration to thoroughly nourish and revitalize the scalp and support overall hair health. The star ingredient supports shine and helps prevent breakage, directly targeting brittle hair “head on.” Naturally-derived snow mushrooms are incredibly gentle and supportive of hair health, restoration, and continued growth. There are no harsh additives here, so you really can’t go wrong with giving this mask a try.
