Who doesn’t love chocolate?!
On my trip to the Valley this week, I stopped by Harmonic Arts Botanical Dispensary to pick up a few goodies. I am so excited to be trying their Drinking Chocolate With 5 Mushroom Blend. I have heard only good things.
A delicious cup of cocoa with the bonus of not one, but 5 super mushrooms! According to the package,
“The healing power of mushrooms blended with the blissful qualities of raw cacao is one of those perfect combinations. The chocolate acts as a carrier, helping to drive the mushrooms deeper into the body, and the mushrooms soften the stimulating qualities of Chocolate.
When using mushrooms as a superfood or medicine, much of the research and clinical experience shows that they are more effective when taken as a multi-mushroom combination. As many of the superfood mushrooms contain similar chemistry, the combination gives a more full spectrum of the polysaccharides, triglycerides and other phytonutrients they contain.
Synergistically they are working together to enhance the overall immunomodulating potential and antipathogenic qualities that this group of healing mushrooms are most known for.”
This Harmonic Arts chocolate blend includes reishi, cordyceps, turkey tail, chaga, and lion’s mane mushrooms.
The reishi mushroom is known for improving your liver function and detoxification. More importantly, some studies suggest that the reishi mushroom not only inhibits the growth of cancer tumours, but that its active compounds will destroy existing cancer cells.
Cordyceps mushrooms also work as detoxifiers. They boost your immune system, improve your lung function, thereby increasing your intake of oxygen. Perfect for all those cells the cancer is depriving of oxygen. Cordyceps mushrooms also act as an aphrodisiac. Chocolate and aphrodisiacs? Uh oh. Look out world!
The beautiful turkey tail mushroom is a super immune booster. Having a healthy immune system enables your body to recognize and destroy cancer cells. It also aids in digestion to ensure that your body is being nourished.
The chaga mushroom, known as the King of Medicinal Mushrooms, it is one of the most powerful antioxidants available. It helps to repair your body on so many levels, and brings it back in to balance.
The lion’s mane mushroom improves digestion, boosts your immune system, is an anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant.
The Harmonic Arts Drinking Chocolate With 5 Mushroom Blend is said to be delicious hot or cold. Sounds good to me. I will let you know!
