Raw Cacao Powder

This powder dissolves easily in your shakes. Our raw, organic Heirloom Criollo Cacao Powder is created by taking the nibs and then cold-pressing the oil out. When the oil is removed, what results is dense, nutritionally packed dry mass. This mass is then ground into fine powder. Throughout this process every precaution is taken to ensure that no heat is used for maximum potency results.

Let's not forget, Cacao has one of the highest levels of antioxidants on the planet. The protective flavonoids in the cacao powder can protect cells against damage by free radicals by reducing blood pressure and relaxing blood vessels. Cacao is a natural mood booster because it stimulates the release of endorphins and serotonin in the brain. Cacao also contains anandamide which leaves us feeling cheerful and elevates our happiness levels.

Cacao powder is a brain food. The journal Neurology published preliminary research suggesting that cacao may improve cognitive function and the flow of blood to the brain.

Cacao is also one of the richest food sources of magnesium, which aids over 300 chemical reactions in the body. Magnesium supports everything from cardiovascular function to bone health. A one-ounce serving of cacao powder contains over 30% of the Daily Value (DV) for magnesium.

Astragalus Root

Throughout Asia astragalus has been used for thousands of years. As one of the 50 Fundamental Herbs, it is one of the most revered botanicals in traditional Chinese medicine. Aside from its historical association with long life and good health, astragalus is rich in antioxidants and plant sterols. In the east, astragalus is referred to as an adaptogen. This means that it helps the body to adapt to resist the effects of stress and recover from disease.

 

Known as a potent immune boosting herb and disease fighter. Why? Because it is an immunostimulant (an agent that stimulates the immune system) that it is known to increase the count of white blood cells and stimulate the production of antibodies, this builds up bodily resistance to viruses and bacteria.

New research is currently being conducted that shows that Astragalus does, have powerful anti-aging properties, slowing the aging process at a cellular level.
