WHAT IS THIS CHOCOLATE GOODNESS and WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Cacao / chocolate has the ability to aid health in many ways; mood enhancement, immune support, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory, plus with high levels of magnesium which helps improve nerve and muscle health, energy production, and bone health (to name but a few). Some of the compounds in Cacao even work together, for example the Theobromine in Cacao aids the absorption of the polyphenols (anti-oxidants) in Cacao.
In this blend the whole bean is used so you get all the benefits. It's the gift that keeps on giving.
Our Organic Cacao is certified Organic by the EU and comes from Peru, it's some of the best tasting available.
Medicinal Mushrooms/Fungi have a lot of health benefits in many areas, but each fungi has the ability to be slightly more effective in a certain area. So in the depths of The Grove HQ, we forged a range that took the benefits of Cacao and built upon them by adding the phenomenal benefits of The Grove Organic Reishi (Medicinal Mushroom).
Combining Cacao and Reishi makes the perfect foundation to help combat the stressors of unavoidable modern day life, especially when blending in some more of the most potent super-foods / super-herbs available. To ensure you get the very best that these products have to offer and a proper dose, we have kept the number of ingredients to a minimum;
See below or click on the link above for more information about each ingredient.
Cacao, Reishi and Ashwagandha are all classified as IMMUNOMODULATORs, these are known for strengthening, balancing, supporting and regulating the immune system, optimising immune response. These 3 ingredients plus Mucuna Pruriens are also classified as ADAPTOGENs, helping the body adapt to stress, it allows for an increased tolerance to mental exhaustion, enhancing attention and mental endurance.
The Grove Organic Reishi, is the Ganoderma Luicidum (Red Reishi) strain, it has been grown organically away from harmful pollution and is certified organic by the USDA. Reishi has been studied for many health benefits, for example; anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-fatigue, DNA support, organ health (brain and liver), hormone balancing and cognitive performance. Reishi is a great all rounder of our Medicinal Mushroom/Fungi family, which has earned it the traditional Chinese name the "Mushroom of Immortality; elixir of life”, used throughout history by Emperors, Taoist monks and sages, not only for the various health benefits but also for balancing the bodies spiritual and negative energy, as well as calming the mind. The Chinese also calling Reishi "Lingzhi" meaning; ling "spirit, spiritual; soul; miraculous; sacred; divine; mysterious; efficacious; effective" and zhi "(traditional) plant of longevity". Making it perfect in our CHOCELIX FLOW.
Beetroot is well known for its health benefits, although it is not touting such accreditations as Immunomodulation or adaptogenic, we still like to think of them as 'Super-beets' and are a staple in our pantry because Beetroots contain the very important bio-active compound betaine. This is the little compound responsible for most of the wonderful effects Beetroot has to offer, acting as a methyl donor and with science suggesting quite a few benefits; highly effective as an anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, immune support, liver support and nourishment, cognitive and physical performance (supported by another bioactive compound found in large quantities in beetroot: nitrates) as beetroot has been directly linked a potential ability to aid aerobic activity, as well as supporting efficiency and oxygenation of muscles.
Ashwagandha is one of the pillars of Traditional Ayurveda medicine. Ayurveda suggests that Ashwagandha may improve the function of several organs such as the heart and kidneys, it has also commonly been used to improve libido in men and metabolism in women as well as being well as a brain tonic (known as a Medhya Rasayana—nootropic). Studies support traditional claims, reporting Ashwagandha may; help with cognitive and memory enhancement, be an anti-inflammatory, relieve stress, support quality sleep (by enhancing REM sleep) and help nourish the immune system.
Mucuna pruriens has also been used for 1000's of years within Ayurveda. Science has also carried out extensive research on Mucuna, it's main notable compound is the l-dopa, Mucuna contains approx. 5%. To make dopamine the body naturally converts tyrosine to l-dopa which then crosses the blood brain barrier to be converted to dopamine. Sometimes this conversion is inhibited and so supplemental l-dopa may be beneficial. Due to this effect, l-dopa has been studied for its use in protecting and restoring brain function (for example; Parkinsons patients are often given l-dopa supplements). In addition to its ability to help nourish the brain, further scientific studies have shown to support some of the traditional uses, as it may be effective in helping reduce stress, act as an aphrodisiac and help the reproductive system of both men and women, help balance hormones and the effects of diabetes.

THE HISTORY OF THE INGREDIENTS OF CHOCELIX FLOW.
Detailed information about the historic uses and origin of each of the products can be found on the respective product pages. Below is a brief snapshot for each and a link to their pages for more information.
It’s hard to pin down the exact origin of Cacao due to wild and diverse amazonian landscape where it comes from. Although, archeological digs have been able to trace it to the Olmec, Mayan and Aztecs, between 1900-900BC, where cacaos active ingredient theobromine has been found in their pottery and ceramics - pretty cool! Obviously Cacao powder and butter are direct products from Cacao beans being broken down and separated into the 2 products, so the history is relating directly to cacao rather than the Cacao Powder directly. Click the above link and head to the history tab for more information.
Reishi is one of the oldest medicinal mushrooms in the Chinese medicinal world. Studied extensively with many varieties, names, stories and fables in its honor. But one thing that has been constant throughout history is its immune function and incredible healing properties. Click the above link and head to the history tab for more information.
