Mushrooms have been used for centuries by ancient cultures for their health benefits. But not everyone can appreciate their bitter taste.
Four Sigmatic Mushroom Hot Cacao allows you to enjoy a nice cup of hot cacao with the benefits of the mushroom cordyceps. The cacao and cordyceps work very well together and are combined with spices that add extra depth of flavor and have energizing effects.
The potent cordyceps is a dual-extract of the widely studied, liquid fermented Cs-4 strain.
This product is suitable for vegans and people on the paleo diet, as no grains or caterpillars were used during the production process.
The final extract is guaranteed to contain at least 40% polysaccharides (more than 15% beta-glucans) and 15% cordycepic acid.
To ensure that you can get the most out of this mushroom, a process of dual-extraction has been performed to make this normally hard-to-digest product more bioavailable. Using alcohol and water extraction, all of the fat- and water-soluble compounds have been made bioavailable. After removing the alcohol and concentrating the extract, it is sprayed dry into a powder form.
This product uses Cs-4 strand, which is the most studied strain of cordyceps. The mycelium is cultivated through liquid fermentation in an optimal nutrient solution that contains amino acids and sugars to feed it.
Cacao is rich in minerals, vitamins and useful plant polyphenols. High-quality cacao has many health benefits and is also very tasty when used right. This cacao was grown in Indonesia and is minimally processed.
Coconut sugar is a mineral-rich and low-glycemic alternative to processed sugars. Coconut sugar is made by evaporating coconut water. What remains, is the coconut sugar. A single portion of Mushroom Hot Cacao only contains 2.5 grams of sugar for a hint of sweetness and a nice flavor.
Guarana, due to its caffeine content, helps to enhance mental performance. One portion of Mushroom Hot Cacao with Cordyceps contains 20 mg of caffeine from guarana.
Cayenne pepper adds some spice and heat tot he hot chocolate drink.
Espresso style: Add the content of one packet to 100 mL of hot water. This gives a very intense chocolate flavor, like Four Sigmatic intended.
Creamy: If you prefer a milder flavor, add a creamer product such as almond/coconut milk or normal milk. You can also add butter with a blender, like Bulletproof Coffee.
In other preparations: You can add the mix to other beverages and desserts to add a deep chocolate flavor.
Take Four Sigmatic Cordyceps Mushroom Hot Cacao as an afternoon pick-me-up or as a tasty treat when you crave something sweet. You can also use this beverage to boost your alertness and mental or physical performance.
