Cichorium intybus var. sativum This powerhouse plant is the star in our show because it's been shown to help reduce A1C levels and has a high Inulin content. It's also been shown to increase HDL (good) and decrease LDL (bad) cholesterol. Is there more? Yep! Regular consumption of Chicory has been shown to increase Adiponectin levels which helps fat breakdown & suppress glucose creation in the liver. Plus, it's anti-carcinogenic in human colon cells. Whaaat!? We know...we feel the same way.
Cordyceps Militaris This tiny, worm like fungus is no wimp. Its superhero name is "Rewind" because it has been found to help slow the aging process, reverse cancer cells, and return blood sugar levels back to normal. But like any protector, this fungi has more than one superpower. Cordyceps may help increase ATP in the body which helps deliver energy to the muscles and improves oxygen usage. A fitness junkie's dream!
Trametes Versicolor One word: Polysaccharopeptides. Try saying that five times fast. Anyway, this fabulous fungus is so much more than it's good looks. We're talking Increased Immunity, Gut Health, Prebiotics, Flavanoids, Phenols... the good stuff. Studies have found that Turkey Tail may significantly increase athletic performance and reduce fatigue. But what's really amazing is that it's already used in combination with chemo treatments to help fight cancer cells. That's pretty dope.
Theobroma Cacao Cacao is the cold, bitter older twin of Cocoa. They start as the same seed but our Cacao isn't roasted at high temps. Despite the mildly bitter taste, it's nutrient dense profile more than makes up for it. Cacao has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes. The Flavonoids in Cacao can help reduce inflammation throughout the body and improve blood flow to the brain and heart. It's an excellent source of Iron, Magnesium, Fiber, Potassium and Protein. Boom!
Taraxacum Officinale Considered one of the most common weeds, this bright yellow plant is actually full of magic. Not the wizardry kind.... the wellness kind. Every part of this plant is actually edible but we show the roots a lot of favoritism. Dandelion roots are full of antioxidants which help fight Free Radicals. They contain an important soluble fiber - Inulin which supports the growth of healthy bacteria. It's diuretic effect has been shown to help those with diabetes. Pretty magical.
Syzygium Aromaticum This Maluku Island native is a big winner in the Antioxidant, Antimicrobial and Antibacterial departments. But don't worry, this flower bud isn't anti social! It's actually a really good friend... with benefits. Just 1tsp of Clove has 55% your daily recommended dose of Manganese. This is crucial for your brain and bones. But we're most excited about the research around the Eugenol in clove. Studies found it can help destroy esophageal & cervical cancer cells. *happy tears*
Cinnamomum Verum Used as an aromatic spice and flavoring agent, Ceylon Cinnamon is the bark of a tropical evergreen. The active ingredient in Cinnamon is cinnamaldehyde, which has anti-inflammatory effects on the body. Ceylon Cinnamon is antimicrobial. It's full of Beta-Carotene which gives it that rich, sexy color. Aaaand it has a powerful antioxidant called Proanthocyanadins which protects against heart disease. Ceylon is the real OG.
Panax Ginseng A root that's been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years, Ginseng is an Anabolic plant. This means it builds your energy using things like amino acids or nutrients to give you long lasting, level effects with no crash at the end. It's literally the same process your body uses to build muscle or grow a baby. Studies have found that Ginseng helps improve brain functions like memory & mood. It's also been shown to relieve anxiety and boost immunity. Now that's rich.
Lepidium meyenii This cool Adaptogen might look like a shriveled up potato but it's powerful in the energy and mood departments. It also has high levels of Iron, Iodine and Potassium which means healthy cells, strong muscles and a steady metabolism. In Peru where it's grown, the natives have used it as traditional medicine for memory, bone health and fertility. Speaking of fertility... Maca has a bit of a reputation for curing the bedroom blues as well. *Wink Wink* We'll let you be the judge.
Hericium Erinaceus Research around this furry looking fungus has been promising in the brain and nerve departments. In fact, merely a few grams a day has been show to reduce the symptoms of memory loss in controlled studies. Whaaat!? Even better, when placed head to head with cancer cells, the cancer cells began to die rapidly. It's also been found to work as an anti-inflammatory and help reduce symptoms of depression.
