Feeling stressed? Overwhelmed by hectic work/life schedules? Struggling with health complaints or dietary deficiencies? If so, you’re not alone. So many of us muddle through day by day feeling less than par.
Two such individuals were Julze Serendipity and Daniel Whitechurch, founders and creators of Teelixer functional tonics and superfood mushroom blends. Consistently poor lifestyle choices in their younger years depleted their health to a point where they were constantly battling illness and the effects of adrenal fatigue. Ultimately, this lack of vitality motivated them to create a range of products that helped restore their body and mind and regain their youth naturally.
Superfood mushrooms (otherwise known as functional or medicinal mushrooms) have been revered by Eastern traditions for centuries as being extremely powerful anti-ageing and immune boosting tonics.
They are also noted for their potential to improve:
- Kidney, liver and lung health
- Weight loss
- Sports recovery
- Cardiovascular support
- Diabetes and blood sugar control
- Stress adaptation
- Hormonal balancing
To maximise the benefits of these tonic herbs, the Teelixir duo are dedicated to ensuring they are creating a clean and pure product. The mushroom ingredients are sustainably wild-harvested, tested to ensure they are free from heavy metals and are non-irradiated. Most of the mushroom powders are also Australian Certified Organic (ACO).
Wondering how on earth to consume this powerhouse food? Well, here’s the exciting part. Because the nutritional benefits of medicinal mushrooms are unaffected by temperature, you can consume the powders in your daily coffee or tea, smoothie or soup. The key is to start small with only 1/4-1/2 teaspoon, taking note of how you feel and, if necessary, working your way up to a higher dose.
