Why I Drink MUD\WTR.
As a coffee lover, I drink coffee as a ritual to start my day. I also love the creativity, focus, and security it brings me with each cup. Before I became a MUD enthusiast, I couldn’t help but see the allure of MUD\WTR thru all their advertising campaigns as an alternative to my daily cup of joe.
Although I love traditional caffeinated coffee, I wanted to see what all this hype about MUD WTR was! So I set out to give it a try for a few months, and so far, I have loved it! I wrote this little article just to discuss a few intriguing points I have found about drinking MUD!
Benefits i’ve personally noticed:
- A sense of calm each morning
- A sense of roundedness to Earth & nature around me
- A warm sensation inside
- A boost in focus
- NO CAFFEINE JITTERS
- NO AFTERNOON CRASHES
First off, the caffeine level of MUD\WTR vs. Traditional Coffee.
If you are someone who struggles with depersonalization as I have in the past, coffee can be highly discomforting. In a traditional cup of coffee, there is generally a much higher caffeine level. Although this may be a great way to jumpstart your day, it can also spike cortisol levels and leave you jittery and uncomfortable. I wish I had found MUD during that time in my life.
MUD\WTR has 1/7th the caffeine of an average cup of coffee. Check them out online!
Second, let’s discuss some of the ingredients that make up MUD\WTR.
MUD has some great adaptogenic herbs, including turmeric for help with inflammation, and a little over half a gram of four different medicinal mushrooms. This brew truly does deliver a plethora of benefits! The consumer receives a boost in immune defense, digestive help, nervous system regulation, and a performance boost, just to name a few. Lions Mane, Chaga, Cordyceps, and Reishi are all present in this brew. Read here to learn more about medicinal mushrooms!
My favorite ingredient worth mentioning is Cacao!
This gives mud its very earthy taste and is actually the main ingredient in the creation of chocolate. It is a sacred seed harvested from the Theobroma Cacao tree for use in ceremonial settings. See here for the difference between Cocoa & Cacao.
But this once ancient practice is beginning to become a beneficial modern trend in holistic living. Its popularity is mainly due to its ability to conjure up an interconnectedness and expanded consciousness within the individual. Many users say it grounds them back to the earth, restoring that natural connection man once had. In a Trends With Benefits article by MUD\WTR that explores How Cacao Opens The Heart, a shaman interviewed on Cacao said, “When a person ingests cacao, our bodies produce chemicals like serotonin that make you feel really relaxed,” Buenrostro said. “You [can] access a deeper state of awareness and consciousness.”
Why Cacao Is Such An Important Ingredient.
Well, it’s the main ingredient in MUD WTR, so technically, you have a mini Cacao ceremony every morning, no matter where you are. How’s that for a morning ritual?
On a scientific level, the benefits of Cacao make sense. Their beans are rich in flavanols, which enlist cardiovascular and circulatory benefits like lower blood pressure and improved blood flow to the brain and heart! It also contains essential amino acids that modulate serotonin.
All in all, MUD\WTR has been a great coffee alternative for me. I will still have a traditional cup of joe every once in a while- but it comes nowhere close to offering me the benefits of MUD.
If you’re looking for something to replace your afternoon cup of coffee that keeps you up to date, this product is for you.
If you’re looking for something to help combat stress, this product is for you.
If you’re looking for a new morning or evening ritual that leaves you feeling empowered and renewed, this product is for you.
This product is for you if you’re tired of being jittery, feeling lightheaded, or crashing in the afternoon from too much caffeine in your coffee.
I am a proponent of the moderate consumption of coffee, but for now, I’m spending a few months just drinking MUD, and the benefits have been excellent!

How plant medicines could help settle the MUDDY water of our modern society.
I genuinely believe, as a seeking naturalist, we are on the precipice of a massive rediscovery of the power plant medicines have to offer! There is an essential need for transformative healing on our planet at this time, and it’s no longer something we can sweep under the rug. If we wish to change our world for the better and save our species, we must take individual action towards healing as soon as possible! Especially when it comes to combating the drawbacks of the pharmaceutical industry.
It’s easy to blame others for the state of the world today, but we are all part of the collective conscious. As the great Mahatma Gandi states, “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”
Through the safe and educated implementation of plant medicines into mainstream society, they offer us a mechanism to heal our past, increase our vitality, and heal our planet. We owe it to future generations to be brave and explore this “new” but truthfully ancient frontier so that our species can live thrivingly!
