Your new morning ritual.
MUD\WTR™ is a coffee alternative consisting of organic ingredients lauded by cultures old and young for their health and performance benefits. With 1/7th the caffeine of coffee, mud gives you natural energy, focus and more without the jitters and crash.
I get a wicked boost in focus after drinking my morning Mud, without the jitters and anxiety that made me give up caffeine in the first place.
MUD\WTR is pretty much the best substitute for coffee that you can ultimately get.
What is mud?
(Baby, don't hurt me.)
Add a tablespoon to hot water and add whatever you like. Some like it with a little creamer, some honey or even bulletproof. Done? Stir well before enjoying like the legend you are.

Lion's Mane was added to support mental performance. A newly-hyped nootropic in Western Cultures, Lion's Mane has been a part of Chinese and Japanese medicine for centuries. It's our vision to create a drinkable ritual that addresses mind, body, and soul - Lion's Mane is here for your mind.
Chaga is a mushroom that grows on birch trees. Eastern Cultures have been drinking chaga for centuries for its overall benefits and soothing properties.
Reishi was added to support a healthy immune system and to promote natural energy. This mushroom has been used in Chinese medicine for over 2000 years and is commonly called the “king of mushrooms” for its adaptogenic qualities. It has many polysaccharides and beta-glucans that are known to help support healthy immune function.
Cordyceps was chosen for its physical performance benefits. Originally used by high altitude Tibetan herdsman, Cordyceps is now used by many to support energy, stamina and athletic performance. When dreaming up our ideal elixir our physical performance was a major focus - Cordyceps is here to stay.
Cacao is Mud's most abundant ingredient both for its flavor and effect. Cacao was worshiped by the Mayans, fueled the daily diet of the Aztecs, and has been labeled the "food of the gods" by many subsequent cultures. It makes sense, because it tastes as good as it makes you feel.
Our founder lived in India for some time and fell in love with the tradition and benefits of Masala Chai. Chai is a blend of ingredients like naturally brewed and flash-dried black tea powder and 100% Certified Organic powdered spices: ginger, cardamom, nutmeg, black pepper, cinnamon, cloves. With just enough caffeine to induce alertness, numerous benefits, and a complex flavor profile that rivals coffee - chai is what gives mud it's soul.
Turmeric is one of the most lauded compounds on the planet. Used in foods and drinks across the globe throughout history for its color, flavor, and benefits on the body and mind - it was an obvious addition to mud. Curcumin is an antioxidant flavonoid in turmeric that supports a healthy immune system. Yep, we’ll take it.
Cinnamon is a spice that has been used medicinally for thousands of years… Something you’ll hear often around here. Primarily cinnamon was added for taste, but nothing in Mud is added for taste alone. Cinnamon contains phenolic compounds, flavonoids, and antioxidants that make it one of the most beneficial spices on the planet. Mud doesn’t have any sweeteners and cinnamon helps you fight off sugar cravings to keep you making better food choices throughout the day.
WTF? Salt? Yeah, salt. One of the most important things we do when we wake up is rehydrate. Salt supports hydration, contains minerals that the body needs, and plays a supporting role in making mud taste amazing. We put a pinch in each serving to give you the benefits in the most subtle way possible.
#1 Coffee Alternative
We weren’t mad at coffee, just disappointed.
I fell into the commonly held belief that coffee would allow me to do more and do it better. Soon, I was drinking 3 cups of coffee per day and began to experience anxiety, jitters and really poor sleep which led to a variety of other negative side effects.
It turns out caffeine blocks the adenosine receptors affecting your ability to get deep sleep. In addition, the jolt of adrenaline and manipulation of your mood cause the shakes, crash and dependency which is terrible for high performance in the office or at the gym.
I decided I no longer wanted to rely on hundreds of milligrams of caffeine to wake up the same way that I didn’t want to depend on a pill to fall asleep. I loved the morning ritual, but I felt like if I was going to drink something every morning, it should be more than just a vessel for caffeine. So, I set out to make something better.
Does it contain caffeine?
Yeah, mud has about 1/7 the caffeine as a cup of coffee. This comes from the black tea leaves found in the masala chai. Just enough to give you alertness without creating dependency.
Is there sugar in it?
Nope. No sugar or sneaky sweeteners added.
Where is it made?
Our company started in and is operated out of Venice, CA. The mushrooms are grown just down the road in Carlsbad, CA, and the rest of the ingredients are sourced from all over the world before being dropped off on your doorstep by a Peregrine falcon.
Where are your mushrooms from?

Can you drink while pregnant?

Will it make me trip?
Mud contains magic mushrooms, but not those kind :) Nothing in mud would cause a psychedelic trip, but if you are into that sort of thing, we suggest you look into the work being done by www.maps.org. We donate to them every month.
