Cacao has been used ceremonially for thousands of years by the indigenous tribes of Central America. Cacao was considered to be the 'Food of the Gods', an association that gave rise to the scientific name of the cocoa tree, Theobroma cacao, from the Greek words Theo (God) and broma (drink). The use of cacao dates back at least 3,000 years! Raw cacao is considered a superfood, rich in antioxidants, magnesium, iron, calcium, phenylethylamine (PEA) and flavonoids. Cacao has been used to reduce stress levels and aid with depression.
Ceylon Cinnamon is loaded with antioxidants. Cinnamon may improve your cognitive function (focus, memory, and concentration). Cinnamon can be very calming and help clear feelings of anxiety. Cinnamon helps to regulate blood sugar levels, protects against heart disease, improves blood circulation & has mild anti-inflammatory properties. Cinnamon aids in digestion and is also a traditional remedy for aching muscles and other symptoms of viral conditions such as cold and flu.
Lion’s Mane is a natural nootropic, promoting focus, mental clarity and memory, while providing cerebral & nervous system support and improving overall cognitive function. It is known to increase the production of nerve growth factor. NGF is a small protein that plays pivotal roles in neuronal survival in the adult brain and modulates the brain’s ability to change its structure and move functions from damaged parts of the brain to undamaged parts. Lion’s mane may help improve depression & anxiety, support healthy immune system function and a healthy gut.
Reishi mushrooms have the beautiful ability to boost energy levels, help reduce blood pressure, and slow the aging process. They also help detoxify the body, fight inflammation, and improve your cognitive ability. Reishi mushroom is adaptogenic and helps one’s ability to naturally cope with stress levels allowing the body to return to a more relaxed state. Reishi’s anti-stress effects are believed to contribute to easing tension, strengthening and balancing the immune system, sharpening concentration and improving memory.
Marshmallow Root and Slippery Elm help to lubricate the digestive tract. Both have been used to coat the throat to relieve irritation and dry cough, helping soothe bronchial issues, stomach ulcers and inflammation & help with constipation. Slippery Elm has prebiotic effects which further support gut health by feeding your body’s good bacteria, promoting its health and growth.
Chaga helps to balance the immune system. The polysaccharides help to simulate the growth of leukocytes in the body, fortifying the immune system to fight against infections. Chaga promotes healthy skin, liver function, cardiovascular health & can help stabilize one's mood.
