Winter is here and the cold weather has left many people feeling run down. It's time to get cozy with a steaming cup of mushroom-infused hot chocolate! This drink is rich in antioxidants, beta-glucans and terpenes, all of which help to restore your body's immune function. Not only that, but it tastes sweet and delicious while warming you from the inside out! Here's what in it:
Cacao powder is rich in antioxidants called polyphenols, which have been shown to help boost the immune system. It's also an excellent source of magnesium and iron. Cacao is also a source of theobromine, which is beneficial for relaxation and cognitive function.
Collagen is a complete protein that helps to build and repair connective tissue, including skin, bones and joints. It's easily digested by the body with an extremely high absorption rate of 97%. Collagen is tasteless and odourless, so it won't alter the flavour of your hot chocolate.
Qi Master Blend mushrooms contain a mix of five potent medicinal mushroom extracts, including Reishi, Lion's Mane, Cordyceps, Turkey Tail and Chaga. These mushrooms have been shown to help improve immune function, energy levels and cognitive function. The Master Blend pairs well with cacao and collagen for a delicious, warm drink!
Maple syrup is a natural sweetener that contains antioxidants and minerals such as zinc, magnesium, potassium and manganese. It also has a low glycemic index, meaning it doesn't cause blood sugar spikes like other sugars do. Maple syrup is a delicious way to add some sweetness to your hot chocolate!
Cinnamon is a delicious spice that has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It also helps to regulate blood sugar levels, making it a perfect addition to your hot chocolate! Cinnamon has been shown to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in the body, so it's a great way to warm up this winter.
