Mystical Mushroom Cacao
Activate your highest potential and find optimal health as this deeply medicinal blend of mushrooms gives a boost to your body and spirit.
Our mushrooms are 1:1 water extracted from the fruiting body only for highest medicinal content, and triple lab tested for purity and safety. That means no grains or fillers involved and completely gluten free. The mushroom themselves are grown on buried wooden logs in hoop houses to mimic a natural environment, not in laboratories. We're sure you'll love it the taste is more like an earthy cacao than of mushrooms!
Why It's Fantastic
Ora created enhanced cacaos as a convenient daily way to help you get important superfoods in your diet. Cacao is a vasodilator and cardiac stimulant, so when you ingest cacao with superfoods, they are absorbed deeper into your tissues because of the increased circulation. So you get both the benefits of cacao, an amazing superfood on it's own, and all of these additional ingredients.
Many ceremonial cacao lovers report a notable impact on their mood. There is substantial science that explains why ceremonial cacao is so beneficial. Pure cacao contains beneficial neurotransmitters and neuro-modulators already present in our brain. It also contains reuptake inhibitors that block the pathways that our bodies normally use to break down and recycle these beneficial mood altering molecules, so the good mood lasts for longer. In the long term, regularly working with ceremonial cacao can have therapeutic health benefits, including creating new neural pathways that change our daily experience to include more joy, love, and connection.*

We only use fruiting body mushrooms, a rarity in the US. When people commonly say the word “mushroom”, they are referring to the fruiting body of the basidiomycete organism. This organism also has two other parts, the mycelium and the spore. Frequently however the word “mushroom” is used to refer to the entire organism.
