Machu Picchu

+ about & ingredients

About: The name for our Machu Picchu blend is inspired by the geographic source of its key ingredients including raw cacao & maca as well as the idea that this blend will elevate your energy without giving you the jitters (a serving of cacao contains some natural caffeine, similar to 1/2 cup green tea) and increase cognitive activity and attention. This anti-oxidant-rich blend stimulates the mind, body, and spirit with raw organic cacao and other superfoods known for supporting cognitive function, energy and stress management, and the immune system. This blend includes the immune system supporting adaptogen Reishi mushroom and provides trace minerals sometimes difficult to get in a normal diet inlcuding zinc, manganese, magnesium, iron, B vitamins, fungal polysaccharides, and plant polyphenols and terpenes. We also add just a bit of the "magical" substance known as shilajit or in India, the "destroyer of weakness". Shilajit is found exclusively in the high Himalayan mountains and is rich in fulvic and humic acid which are known to be key drivers of cell renewal and energy production.

Ingredients: Raw organic cacao, organic yellow maca root, organic ashwagandha, organic reishi mushrooms, shilajit.
