Let’s Talk Ingredients
The superstar of this latte is Chaga Mushroom!
1. Wildcrafted Chaga Mushroom Extract
This may be one of the most important anti-aging and immune-enhancing mushrooms ever discovered due to its high level of polysaccharides, antioxidants, and betulinic acid.
Chaga is a remarkable medicinal mushroom that grows in living trees. It resembles a large piece of burnt charcoal, which is why it’s sometimes referred to as the “tinder mushroom”. Chaga grows abundantly on nearly all species of birch found in the colder forests of the northern hemisphere. In Siberian folklore, chaga is considered to be the “King of the Mushrooms” and has a long history of use in Chinese medicine.
The mycelium of the mushroom provides special compounds and metabolites that function to support longevity, immunity, beauty, and radiant health.*
Chaga Mushroom is supportive to:
- Immune system function*
- Healthy aging*
- Eye and skin health*
- Brain function*
- Cardiovascular health*
- Digestive health*
- Liver health*
- Energy levels*
Coffee contains high levels of antioxidants called polyphenols, which support decreased oxidative stress in the body. Decreased oxidative stress supports a healthy inflammatory response within the body, which in turn may support a reduced risk of long-term disease and promote healthy aging. The caffeine in coffee benefits the brain by entering it and blocking adenosine while stimulating dopamine and glutamate. This is believed to slow age-related cognitive decline by preventing the buildup of beta-amyloid plaque, which is associated with damaging nerve cells in the brain and progressive neurological decline.
3. Longevity Coffee® Blast
Here’s where the superherbs come in! There’s no need to pull out bag after bag of expensive herbs from the closet though. Just add two scoops of Coffee Blast and you’re good to go. Coffee Blast includes the following body-supporting ingredients:
