Okay. So coffee. Coffee is everything.
And for some reason (that I cannot possibly fathom), there are those who think coffee is unhealthy. I know, absurd.
However, coffee, when consumed in healthy amounts, is actually extremely beneficial to your health!
Coffee is high in antioxidants, lengthens telomeres (it helps prevent DNA damage), and promotes a healthy gut.
Win, win, win, right?!
But what if I told you there are 5 Ways you can ELEVATE those benefits? What if I told you implementing one or all of these 5 additions could have massive impacts on your overall longevity, energy, and wellness.
I have curated my top 5 morning coffee additions to optimize your wellness!

So let’s explore the specific benefits of each addition…
1. Mushroom Complex
Agaricus blazei, Antrodia camphorata, Chaga, Cordyceps,Pleurotus eryngii (king trumpet), Hericium erinaceus (lion’s mane), Maitake, Shiitake powder, Reishi, Turkey tails; all organic, all longevity-inducing.
The Functionist Organic Mushroom Blend
10 different types of mushrooms. 10. This supplements covers it all. Immune support, gut health, energy boost, hormone balance, cognitive boost, everything. This potent organic blend is packed with antioxidants, polyphenols, and fiber to help optimize your coffee’s benefits. Mix 1/2 a teaspoon in with my coffee and blend with my milk frother and you’ll never know it’s there!
2. Multi Collagen
At this point, it’s no secret that your body start producing 1% less collagen every year after you turn 20. Thankfully, there’s something we can do about that.
Around 1/3 of the protein in your body is collagen in the form of muscle fibers, gut/stomach lining, skin, hair, nails, joints, etc.
It is so important to preserve our collagen consumption to ensure we are optimizing longevity and wellness.
Which is why I ensure 30% of my daily protein intake comes from collagen peptides and/or bone broth!
Ancient Nutrition Multi Collagen
Ancient harvest is my go-to supplement brand. Their products are not only formulated with high quality, organic ingredients, but the brand is also committed to restoring soil, crop, climate health through regenerative farming. And I can always trust their products are additive, filler, preservative-free.
3. Coconut Milk Powder
Did you know that your almond, oat, & soy milks are FULL of toxic ingredients like gums, vegetable oils, and preservatives?
And these few that have 2-3 ingredients are rather expensive. Which I why I recently made the switch to this coconut milk powder. It contains NO additives, sweeteners, or fillers.

Coconut milk powder is not only a good alternative to avoid artificial ingredients, but it actually provides some great benefits.
Coconut milk promotes healthy blood circulation, oxygen supply, and boosts ketone production.
It is also dairy-free, vegan, keto, paleo, and whole30 freindly!
Kos Organic Coconut Milk Powder
KOS is another one of my favourite brands because one purchase of KOS provides one meal for someone in need. They sell only the highest quality of products, they taste amazing, and always support your wellness. They are one of my absolute go-to supplement brands! With this products, I simply add one scoop to my coffee with my milk frother and enjoy the pure bliss.
4. Liquid Maca Root
Maca root is one of the superfoods I swear by with hypothyroidism. It was the first holistic supplement I began consuming and I still ensure it is part of my daily wellness.
The in-depth benefits of this superfood are too much to get into here, so I’ll just leave you with a concise list and link to my post The Superfood I Swear By with Hypothyroidism (aka, maca).
- Balances Hormones
- Boosts Thyroid Function
- Improves Focus & Brain Fog
- Improves Endurance
- Nutrient Dense
- Improves Fertility & Libido
Mary Ruth Organic Liquid Maca Root
Not only does it provide incredible health benefits, but it also has a honeycomb, toffee undertone, making it the perfect addition to your morning coffee. It’s perfect if you dislike powder and capsule supplements (I’m such a baby when it comes to capsule supplements).
5. Mold-Free Coffee
Okay, so this isn’t really an addition to your coffee, it’s just me telling you to stop drinking mold-ridden coffee.
recently, I wrote the post Why You Need Mold Free Coffee, but essentially, you can’t be healthy when you are consuming small amounts of mold everyday.
And unfortunately, most coffee isn’t third-party tested. Therefore, it contains mold and other pesticides and toxins.

This third-party tested, mycotoxin-free & pesticide free, organic coffee is one of my favourites! LifeBoost coffee uses a wet & dry process, is hand-washed with pure spring water, hand selected, and dried with natural sunlight to ensure you have the purest, healthiest cup possible.
