Ingredients & Health Benefits:
Here are a few of our key ingredients with some major benefits we wish to share with you!
Cacao Liquor: Cacao is loaded with polyphenols and antioxidants. Polyphenols have come to be known as “lifespan essentials" meaning they promote healthy, longer living. High polyphenol foods can reduce risk factors for cardiovascular disease and help protect the body from chronic disease. There may even be an effect against cancer! Cacao is certainly a food that should be included in any preventative diet. Cacao also tops superfoods such as acai and blueberry in antioxidant levels!
Stevia: Stevia is an all-natural sweetener with 0 calories, 0 carbs and 0 sugars. As if this isn't great enough, Stevia, depending on it's origin can be 200-300x sweeter than table sugar. It has been seen to help regulate blood sugar and is currently being studied for cancer inhibiting abilities.
Green Coffee Extract: Another antioxidant packed ingredient in the form of chorogenic acid and containing polyphenols to keep the body feeling young. This extract has been seen to regular glucose levels and stimulate the body's metabolism as well.
BlackCurrant Berry: One of the healthiest berries on the planet; packed with antioxidants, vitamins A & C, essential B vitamins, and iron. Currants have been known to have effects against cancer, aging, inflammation, and neurological diseases.
