TRADITIONAL CHINESE WISDOM
Cordyceps are an edible and medicinal mushroom-like fungus that has been described in ancient Chinese and Tibetan medical literature as the treatment for many ailments, yet are most well known as an aphrodisiac. More recently a study at Stanford medical school found an increase of the 17-ketosteroid in the urine of men taking it, which indicates an increase in the subject's sexual drive and function and directly affects the sexual center of the brain and sexual organs. Controlled animal tests offer credible evidence that regular use decreases recovery time between orgasms and increases the volume of semen production. In another study on human subjects, 64 percent of Cordyceps eaters reported an enhanced sex drive.
FAIR TRADE ORGANIC CHIA
The best chia in the world - with the greatest nutrient density and omega 3 quality - comes from carefully-managed, high-altitude farms with excellent soil quality. Like cold-water fish rich in omega 3s, chia also increases its omega 3 production in cold climates. That's why our organically-grown chia comes exclusively from two farms in Ecuador and Argentina with some of the longest track records in chia experimentation and science. Each farm continues to demonstrate real care and skill for producing a superior chia seed. These farms also boast exceptional soil quality, along with the ideal altitude and climate to ensure a robust, nutritious chia seed.
FOOD OF THE GODS
Revered by ancient cultures as the food of the gods, Cacao was once traded as currency. Today, science is catching up with the ancients: these sugarless treats provide more cell-protecting antioxidants than any food on earth! Plus they contain mood-boosting phytochemicals (including theobromine and anandamide) and they provide some of the same molecules your brain produces when you're happy or in love.
KAPI KACHUH AKA MUCUNA PRURIENS
Historically this tropical legume, popular in Ayurvedic medicine, has been used to elevate sperm count and function as an aphrodisiac. Due to significant antioxidant activity in the plant, Mucuna-Kapi Kachu has been found to inhibit the oxidation of lipids in the body and promote healthy neurotransmitter function. Mucuna-Kapi Kachu is well known in medical communities for its action as an L-dopa precursor, helping to promote dopamine production which may improve mood, muscle coordination and sexual function and have a positive effect on individuals with Parkinson’s disease. Additional effects of the legume include improved muscle building and strength, heightened focus and alertness, improved coordination and support for male fertility.
