Organic cocoa powder**
The main ingredient in chocolate production, cocoa powder, is derived from the crushed fermented beans of the Theobroma cacao tree. During processing, cocoa butter, or fat, is removed, leaving only pure cocoa, which is then finely ground into a powder.
Rich in flavor, antioxidants and nutrients, cocoa powder is a popular ingredient that's used in a wide variety of recipes around the world. According to a study published in the journal Frontiers in Pharmacology, cocoa powder is rich in antioxidant polyphenols and flavonoids. These antioxidants help combat oxidative stress and promote healthy heart and brain functions.
Organic maca root powder**
Maca root powder is derived from the fleshy, radish-like taproot of the Lepidium meyenii plant. This yellow cruciferous vegetable belongs to the same family as cabbage and broccoli. Maca is also known as the “Incan superfood” because of its rich phytonutrient content and remarkable adaptogenic properties.
A 2014 study that appeared in the journal Carbohydrate Polymers found that the polysaccharides in maca root extract have high antioxidant activity. Maca root also contains other antioxidants, such as flavonoids, phenols, glucosinolates and vitamins C and E. In addition, maca can support your body's production of natural antioxidants, such as superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione.
Organic reishi powder**
One of the most popular functional mushrooms on the planet, reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) is revered as a symbol of well-being. Also known as lingzhi mushroom, reishi mushroom is a rich source of beta-glucans, plant sterols, polysaccharides and triterpenes. It also contains high amounts of dietary fiber, amino acids, lipids and vitamins B2 and C. Due to its wealth of nutrients, reishi mushroom can support the health of many biological systems. It also possesses potent adaptogenic properties that promote a healthy immune system.
Organic chaga powder **
With one of the highest Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) scores of any superfood, chaga mushroom (Inonotus obliquus) is one of the best natural sources of immune-supporting antioxidants, such as tripertenes. Chaga is traditionally consumed as an herbal tea and was even used as a coffee substitute during the first and second World Wars. According to a study published in the Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicine, supplementing with chaga mushrooms is a good way to support overall health.
Organic shiitake powder**
One of the most popular mushrooms in the world, shiitake mushroom (Lentinula edodes) makes up over a quarter of all mushroom cultivation in the world. Also known as black mushroom or oakwood mushroom, shiitake is highly prized for its many health benefits, as well as for its rich, savory taste. Shiitake contains a unique polysaccharide called lentinan, which is known to support healthy immune function. Some of the potent antioxidants found in shiitake include phenols, alkaloids and diterpenoids.
Organic lion’s mane powder **
The lion's mane mushroom (Hericium erinaceus) gets its name from its white, shaggy appearance, which resembles a lion's mane. This functional mushroom contains high levels of polysaccharides and bioactive compounds that promote heart, brain and gut health. According to a study that appeared in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, lion's mane mushroom can support healthy energy levels and uplift your mood.
Organic cordyceps powder**
Since ancient times, people have used cordyceps mushrooms (Cordyceps militaris) to promote healthy immune function. The antioxidant-rich cordyceps can also combat oxidative stress and support optimal athletic performance, stamina and endurance. Because cordyceps contain a wide array of antioxidants, functional enzymes and vitamins, they can help support the healthy functions of your kidneys, skin, heart and liver.
Organic maitake powder**
Sometimes referred to as dancing mushroom, maitake mushroom (Grifola frondosa) possesses adaptogenic properties that can help support a healthy stress response. This functional mushroom is packed with dietary fiber that promotes healthy digestive function. It is also an excellent source of niacin, folate, potassium, phosphorus and vitamin D. In addition, maitake mushroom contains high levels of beta-glucans and antioxidants that promote healthy immune function.
Organic turkey tail mushroom powder**
Just as the lion's mane mushroom resembles the shaggy mane of a white lion, the vibrantly colored, wavy rosette-shape of the turkey tail mushroom (Coriolus versicolor) bears a resemblance to the fully unfurled tail of a wild turkey.
This leaf-like fungus has a long history of use in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as an herb that promotes overall health. Due to its high prebiotic content, turkey tail mushroom can support digestive health. Aside from being a rich source of antioxidants, turkey tail mushroom also contains high levels of immune-supporting polysaccharopeptides (PSP) like krestin (PSK).
Low glycemic organic coconut sugar**
Groovy Bee® Organic Cocoa Energize is also gently sweetened with organic coconut sugar, one of the best alternatives to regular sugar. With a glycemic index of only 35, coconut sugar is a low glycemic sweetener that's ideal for people who are watching their sugar intake. Unlike stevia and other sweeteners, it does not have a bitter aftertaste.
