Every ingredient serves a purpose, and we don't put stuff in our elixirs without good reason. Check out some of our superstar ingredients below.
grass fed collagen.
Our collagen is sourced only from the hides of grass fed, North American cows, unlike most grass fed collagen which is sourced from Brazil and contributes to deforestation of the Amazon rainforest.
To ensure better absorption, our collagen is in peptide form (hydrolyzed), allowing the amino acids to be more easily digested and utilized by the body.
Collagen is the most abundant form of protein in our bodies, and makes up the structure of our connective tissues, including hair, skin, nails, and joints. As we age, our bodies' production of collagen slows down.
Adding collagen to our diets ensures that we are getting the building blocks that we need to produce our own collagen which can help nourish and repair our connective tissues - making our skin glow, our nails and hair grow healthier, and keeping our bones and joints strong.
organic coconut butter & 100% coconut MCT oil.
Our MCT oil is palm-free and sourced from organic coconuts, as is our creamy coconut butter.
Our MCT oil is made up of a blend of C8 and C10 fatty acids, without any long chain fatty acids, resulting in better absorption and more benefits.
The shorter chains of fats found in MCT oil can be used for a quick source of energy, as they are easier to digest than long chain fatty acids. MCTs are also being studied for their positive effects on brain health, including for preventing and even treating Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.
Adding MCTs and coconut oil to your diet can improve energy levels and focus, and increase satiation throughout the day resulting in fewer sugar crashes and cravings.
organic raw cacao powder.
Our Salted Hot Chocolate Elixir gets its rich chocolate flavour from organic raw cacao powder.
Raw cacao powder is different from conventional cocoa powder in that it has not been heated or alkalized, allowing more of the beneficial nutrients to remain in the finished product.
Our raw cacao powder is very high in antioxidants which help ward off the effects of free radicals found in our environment and in our foods.
Raw cacao is also one of the best food sources of magnesium, an important mineral that is often depleted from many of our foods. Magnesium is involved in hundreds of processes within the body. Increasing your intake of magnesium can be beneficial for sleep, energy, heart health, muscle cramps, and menstrual cycle irregularities or pain.
organic turmeric & spices.
Our Turmeric Latte Elixir contains organic turmeric as well as other spices that not only enhance the flavour of turmeric, but also its benefits.
Turmeric is used traditionally in Ayurvedic medicine and we owe this ancient practice for sharing the healing power of this spice, as well as the other spices that are often paired with it.
While Turmeric is well known for its anti-inflammatory benefits, ginger is another powerful spice that works together in our Turmeric Latte to soothe inflammation in the body. A small amount of black pepper is added to maximize the absorption curcumin and other anti-inflammatory compounds found within Turmeric.
Together, these healing spices can soothe inflammation and offe relief from many conditions, from arthritis to acne.
