The story of Four Sigmatic began in Finland
Four Sigmatic is a mushroom brand founded in Finland in 2012 and run by four friends. The core team believed in their Mushroom Mission so much that they left their well-paid jobs at Google, Citibank and Hewlett-Packard. The decision paid off as Four Sigmatic has gained recognition and praise for their delicious and effective mushroom products. Four Sigmatic has expanded to more than 25 countries and relocated their business headquarters to the U.S. in 2015. Despite all the success, the work of the Four Sigmatic guys is still inspired by making a real difference in global health.
The name ‘Four Sigmatic’ represents the best foods on the planet
As the founders themselves joke about, the name Four Sigmatic is a nerdy way of describing the best foods available on the planet – that is, the 100 most nutrient-dense and most studied foods. These 100 foods are four sigmas (or four standard deviations) above average food. In addition to mushrooms such as reishi and cordyceps, these foods include for example coffee, cacao, green tea and coconut. Four Sigmatic uses only these foods in their products – hence the brand name Four Sigmatic.
