The Ideal Blend Containing:
Raw Cacao Powder
Cacao powder is not the same as the cocoa powder often found on supermarket shelves. Cacao is the raw, pure form of chocolate. Made from the fruit of the cacao tree, cacao is minimally processed. In contrast, cocoa powder contains cacao that has been heated and processed to create a smoother chocolatey flavor. Eating cacao powder is a great way to boost your intake of beneficial nutrients.
Free radicals are small harmful particles that are among other things produced during the combustion of nutrients. Intensive exercise provides an increased dose of free radicals in the body. Free radicals cause an oxidation process. This process is partially ruined by some for the development of cancer (Lobo, Patil et Al, 2010)
Antioxidants can be regarded as protectors and fighters of free radicals. That is why it is often recommended for athletes to consume a portion of antioxidants just after a workout.
Raw Cacao powder is a truly antioxidants rich super food. It has an amazing ORAC score of 98,000 per 100g. ORAC (from the US Department of Agriculture) measures the ability of antioxidants to absorb free radicals, which cause cell and tissue damage and can lead to diseases such as cancer.
Ashwagandha is a traditional herb often found in India, that scientifically substantiated that it increases testosterone.
An important factor for success among men in the gym is the height of the hormone testosterone. This hormone provides the amount of strength, speed of muscle gains and last but not least the libido.
The natural level of testosterone peaks around the age of 25, after which it decreases every year. Practicing strength sports stimulates the production of testosterone, but there are more ways to increase this in a natural way.
Studies in infertile men have shown that their testosterone level increased by 17% (Dongres, Aptikar, & Kulkarni, 2013). The daily dose is 675mg per day according to the research.
Maqui Berry Powder
Maqui (pronounced "mah-kee") is an evergreen shrub found natively in Chile and Argentina. It has a typical sweet flavor and it is recognizable by its dark intense purple color.
Maqui’s purple pigment is from Antocyanins. In both in vitro and in vivo research trials, anthocyanins have demonstrated marked ability to reduce cancer cell proliferation and to inhibit tumor formation (Lila, 2004)
The typical sweet flavor of the Maqui acts as a seasoning for the whole recipe. It causes the product to smell, color and taste like a fruity desert. Without adding any type of sugar!
Hemp seeds are the seeds of the hemp plant, Cannabis sativa. They are from the same species as cannabis (marijuana) but a different variety. However, they contain no amounts of THC, the psychoactive compound in marijuana. Hemp seeds are exceptionally nutritious and rich in healthy fats, protein and various minerals.
Nine out of ten Dutch people don’t eat the daily advised amount of fiber (NRC, 2006). Fibers provide good digestion. Good digestion is necessary in order to be able to use the food optimally as a strength athlete. Also, eating fiber causes less fluctuation in blood sugar levels, resulting in a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes (Zhang et al, 2016).
Hemp Seed are a good source of both soluble and insoluble fibers (Callaway, 2004). In the product they also provide structure and bite.
Bee Pollen are grains that produce bees from pollen in combination with nectar and special enzymes. They are known to be used ever since ancient China. At present, they are applied in a branch of complementary and alternative medicine - apitherapy
Bee pollen contains a combination of different vitamins and minerals which provide an increased resistance (Kocot et al, 2018).
After practicing strength sports, the body is exhausted, full of free radicals and susceptible to diseases. Bee pollen can perfectly contribute to a post workout resistance booster.
Ceylon Cinnamon Powder
Ceylon Cinnamon, or "true cinnamon," is native to Sri Lanka and southern parts of India. It's made from the inner bark of the Cinnamomum verum tree. It’s high in cinnamaldehyde, which is thought to be responsible for most of cinnamon’s health benefits.
Thanks to the presence of chromium Cinnamon has a stabilizing effect on your blood sugar level and helps your body to deal better with sugar by converting it into energy. Something that with our daily towering sugar consumption is not a luxury. (Kirkham S, 2015)
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the naturally occurring cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. It is a 21-carbon terpenophenolic compound which is formed following decarboxylation from a cannabidiolic acid precursor, although it can also be produced synthetically. Several countries have modified their national controls to accommodate CBD as a medicinal product. To date, there is no evidence of recreational use of CBD or any public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD (World Health Organization, 2017).
Cannabinoids work on receptors that perform and support various functions in the body. A deficiency of the endocannabinoid body can cause various complaints and illnesses (Navarro G, 2018).
CBD could have beneficials effect when practicing strength sports. The relaxing effect of CBD could reduce the stress hormone Cortisol (Zuardi et al, 1993). A reduced amount of cortisol stimulates the production of testosterone (Lippi et al 2016). An increased cortisol level stimulates the body to store fat (Yener et al, 2017).
During a workout bodybuilders will often aim for a pump feeling. This feeling arises from the amount of blood in the desired trained muscles. It is commonly known as a great feeling which causes a release of Endorphins.
