Each ingredient has been chosen for deliciousness and inner-glow properties:
Raw cacao is the ultimate 'bliss' food - used in Mayan sacred ceremonies, it was known as Theobroma, the ‘Food of the Gods’, due to its theobromine content. Theobromine will give you energy, boost your mood and enhance blood flow, and it's complemented by the divine anandamide (‘the bliss chemical’), serotonin, dopamine, and phenylethylamine (‘the love molecule’). Talk about a heart opener! Cacao is super nutrient-dense too - containing high levels of magnesium, iron, copper, manganese, potassium, zinc, and even some vitamin b12, which is extra important for those on a plant-based diet.
Cacao butter gives you a source of healthy fats, polyphenols and antioxidants, and if you choose to use coconut butter instead - beware - it is so delicious you'll want to eat it on its own! Coconut butter contains many of the health-loving properties of coconut oil, as an antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, immunity supporting superfood.
The Genetix Marine Collagen+ was carefully designed to support your beauty goals - with the bioactive marine collagen peptides, your body will soak up this delicious collagen with gusto, to nourish your skin, hair and nails. It's supported with the addition of B vitamins, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D3 and vitamin E, plus magnesium and calcium, to support your inner radiance.
Cinnamon is a well-known antimicrobial beauty ingredient (that tastes amazing!) and goji berries are known for their super berry status. Fun fact: Pistachios contain one of the highest amounts of melatonin, which can assist to regulate your sleep-wake cycle, so you start to feel sleepy when you should! More beauty sleep, anyone?
Enjoy these euphorically tasty ingredients and for extra indulgence, practice with a mindfulness meditation so you savour every last bite!
