Daily use advised

Most people will experience improved energy and mood with the first use, but the real benefits of holistic health are realized with a consistent daily routine (1x-2x servings daily). over the course of 4 weeks, balance is simultaneously strengthened in multiple systems, generating holistic momentum. the longer you maintain lowered levels of reactive processes like stress and inflammation, the better your mind-body allocates resources towards reparative, proactive and performance processes. nutrient absorption improves, cortisol levels improve, energy and endurance improve, neurogenesis and neuroplasticity improve, circadian rhythm (sleep & wake cycle) improves, immune system intelligence strengthens and more. while the acute benefits of the adaptive cacao offer some quick benefits, a consistent routine helps improve baseline levels of health and wellness across the board.


Top Benefits.

Chronic stress / anxiety.

addressing stress and inflammation is at the core of our product development. we understand that so many of today's dysfunctions are caused or made worse by stress and inflammation. this is a truly holistic problem. reducing stress and inflammation is not an overnight process, but the results are widespread and highly impactful to everyday health, wellness and performance. weaving high quality adaptogens into your daily routine helps reduce the body's response to internal and external stressors, keeping cortisol levels lower and helping your mind-body allocate resources to rest, repair and growth (parasympathetic processes). with consistent reduction is stress, your mind-body shifts to a state of healing and elevated performance. digestion improves, sleep improves, immune response improves, energy improves, mood improves, detoxification improves, clarity and focus improves.

the same concept applies to inflammation levels. with consistent inflammation reduction, the body and mind are able to enter a state of healing and improved resource allocation. inflammation causes stress and stress causes inflammation, so when you address both at the same time, the benefits are compounded. it's truly amazing what the mind and body are capable of when the conditions are right. the right conditions created with a nutrient rich diet, lowered stress and lowered inflammation levels. while there are countless factors to optimizing health and wellness, the foundation to improvement is lowered stress and inflammation.

Digestion & gut health.

Acacia fiber and agave inulin are powerful forms of prebiotic fiber that help strengthen your healthy, low inflammatory microbiome. as your healthy gut bacteria strengthen, the bad bacteria is weakened. the more we learn about optimal health and performance, the more we understand the importance of healing your gut through a balanced microbiome. while acacia fiber and agave inulin are the two featured probiotics, 85% of the adaptive cacao ingredients are considered probiotic supplements for a healthy microbiome.

When gut health is optimized, nutrient absorption is optimized, inflammation is moderated, immune system intelligence is improved, brain fog decreases, cognitive function improves, athletic performance improves, bones are strengthened, sleep improves, anxiety decreases and more. gut health lays the foundation for all mental and physical health. strengthening your beneficial ^resident bacteria is one of the most important aspects to strengthening that foundation.

While probiotics are supplemental bacteria strains that help provide temporary balance to an otherwise unhealthy and inflammatory gut microbiome, their benefits come from "non-resident" microbes that will pass through the intestine. this means the benefits are temporary or transient. prebiotic fiber feeds and strengthens your resident microbiome, which stay in your intestine as a long term player in gut health. probiotics are very beneficial to supplementing the journey to better gut health, but prebiotic fiber is an absolute requirement for sustainable progress and long term gut health.

Additionally, reduced stress / anxiety pulls the mind-body into a proactive (parasympathetic) state where more energy/ resources are allocated to digestion and detox processes and healing the integrity of the gut lining. this further improves nutrient absorption and establishes balance in the gut microbiome.

Energy and endurance.

Sustainable mental and physical energy is a real measure of holistic health. you can only force energy with stimulants for so long. soon enough, the biological debt of regularly leaning on stimulants will catch up to you as the foundations of energy, endurance and mood are weakened. what does this look like? when you lack sustainable energy, it can feel like you're moving through molasses until you drink a coffee or energy drink. while stimulants offer some welcomed short term energy, it's clear they stress your adrenals and push your brainwaves into an inefficient and more reactive state (high beta - gamma). stimulants are like pressing on the gas in first gear, you will feel more energy and clarity, but you burn through energy quickly and regular use can accelerate wear and tear on the mind - body. this results in a "crash" that people will often counter with more stimulants. this continual pressure often results in generalized anxiety, low baseline energy, digestion and an overall stressed nervous system.

Cordyceps and lion's mane help promote atp production, oxygenate the blood, promote blood flow to the brain and calm the nervous system. together, this synergy promotes clear mental and physical energy without the consequences of stimulants. on a deeper level, cordyceps and lions mane can help reset your circadian rhythm, which improves your cortisol cycle throughout the day. a smoother cortisol rhythm allows for deeper sleep at night and natural energy in the morning with better energy management throughout the day.

To be clear, we're not against good coffee, but caffeine is a very short term boost that puts additional stress on your adrenals. this additional stress is not good for people who already struggle with fatigue or anxiety. a cup of coffee or two can be a beautiful thing for otherwise balanced people with stable energy and strong resilience to stress. if you're a big fan of the coffee kick (like i am), adding adaptive cacao directly to your coffee (or drinking after your morning coffee) will help protect your adrenals and nervous system from the impact of caffeine. replacing coffee or including adaptive cacao in your routine can significantly improve your acute and long term energy.

Focus & clarity.

Improved blood flow to the brain with an emphasis on the prefrontal cortex gives more energy to the regions of your brain responsible for analytical thinking, attention, impulse control, emotional control and more. when you're studying, presenting, training, or doing anything cerebral, maintaining upper brain connection is critical. you need to focus on all the variables of the task / topic without impulsive distractions, mental fatigue or giving authority to the lower brain (fear center). analytical processing requires upper brain control. if you're in a reactive state (sympathetic, lower brain control), its difficult to maintain objectivity and a holistic perspective, so you're more likely to rush an incomplete solution, tossing out countless variables that would influence a well thought solution. anybody who has drank too much coffee can relate to being "overly amped" and you can't keep your thoughts straight. this is not a good place to be. your mind will unproductively race, then you're tired without getting much accomplished.

Pulling the brainwaves into a more analytical and creative frequency allows you to process more inputs before responding. the alpha - low beta frequencies are far more efficient and allow for upper brain control. you have noticed some of your best ideas and clarity happen when you're on a walk, jog or hike or in the shower or when you lay down in bed. in all these "states" your brainwaves are calming into the lower beta - alpha frequencies where analytical and creating processing are strongest. maintaining lower stress levels, calmer nervous system and increased blood flow to the upper brain significantly improves analytical processing, focus, clarity and mental endurance.

New habit forming.

Increased neurogenesis and neuroplasticity profoundly reduce internal resistance to change which is a big deal when you're working to implement a new habit / routine. anyone who has gone through a process of self improvement knows how difficult it can be. whether you're waking up earlier to exercise, carving out time each night to read, cleaning up your diet, getting more organized or simply practicing gratitude, there will be internal resistance and mental challenges. building new neural networks and promoting plasticity in your existing networks will significantly help reinforce discipline and overcome challenges in your new habit / routine. this mental growth and flexibility, combined with all the benefits listed above makes lifestyle changes much smoother. still, lasting self improvement is difficult. the adaptive cacao is a powerful tool to implement positive change but will not make it effortless.

Real mushrooms. 

Therapeutic mushrooms are becoming very popular. like most natural remedies that become popular in the mainstream, the industry is being flooded with low quality, low therapeutic value mushrooms. the majority mushrooms test very low in beta-glucan and active compounds. when a mushroom tests high in polysaccharide content, but low in beta-glucan content, it's basically an exotic potato. high in starch, low in therapeutic value. 

Our mushrooms are grown by the world's top respected mushroom farm. we literally use the best mushrooms in the world. certified organic, always above 25% total beta-glucan content which makes up at least 70% of the polysaccharide content. these are real mushrooms and they pack real benefits.
