From the company e3Live has been around for a while but is just now growing in popularity due to the Blue Majik latte and unicorn beverages that have popped up in recent months on social media.

Chaga, reishi, cordyceps…these fungi’s are having all the fun in 2017! 😉 Four Sigmatic‘s Mushroom Coffee blends and Purely Elizabeth’s new medicinal mushroom granola bars (popping up on shelves this summer) are just a few of the products getting on the medicinal mushroom train. Medicinal mushrooms have been scientifically shown to hold anti-cancer, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and liver protective activities.
(Hardwood OR coconut ash derived) Though not necessarily nutrient dense, it does pack a lot of uses – think natural teeth whitener, use in a fresh pressed juice to up the detox benefits, or mix with water and honey for an easy and effective pore-cleansing DIY face mask!

Think: ashwaganda, maca root and schisandra. Adaptogens relieve stress by modulating the release of stress hormones from the adrenal glands. Let’s be real, 2017 has been STRESSFUL.

A product we love is Moon Juice’s Power Dust to help balance life’s crazy.
We’re SO ready for summer, sun and superfoods! How about you?
