Why these ingredients are special:
Flavorful, bold and delicious, studies suggest that one of nature’s natural sweeteners, maple syrup, may also have a protective effect on brain cells against damage. Full of vitamins and minerals, including calcium, iron, magnesium, and zinc, this antioxidant-rich, low-calorie sweetener makes a tasty addition to a variety of foods and beverages.
Yacon syrup has an earthy, complex flavor...and if you are looking for a keto-friendly sweetener, search no further! Or yacon syrup, sourced from Nepal, is rich in a soluble plant fiber known as fructooligosaccharides (FOS). FOS contains short chain fatty acids, which help regulate your immune response, glycemic levels, and fat metabolism. Plus, steady blood sugar means steady energy, which translates to better mental performance. Rich in fiber and botanical goodness, yacon syrup may leave some residue at the bottom of the bottle, but consider it a reminder that you are getting nothing but wholesome, nutritious, pure ingredients.
Cacao is not only delicious—it’s incredible brain food! Studies show that the flavanols in cacao support healthy blood flow to the brain, which may improve memory, cognitive function, and can even help your brain grow new neural connections! Plus, this tasty mood booster promotes the release of endorphins. Along with flavanols, cacao is also rich in magnesium and zinc, making it a superfood capable of promoting mental alertness while nourishing your body and helping it fight oxidative stress.
A plant native to India, ashwagandha has long been used to boost memory, brain function, and increase stamina. Belonging to a class of herbs called nootropics (i.e. brain tonic), ashwagandha helps to invigorate your mind and has been shown to reduce anxiety as well as ease nervous tension. Furthermore, ashwagandha is an adaptogen, meaning it helps your body and mind to be resilient even under stressful circumstances.
Another wonderful nootropic that’s been revered as a memory and brain tonic in India for well over two thousand years! Studies have shown that Gotu Kola helps to enhance mood and cognitive function while improving blood circulation and the body’s ability to use glucose—the brain’s major source of energy.
Traditionally cultivated from the mountains of southeast Asian, cordyceps is considered a super mushroom. Research has shown that this small but mighty mushroom improves energy levels while combating stress and fatigue, and that long term use can actually help to ameliorate stress—making it an energy boosting adaptogen. Cordyceps also helps boost your body’s metabolism which can support weight loss or general weight management.
Lion’s Mane Mushrooms
As its name implies, Lion's mane, also known as Hericium Erinaceus, is a scruffy white mushroom with long dangling spines. This super mushroom boasts numerous benefits, most notably for the brain, heart, and digestive health. Lion’s mane shows great promise for improving cognitive function, lowering cholesterol, and reducing inflammation in the gut. Some studies even suggest it has the potential to slow down or even reverse the progression of neurodegenerative diseases.
We use a small amount of citric acid to extend freshness and preserve the quality of our superfood blends. Originally procured from lemon juice, citric acid is naturally found in citrus fruits, such as lemons and limes.
Rosemary extract, rich in antioxidants, is a well known memory enhancer, promoting both learning and recall. Plus, this botanical wonderworks double time by acting as a natural preservative and mold fighter.
Pancakes and Waffles
The mildly sweet maple flavor makes it the perfect sub for maple syrup and conventional sweeteners.
