Adaptogens have been around for millennia in ancient Chinese, Tibetan and Ayurvedic medicine. Known as agents of well being, they have often been incorporated into tinctures, teas and elixirs.
Cocorau, a delicious wellness-focused chocolate maker out of New York City, recently introduced a powerful powder supplement of wildcrafted and organic adaptogens.
The Holy Body Powder is a tasty blend of select ingredients to help you navigate the ups and downs of everyday life that caffeine can sometimes aggravate.
Known for incredible raw cacao combined with superfood, available on Treatmo, founder Konstance Zeller who is originally from Austria, has struggled with a weak immune system throughout her life. She finally took health into her own hands by switching to a predominantly plant-centric diet and by learning to craft food to support optimal body function and beauty.
Her latest creation, Holy Body Powder, is a supplement to help regulate stress. As a flavor maker, Ms. Zeller has a proven mastery over making things taste good that also make you feel good. Maybe that's why we're addicted to the Holy Body Powder, especially when mixed with NotMilk -- also on Treatmo and based in New York City.
The powder has a slightly sweet taste from the coconut nectar and monk sugar, chocolatey overtones from cacao, and earthy accents from the herbs, plants and minerals. Taste tested and approved, the Immortal Elixir Holy Body Powder ships nationwide via Treatmo. You can also organize local pick up if you're passing through New York City -- all through the app.
Supporting energy, immunity, strength and vitality, Holy Body Powder is an elixir to add to water or almond milk. Give your adrenal glands a helping hand. This is a fantastic blend to mix into a weekly routine or health regimen.
Here are a few of the ingredients that really intrigued us:
Ho Shou Wu - an ancient Chinese herb with anti-aging and fertility benefits. This herb is also one that claims to help prevent grey hair.
Rhodiola - an herb remedy that boosts energy, attention span, mood and productivity.
Shilajit - also known as mineral pitch is a powerful mineral sourced from resin of the Altai, Himalaya or Caucasus mountains. Its benefits range include anti-aging, blood purification and rejuvenation. It has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for 3000 years.
Monk Sugar - also known as lo han guo, is a small round fruit grown in Southeast Asia. It's up to 200x sweeter than sugar and has 0 calories. It has also been used safely in Eastern medicine for years as a cold and digestive aid.
Gratitude and kindness are the core of Cocorau, and you can experience that passion in their products.
