Criollo Cacao - is the most sacred of all the cacaos. It is rooted in ancient history, coming from the Criollo tree. Our cacao is ethically and sustainably sourced and grown in a way that is aligned to traditional farming practices. To scale, it has 40X more antioxidants than blueberries (!!!) and is very high in theobromine, which we think of as fertilizer for the brain. You really only need a small amount of cacao a day to make a difference! Cacao also houses more plant-based iron than any other food. Of course, pair it with something high in Vitamin C to make it more bioavailable (if you are using it for iron.)
Reishi - mushroom is something that can help stress levels and support your HPA axis. We source our mushrooms from a pristine lab in California.
Peruvian Maca - is incredible. It has been shown in studies to help increase libido, physical stamina, and balance cortisol levels. It is an adaptogen that supports your body’s HPA axis. People are surprised to know it’s a cruciferous veggie with such amazing benefits! Ours is grown in the Andes of Peru at an elevation of 14,000 feet above sea level. Industry-standard is 12,500 ft but the higher you go, typically the more nutrient-dense it becomes. We also use a gelatinized Maca because this is how Peruvians have prepared it for years. It takes the starch out and makes it 4X more nutrient-dense and easy on the digestion track.
Ashwagandha - is also known as Indian Ginseng to some. It is an adaptogen that is supportive of stress levels and boosting stamina levels. Unlike coffee, over time Ashwagandha helps give you a strength that comes from within.
He Shou Wu - This herb is powerful! You never want to overdo it. What can happen is people start to feel so good on He Shou Wu (also known as Fo Ti) so they take more and more and more. Like most Chinese Herbs, you need to be mindful of the dose! Too much can be taxing on the liver. We kept a safe dosage in mind, but if you have any liver issues or some type of estrogen cancer, or disease, it is not recommended to take it.
A new daily staple
This potion makes me feel so good. It has been an extra support and new nourishing daily habit for me as I’ve been tackling long-standing inflammation & gut issues for the last 6 months. It kind of feels like a gift to my body every morning I drink it. It’s comforting and soothing- I plan to always have this in my pantry. I love sharing a cup with friends and family when they come over too. It took me a little while to work up to making this a every-morning habit. Now I usually have one to completely replace my cup of coffee (sometimes after a cup of coffee). A dash of date syrup, few drops of stevia & oat/hemp milk and it’s delish. I follow up with a brain/focus potion in the early afternoon. I really believe in this product- thanks for making a clean and beneficial product!
Every morning I mix it in my coffee and I absolutely love the taste but also the mental clarity it provides.
My favorite adaptogen blend ever!!
I’ve been taking a potion around the time of my menstrual cycle starting for two weeks out of the month, for about 2 months now and I can tell a huge difference in my mood! I feel less anxious, calmer, more present with my emotions. I also notice a nice but not overwhelming boost in the morning! This will continue to be a staple in my routine, I love this product!
Such a Fun Routine
I have been taking the stress blend for over 8 months now, and wanted to take that time to truly test out the product before leaving my review. Throughout this time I've passed through higher and lower stress weeks/months and without fail I feel calmer and more grounded after I drink my stress blend. I LOVE that VF Potions encourages you to make this blend a daily reset ritual and think that being mindful while consuming really helps me activate my parasympathetic nervous system. That said, I'm not perfect at this and would often drink it while working or running out the door- even in a rush I noticed that I felt better after drinking my potion. Quality ingredients and no fillers makes me feel really good about this purchase every month. If you're going to give it a go I would recommend going all out and trying it around the same time every day for a month to test if it works for you. I did and I haven't gone back :).
This helps my anxiety attacks!!!
There are a number of reasons I recommend this product. 1. The people who make it are truly caring human beings who genuinely want and are, in my opinion, helping people! 2. The ingredients are incredible and wholesome. 3. The taste is earthy and great, I usually mix in some of my non-dairy coffee creamer so delicious!!! 4. Lastly, I've been suffering from really bad anxiety attacks and this potion helps! I don't over react anymore when something unexpected happens. I feel more mellow and at peace during the day and I can definitely tell the difference in my mood regulation. I'm much more relaxed but also much more happy. Thank you guys so, so much for creating this! You have a happy, repeat customer for sure!!
