My Current Morning Coffee

At the gym, I often get asked what I have in my coffee as everyone sees me adding all sorts of powders to it. My current morning coffee consists of:

  • Collagen

  • Lion’s mane

  • Cordyceps

  • Chaga

Currently, I use individual extracts so I can add whatever I like and play with different doses. In the past, I have used pre-mixed coffee which is more convenient but I like to tailor it to my needs and experiment on myself a little bit.


Collagen is something I have had for many years but didn’t really give it as much attention as I should. I have noticed my joints and tendons are feeling a lot better since I started taking it daily and at a much larger dose. Collagen has many other benefits which you can read more about here.

Lion’s Mane

Lion’s mane is known for its beneficial effects on the brain. With all the concussions I have had in my life I take a lot of things that can help regenerate, slow the degeneration, or improve brain function.

“Lion’s mane has the ability to repair and regenerate neurons in your body, resulting in improved overall cognitive function, and lion’s mane has been known to reverse and mitigate the effects of such neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and dementia, among others.” – Tero Isokauppila

Lion’s mane is used to:

  • Improve memory

  • Boost concentration

  • Protect your nervous system and stimulate new neuron growth


Cordyceps is known primarily for its ability to increase energy and reduce fatigue, so I use this in my morning coffee, pre-workout. Cordyceps contains beta-glucans which help deliver oxygen to the body. Cordyceps can also boost ATP levels. Due to these two properties cordyceps can help respiratory issues such as asthma and bronchitis. It also has anti-inflammatory properties which can help with blood flow and overall heart health, and it can also help with libido.


Chaga is a bit of an all-rounder, helping many different systems within the body. It has immunomodulating abilities, anti-cancer properties, is a powerful antioxidant, and is an anti-inflammatory.
