Enhancement Blend is something special to me, it is like my go to morning multivitamin that makes me feel good inside. It enhances my wellbeing and you can feel it working throughout your body, especially if you combine the dose with a spoonfull of apple cider vinager.
Now I plan on sharing my special recipe with you all. In this post, I will explain to you each ingredient that is in the blend and what it is good for when it comes to holistic help and wellbeing.
Let’s start with the main ingredient, which gives it the majority of it’s taste…. Cacoa!
It smells like sweet chocolate. A nutrient dense energy boost- Cacao powder is full of beneficial compounds and provides a great source of magnesium, calcium, zinc, iron, copper and potassium. It is also one of the richest natural food sources of antioxidant flavonols. Cacao is a tropical tree native to Central and South America. Its fruit is best known as chocolate’s main ingredient, though it is increasingly consumed for its nutritional value as well as its taste. Cacao Powder and Cocoa powder are not the same thing, but you can substitute cacao for cocoa. Some differences between Cacao Powder and Cocoa Powder are that Cacao Powder is raw and does not contain the additives that are often in cocoa such as sugars, milk fat, hydrogenated oils and artificial flavorings. Cacao Powder is high in antioxidants and contains essential vitamins and minerals, while Cocoa Powder is stripped of the nutrients because it is processed. Cacao Powder is a healthy alternative to using cocoa powder.
The next ingredient is a white kratom strain (Thai). White strains are known for energizing you and giving you a smooth upper mood lift. Kratom is general is very beneficial for your body, including pain coverage and help with inflammation. So this Enhancement Blend is the best multivitamin ever because it comes with pain coverage, which for me who lives with chronic pain is a win win.
Next is Chuchuhuasi. It is a very large canopy tree, whose bark has been used as a general remedy for many centuries. Shamans, medicine men and women commonly employ chuchuhuasi for both curative and prophylactic purposes.
Chuchuhuasi is highly popular throughout the Peruvian Amazon especially. Sections of bark are commonly sold in herbal markets, and many fluid preparations of chuchuhuasi can be found. Chuchuhuasi liquors, from wines to distilled alcohols, show up in grocery stores and airport gift shops. To say that chuchuhuasi is everywhere in the Peruvian Amazon is not much of an exaggeration.
Traditionally chuchuhuasi is used to relieve pain and inflammation, to treat arthritis, rheumatism and back pain, to restore vigor after a debilitating disease, as a general tonic, and for relieving menstrual pain and enhancing libido. Chuchuhuasi is pretty close to an all-in-one remedy. It is consumed by itself or with other herbs, and can be prepared by simply soaking some bark in a glass of water overnight, or by putting bark and cane alcohol (aguardiente) into a vessel and letting the alcohol extract the beneficial compounds from the bark.
Chuchuhuasi contains a variety of naturally-occurring compounds, notably the two tumor-fighting alkaloids mayteine and maytansine. The bark is rich in several alkaloids, tannins, triterpenes and sesquiterpenes. The pyridine alkaloids in the bark may be primarily responsible for its anti-arthritic effects. The anti-tumor agents tingenone and pristimeran may account for use of the bark to treat certain cancers, notably those of the skin. The protein kinase C (PKC)-inhibiting agents in chuchuhuasi have been studied by Sphinx Phatmaceuticals of Durham, NC. PKC is implicated in many chronic degenerative disorders, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, and arthritis. An effective PKC-inhibitor could potentially save lives. Without question, chuchuhuasi bark contains a concentration of powerful protective agents.
The next ingredient is Ashwagandha. Ashwagandha is used for arthritis, anxiety, trouble sleeping (insomnia), tumors, tuberculosis, asthma, a skin condition marked by white patchiness (leukoderma), bronchitis, backache, fibromyalgia, menstrual problems, hiccups, and chronic liver disease.
Ashwagandha is also used as an “adaptogen” to help the body cope with daily stress, and as a general tonic. Some people also use ashwagandha for improving thinking ability, decreasing pain and swelling (inflammation), and preventing the effects of aging. It is also used for fertility problems in men and women and also to increase sexual desire. Ashwagandha is applied to the skin for treating wounds, backache, and one-sided paralysis (hemiplegia).
Lastly is Mucuna. “Mucuna pruriens is a leguminous vine that has naturalized itself throughout the entire world thanks to its near indestructible sea-faring beans. Besides being used as jewelry, these beans also act as a powerful physical & mental tonic which have gained respect as a medicinal food-herb in not only the Ayurvedic system of medicine but also in South American Shamanic rituals & other herbal based healing systems. Mucuna pruriens contains a wide variety of nutrients & neurotransmitters, strengthening the body & mind while tonifying the adrenal & endorphin systems. Mucuna contains a high concentration of the compound ‘L-Dopa’ which is a direct precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine.”
Combine them all together, and you get something magical. For me it is my daily go to multi-herbal blend that I cannot live without. If you’d like to try some, I’m selling some for $5 an ounce. OR you can go hunt down the ingredients and make it yourself! It’s like killing a bunch of birds with one stone. You’re helping your body in so many ways with this blend. I highly recommend it.
