The Genesis of Troop: From Adversity to Opportunity

Discovering Mushrooms During Challenging Times

Stephanie Moyal's journey into the world of mushrooms began during the pandemic. After losing her job in hospitality and helping her cousin Jake recover from a severe ski accident, Stephanie stumbled upon the remarkable benefits of mushrooms. This challenging period became a turning point, sparking the creation of Troop, a company dedicated to making mushrooms accessible and beneficial for everyone.

The Health Benefits of Mushrooms

A Natural Solution for Holistic Health

Mushrooms have been used for centuries in various cultures for their incredible health benefits. They promote holistic wellbeing by addressing a wide range of health issues naturally. Some of the key benefits of mushrooms include:

  • Immune Support: Mushrooms like turkey tail are renowned for their immune-boosting properties.

  • Gut Health: Mushrooms support gut health with their prebiotic and probiotic qualities.

  • Mental Clarity: Lions mane is known to enhance cognitive function and mental clarity.

  • Anxiety Relief: Regular consumption of mushrooms can help alleviate anxiety and promote a sense of calm.

Preventive Medicine Over Prescription Dependence

In Western society, there is a heavy reliance on curative and prescription medicine. They emphasize the importance of shifting towards preventive medicine, where mushrooms can play a crucial role. By incorporating mushrooms into our daily routines, we can prevent health issues before they arise and naturally address existing ones.
