Thank you to our amazing show sponsors Real Mushrooms. Real mushrooms are the highest quality mushroom extracts I can find. They are 100% mushroom certified organic. They have no added fillers or grains, and they are third party tested multiple times. You can add their mushroom extract powders to things like coffee, tea, smoothies, or oatmeal, or they also have capsules. I use Real Mushrooms Lion’s Mane organic mushroom powder in my Intelligence Coffee every morning, and I use the Cordyceps-M mushroom capsules for improved focus and cognitive performance.
