These Instant Ramen Noodles Might Save Your Life

They're Brimming With Adaptogens and Superfoods

By Hadley Tomicki ·

Instant ramen saved your life back in the dorm days.

Now it's out to prolong your life in adulthood.

Is there anything it can't do?

Give a hearty namaste to Shaman Raman, a slurpable source of superfoods in the form of instant ramen, now available online and at Erewhon.

You've had your share of ramen, of course. But not the vegan kind with gluten-free noodles made from organic rice and water. The kind that includes non-GMO, soy-free superfoods, medicinal plants, and adaptogens like lion's mane, turkey tail, and cordyceps mushrooms, moringa, nutritional yeast, and pink Himalayan salt. All just to support your immune system and boost your brain.

This should be the easiest healthy meal you've ever made. Assuming you know how to put a pot of water on to boil. Or have the skills to operate a microwave and a faucet. Or went to culinary school or something.

You can get the ramen in three flavors: Spicy Cosmo Coconut, which is good for brain health. Savory Mystic Miso, which is full of anti-inflammatory and immune system boosters. And Sacred Soothing Chik'n, which A) is sacred and B) supports memory, concentration, and nerve health.

Essentially you have a simple ramen base of broth and noodles that you know is going to be good for you. Which you can treat as a blank canvas to doctor up, anyway you wish, in pursuit of a perfect bowl.

Adding your own green onions, soft-boiled egg, and daikon as you see fit. Sprinkling in some furikake and a small pearl of wasabi. 

Filling it high with pork belly, chorizo, Dorito crumbles, and... 

Oh, right.
