Is it winter yet where you are? It sure is snuggly sweater weather at Cosmix HQ. And you know what goes perfectly well with this weather?
So instead of looking for the perfect hot chocolate, we decided to team up with our very special friend and gut-health expert, Ankita Srivastava, to MAKE ONE!
Introducing: the Ankita x Cosmix Limited Edition Gut-Loving Hot Chocolate!
Why did we make this blend?
All of us love hot chocolate too much. And this is the perfect season to snuggle up with a decadent cup. However, this is also the time when our immunity takes a hit. And we’ve all learnt by now that 90% of our immune system is in our gut. So, strengthening immunity begins with gut health.
With this in mind, we decided to combine our love for hot chocolate and knowledge of gut health, to give you this one of a kind blend that ticks off on all boxes – right from taste to gut health to immunity to sleep.
What’s in it?
We’ve carefully sourced and blended together some of our favourite superfoods and adaptogens to give you a hot chocolate unlike any other. Let us give you a glimpse into each ingredient in the Ankita x Cosmix Gut-Loving Hot Chocolate, and what they do!
Single Origin Cacao & Cocoa from Indonesia:
It promotes healthy digestion and a healthy heart. Cacao is a powerhouse of antioxidant flavonoid, known to improve blood flow to the brain and heart. It’s also high in potassium which lowers stress and inflammation in the body. But wait, there’s more. It contains more calcium than cow’s milk, and 40x the antioxidants as blueberries. Most importantly, cacao & cocoa help increase serotonin levels – a hormone known to improve mood and put you in a happy state!
Reishi mushroom is one of the most ancient and potent adaptogens. It contains over 400 bio-compounds that help fortify the immune system. It’s got anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties, as well as helps alleviate allergy responses. Reishi is known to help enhance memory, improve focus, boost concentration, and also fight fatigue by boosting energy levels and regulating sleep.
Ginger is a go-to ingredient for improving digestion, which in turn promotes overall energy levels. It helps regulate blood pressure, reduce inflammation, control blood sugar levels and keep flu and common cold at bay.
Cardamom, much like ginger, also helps with digestion – particularly, acidity. It helps the body in detoxification and promotes oral hygiene – the starting point of good internal health. It works with ginger to prevent cough, cold, flu and fight off unhealthy bacteria in the body.
Himalayan Pink Salt:
Aside from lending that special touch to our hot chocolate’s flavour profile, Himalayan pink salt also comes with a host of benefits. It contains more than 80 minerals and micronutrients such as potassium, iron and calcium, which play a key role in smooth functioning of our body. This salt is also naturally rich in iodine which helps balance the body’s electrolytes. It also supports the intestines to absorb nutrients better and promote overall wellness.
It’s high in electrolytes such as potassium, magnesium and sodium, which all play an important role in regulating the body’s water content, along with promoting healthy heart, muscle and nerve functions. In addition, it contains iron, zinc and calcium which help strengthen the bones. Coconut sugar also contains Vitamin C – an essential ingredient for healthy immunity. Most importantly, coconut sugar contains inulin – a dietary fibre that keeps the gut healthy and helps balance blood sugar.
