Waking up in the morning and drinking a tonic is a must for someone who wants to bring his or her wellness to another peak. Drinking adaptogenic herbs and mushrooms are a great gentle way to get nutrients in your diet. This particular tonic has a wide range of nourishing vitamins, minerals and fats. This drink can be made anytime of the day, but is best before 4 o’clock because the cacao can be a bit energizing.
We added raw cacao to the tonic, which is certainly very high in antioxidants, and it contains an abundance of magnesium and iron.
We also added mucuna puriens that contains a principle ingredient; L-Dopa, a naturally occurring amino acid that transforms into dopamine in the brain. It is also known to enhance brain function.
Reishi mushroom is known as the "queen healer mushroom". This mushroom is a great immune supporter. Reishi helps with balance within the body and inner strength.
We also added a touch of Cordyceps. This potent yang tonic helps with oxygenating the body and is known to build strong endurance.
The fat from the oil (whichever you choose) helps with nutrient absorption and keeps you full longer and is great for brain health.
- ½ teaspoon Reishi
- ½ teaspoon Cordyceps
- ½ teaspoon of Mucuna Pruriens
- 1 teaspoon of Raw Cacao
- 1 teaspoon of Ghee (or Grass-fed Butter, Coconut Oil)
- a pinch of Raw Vanilla Bean Powder
- a tiny pinch of Himalayan Pink Salt
- 1 cup of tea or milk (coconut milk)
- 1 tablespoon of Raw Honey or your sweetener of choice
We love using Sun Potion for our tonic ingredients.
