In fact, the Duchess of Sussex believes in the power of supplements so much, she invested in plant-powered latte brand Clevr Blends in 2020. Clevr Blends calls itself a 'self-care company' and sells mushroom-based powders that you make coffee and smoothies from for a daily health hit.

What are the benefits of Meghan Markle's mushroom supplements?

"Lion’s Mane has incredible benefits for the nervous system," says Clarissa Berry, nutritionist for Dirtea, a range of mushroom-based powders. "It can boost mental performance, memory, and focus, making it a wonderful addition to your morning routine.

"Lion's Mane is also mood-balancing, it reduces inflammation and supports healthy digestion, as well as reducing stress and anxiety," adds Clarissa.

Reishi is equally high-performing, with Clarissa explaining that it's considered one of the best supplements for stress and anxiety.

"Reishi has a soothing effect on the nervous system, stimulating the brain to produce calming neurotransmitters, and studies have shown it to alleviate symptoms of anxiety," she says.

"It can also balance hormones, which are known to have a direct impact on mood," Clarissa adds. She also explains that reishi mushrooms can improve sleep quality and duration, as well as support immunity and help with hay fever, thanks to a natural antihistamine action

The best news? Reishi and Lion's Mane mushroom supplements get to work immediately, decreasing inflammation and improving mental performance right away.
