Holy Cacao Herbal Elixir
Brand Qori Inti
Holy Cacao Herbal Elixir features the darling of modern superfoods, cacao, in an euphoria-enhancing, energizing, and nutritive tonic elixir. But not all cacao is created equal, and most chocolate is not very medicinal. This elixir is created from organic, forest-grown, heirloom cacao grown in Peru by farmers who are paid living wages. This pristine, raw cacao is minimally processed using a dual extraction method to obtain both the lipophilic and hydrophilic properties, yielding a final product that offers a more complete holistic expression of the botanical. This process allows for the full gamut of cacao's superfood elements to be bio-available: fat, sugars, carbohydrates, protein, a high energy content of 18500 kj/kg (2000 kcal/lb), lots of fiber, B vitamins, flavonoids, and anti-oxidant substances (cacao has more antioxidant activity than any food tested so far, including blueberries, red wine, and tea.) On the mental and emotional levels, medicinal cacao greatly enhances mood and an overall sense of well-being by the release of certain neurotransmitters including: 1) Endorphin - natural pain relief and helps to produce a pleasurable feeling; 2) Anandamide - known as the “Bliss Chemical” because it is released by the brain when we feel happy; 3) Serotonin - acts as an antidepressant, promotes joy, and is a secret to great digestion; and 4) Phenylethylamine - acts as a mild mood elevator and helps increase focus and alertness.
Key Benefits: Energizing + Excellent General Tonic + Protects from Environmental & Metabolic Toxins + Helps to Repair & Resist Free Radical Damage + Greatly Enhances Mood & Overall Sense of Well-Being + Nutritive, Emollient, & Diuretic + Superior Source of Bio-Available Magnesium + Promotes Cardiovascular Health + Increases Oxygenation of Body Tissues
Ayurveda typically views chocolate as an ama (toxin) producing substance that can potentially aggravate all 3 doshas when taken in excess because of the inclusion of white sugar. However, Holy Cacao is made from raw cacao; the pure, unadulterated bean pod of the Theobroma cacao fruit. Its primary rasa (taste) is bitter. It has a heating effect on the body and a pungent post-digestive effect. Cacao possesses a stimulating potential for the mind and body. The neurotransmitter-modulating properties of cacao allow substances like serotonin to remain in our bloodstream for more time, producing an overall sense of wellbeing and contentment. It acts on Tarpaka Kapha, the subdosha that governs calmness, happiness and stability. Perhaps this is why chocolate has been a go-to food for menstruating women as well for many during times of emotional fluctuations. Cacao can be considered a Medhya rasayana or mind-rejuvenating tonic.
Recommended Usage: Take 30-60 drops, 1-3 times daily with water. Increase dosage as needs, especially to support a mental and emotional pick-me-up, assists in relief of symptoms associated with PMS, or as a general body/mind tonic with an emphasis on the kidneys, muscles, heart.
Ingredients: Heirloom cacao seed (Theobroma cacao), Amazonian artesian spring water alcohol, stevia (Stevia rebaudiana) leaf
