Their answer: Reishi Mushroom Elixir. They made a special batch for me and my listeners that comes without sweetener; you can try it at bedtime with a little honey or nut milk, or you can just add hot water to your single-serving packet and embrace its bitterness like I do.</p><p>Try it right now by going to&nbsp;<a href="http://foursigmatic.com/ferriss" target="_blank"><strong>foursigmatic.com/ferriss</strong></a><strong>&nbsp;</strong>and using the code&nbsp;<strong>Ferriss&nbsp;</strong>to get 20 percent off this rare, limited run of Reishi Mushroom Elixir. If you are in the experimental mindset, I do not think you'll be disappointed.</p>
