Endurance Elixir

The health benefits of nettle are innumerable. It is a rich source of potassium, important for conducting electricity in the body. Nettle also has high levels of calcium, beta-carotene, and amino acids.

The first food that most mammals receive after birth is colostrum. Colostrum has hundreds of components which naturally promote health, strength, and vitality. It boosts the immune system and contributes to creating lean body mass.

Chia Seeds contain fiber, amino acids and essential fatty acids – great endurance food once used by the Aztecs. Chia balances blood sugar and ensures steady energy.

Bee pollen contains more than 96 different nutrients, including every nutrient that is required to sustain human life. Made up of 40% protein, nearly all of it usable by the body without any further breakdown or metabolism.

Mucuna Pruriens is well known for its wide range of tonifying, strengthening, mood-lifting and all around beneficial properties.  It is commonly used to build muscle strength, it increases lactation in breastfeeding women, generally deepens sleep, and balances all three ayurvedic doshas!
