Testimonial: Insomnia x Mushrooms

Testimonial: Insomnia x Mushrooms

Brea bought the Stress Less, More Calm Bundle to help her in her fight against insomnia. She was diagnosed ten years ago and has been using sleeping pills to help her manage her symptoms for the past five years.

"I was at my wit's end. I saw an ad on Instagram for Stay Wyld and Lion's Mane, so I decided to check it out. I chose the Stress Less, More Calm bundle (Lion's Mane, Chaga + Reishi). I take them every morning when I brush my teeth. After two months, I was able to get off the sleeping pills I had been taking for five years. I've noticed I was more focused at work and staying on task."

Staying Committed!

Brea said the benefits were subtle, but she stayed committed and after two months she noticed a huge shift! Her best tip was putting your capsules and supplements in a shot glass and then taking them in the morning before you brush your teeth!

We love this suggestion but also encourage you to find what works for you! Most people find they like having this medicinal mushrooms with food to ease digestion and absorption. As pairing mushrooms with other foods, especially those containing healthy fats, can mitigate digestive issues and enhance the bioavailability and effectiveness of fat-soluble compounds in the mushrooms.

Because "The vitamins present in mushrooms are mainly fat-soluble vitamins, including A and E. as well as vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and provitamin D2 (ergosterol)."
In addition to taking her mushrooms every day, Brea tells us she turns her phone off half an hour before bedtime and makes a daily gratitude list! 

We've created a checklist of additional things to consider for healthy sleep habits:

  • Optimize your bedroom for sleep: ensure it's cool, quiet, and dark.
  • Avoid TV and electronic devices before bed to prevent disrupting your sleep cycle.
  • Maintain a consistent sleep schedule, even on weekends, and avoid changing routines that could interrupt sleep.
  • Minimize intake of caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol before bedtime.
  • Exercise regularly, preferably 5-6 hours before bedtime, to avoid sleep disturbances.
  • Discourage afternoon naps to improve nighttime sleep quality.
  • Stick to a regular meal schedule and avoid late dinners.
  • Limit fluid intake before bedtime to reduce nighttime bathroom visits.
  • Adopt stress-management techniques and establish a pre-sleep relaxation routine (reading, calm music, bathing).



Brea's story inspired us! We are sharing it in the hopes that it might connect dots for more people. Remember, we are all unique beings and it's important to find something that works for you.

Stay Wyld, Stay Healthy, Stay Consistent and Curious!
