Cordyceps mushroom plays the main role in this hot cocoa, and is a vital part of high and balanced all-day energy levels. Not only that, but it’s energy that doesn’t stress the adrenals. Next up is cacao, an effective mood enhancer, antioxidant source, and comfort food. The legendary Amazonian adaptogen, guarana, amplifies the effects of the other herbs included in this drink (each packet includes 20 mg of natural caffeine derived from guarana).
How and when to use:
- Drink espresso-style by adding one packet to 3 fluid oz. of hot water.
- Drink it in the morning to kickstart your day.
- Enjoy it in the afternoon for a balanced pick-me-up.
- Drink two servings per day.
5 Powerful Ingredients
Dual-extracted Cordyceps Mushroom (400 mg)
Cordyceps is an adaptogen, not a stimulant, so it helps produce and maintain constant energy levels on the cellular level. The uplifting effects of cordyceps work like magic with cacao.
Each packet contains 400 mg of the most potent cordyceps CS-4 extract, with at least 40 percent polysaccharides (more than 15 percent beta-glucans) and 15 percent cordycepic acid. No starch, sugars, or any fillers … at all.
Cacao is an effective mood enhancer, an antioxidant source, and a perfect delivery system for herbs and mushrooms because it opens up the capillaries. About 50 percent of each packet is composed of this smooth, flavorful, minimally processed cacao powder, grown in the volcanic soils of Indonesia.
Coconut Palm Sugar
Coconut palm sugar is a mineral-rich alternative to refined sugars, and it has an exceptionally low glycemic index (GI). It is made by boiling down the sap of the coconut palm, the maple syrup of the tropics. One serving contains only 2.5 grams of coconut palm sugar—just enough to create a nice texture and a hint of sweetness. To put this in perspective, this amount compares to about one-tenth of the sugar in one banana!
This famous natural Amazonian adaptogen amplifies the effects of other herbs and superfoods. Our guarana extract contains 20 mg of naturally occurring caffeine per serving for a slight but noticeable energy boost and a nice touch of bitter flavor.
This hot chili is a strong thermogen, which means it raises the body temperature and increases metabolism. The mild burning sensation it leaves in your mouth results in a release of even more good-feeling hormones and balances blood-sugar levels.
