Heavenly Hot Chocolate 8oz
A sweet and creamy chocolate drink mix with real wild cacao, mucuna, cayenne pepper, lucuma fruit, and coconut palm sugar. This is similar to a traditional South American Hot Chocolate. Chocolate was originally consumed in warm drinks with other traditional foods for thousands of years.
This blend is designed to be a great tasting base for adding other herbs and superfoods too. It will hide the flavor of more bitter but medicinal products we carry. It is best combined with a little nut milk or coconut milk and warm tea or water.
Cacao, cayenne, and shilajit are great sources of minerals and are known to enhance the uptake of other nutrients or herbs they are combined with.
The combination of Cacao and Mucuna is synergistic. Meaning that the stimulating effects of cacao are balanced by the calming effects of Mucuna. This blend has a profound impact on the mood. Keeping up the production of phenylethalamines, serotonin, and dompamine is very important for neurological health. This blend is also very effective for someone who has a history of drug use and/or stimulants like caffeine which can deplete dopamine stores.
Mucuna is most known for its dopamine precursor l-dopa. It has been used for nervous system and adrenal restoration, hormone balancing, immune function, sleep and mood enhancement, cellulite and body fat reduction, bone density and mental focus.
Mucuna Pruriens is a very special plant that is not well known to the modern world. It has been used in many systems of ancient herbal medicine all over the world. It even has a rich history of use with cacao in South America.
