Four varieties of medicinal mushrooms now available at health-focused Toronto café, nutbar

Four varieties of medicinal mushrooms—an ancient superfood—are now available at health-focused Toronto café, nutbar. Medicinal mushrooms have been recognized as a highly potent superfood for thousands of years and long used for their healing powers in traditional Chinese medicine. Lauded for their healing and boosting potential—from immune function, to offering anti-aging or nootropic properties—medicinal mushrooms are making a comeback.

nutbar has newly introduced medicinal mushrooms as a tasteless tincture $1 add-on to all their smoothies, coffee and matcha, or in the special “matcha + mushroom misto” ($6.50), an elixir of ceremonial matcha, all four mushroom types, and a dash of steamed nutbar nutmilk, the café’s signature real nutmilk blend.

Harnessing the incredible health benefits of medicinal mushrooms, we’re excited to offer Torontonians the ability to give their daily coffee or tea habit a serious nutrient boost,” said Kate Taylor Martin, nutbar’s founder and a holistic nutritionist. “Used regularly, these ancient superfoods can do what we’re all looking for – give us an energy boost, keep our immune system in check, help us manage stress and improve our vitality and well-being.”
