When is the best time to take Tremella?
One of the best times to take tremella mushroom is in the morning. Although the best time to take tremella could be different for everyone depending on what you plan to use tremella for, what other supplements you’re taking, your sleep-waking routine, and what time of day is most convenient for you.
1. In the Morning with Breakfast
Tremella can be worked into your health care routine along with morning vitamins, and makes for a nice complement to your daily multivitamins to give you that extra immunity boost. Many prefer using Tremella powder, or even a functional mushroom powder mix, to blend in with their morning coffee or tea. Of course, capsules are probably the most convenient choice for ingesting on a daily basis. You can learn more about tremella mushroom capsules here.
Tremella is often said to help improve immune function, so boosting Tremella dosing right before you hit the trail or get your day started might be a good idea. In this case, you could split the total dosage into several doses, taking one morning and one evening. While Tremella is best known for its potential anti-aging benefits, many believe that it has potent immune-boosting and anti-inflammatory effects, which may benefit you during illness.
2. Using Tremella for Your Skincare Routine
If you are going to be using Tremella topically in order to get the benefits of the skin, then you could just include it in your regular skin care routine. Use Tremella prior to using any moisturizer, as the moisturizer will “lock” your skin in so that it does not allow Tremella to be absorbed. Many people use Tremella internally as well as externally for the best benefits. Whatever you choose, you will want to take Tremella at or near the same time every day.
Consistency is the key to getting the most from your Tremella dosing regimen. You might be disappointed to learn that Tremellas effects are not immediate, instead, you will have to maintain a dosing regimen for about 2 weeks before you start seeing benefits. Like other functional mushrooms, Tremella relies on the systemic response, which helps to establish a balance in your brain and immune system.
This means while you might find you like taking a dose of Tremella at a specific point during the day, taking it every day, around the same time every day is the more important factor. Once you have established a consistent dose schedule, take up to 3 weeks to see the full benefits of taking a daily dose of Tremella.
How Much Tremella Mushroom Should You Take?
Tremella doses typically used vary widely among individuals, depending on a number of factors, such as weight, tolerance, and medical conditions. Many people take 1-3 grams of Tremella per day, sometimes divided over two daily doses. We suggest starting out at smaller dosages and increasing them slowly if necessary, giving yourself several days to assess effects before changing up the dosage schedule. The Tremella powder makes adjusting dosages a breeze. Lower dosages of Tremella can be needed when taking a functional supplement mix containing other mushrooms or plant-based adaptogens.
This is because other, similar supplements can include many of the same nutrients and bioactive compounds, such as vitamins, minerals, beta-glucans, and terpenes.
Additional Tips on the Best Time to Take Tremella
Consider taking Tremella with your breakfast or mixed in with coffee or tea first thing in the morning. If you are drinking Tremella as tea, you might not need to take it with your meals.
For the concentrated forms of Tremella, consider taking it with or after your meals to avoid any potential stomach upset or other side effects from Tremella. If taking the encapsulated form of Tremella, take it with lots of water to help avoid any stomach upset or heartburn. Tremella powder is convenient because you can measure it with exact increments to fit just about any dosage requirement.
Some mixes contain a variety of functional mushrooms which may enhance the benefits of Tremella. Talk with your health care provider about the dosage of Tremella if you are taking any other supplements or medications. You can probably take Tremella along with your other medications, but you will have to space out the doses accordingly.
