Premium Ingredients with Your Health in Focus

This chocolate is part of our functional chocolates range aimed at blending pleasure with health in a unique offering not found elsewhere in the market. With this pioneering date-sweetened functional dark chocolate, we provide a naturally sweet and healthful alternative that stands out for its proven benefits. This product delivers on our mission to encourage healthier eating habits, ensuring that indulgence doesn't mean straying from a healthy lifestyle. Each bar is crafted with meticulous attention to the ingredients- using only the purest, clinically tested ingredients sourced from the most reliable suppliers.


We use ground dried organic dates to sweeten our dark chocolate because of their lower glycemic index compared to conventional sugar. This is typically between 42 and 55. The lower GI of ground dried dates is due to their natural fiber content, which ensures a more gradual sugar release compared to the more immediate impact of refined cane sugar, leading to a slower rise in blood glucose levels.
This makes them a healthier option for managing blood sugar levels, particularly for those looking to maintain steady energy levels, and avoid sugar spikes.


We use 100% pure, certified organic water-extracted powder from organic fruiting bodies, with active compounds greater than 30% Beta-glucans sourced from Real Mushrooms. Skye Chilton, the founder sells the products from Nammex- the company founded by his father Jeff Chilton. Nammex is the leading supplier of organic mushroom extracts for the past 40 years. Their product is scientifically verified for active compounds and has no grain fillers as are found in a lot of commercial mushroom products.

Lion's Mane mushroom, known as "Hou Tou Gu" in Chinese, has a long history of use in Traditional Chinese Medicine. In TCM, it is primarily used for its reputed benefits to the digestive system and overall vitality.
In recent times, both medical traditions and modern research have been exploring Lion’s Mane for its potential neuroprotective properties, particularly its possible benefits in supporting cognitive function and nerve health. Current research suggests that it may help mitigate age related cognitive decline. This includes research into its ability to stimulate the production of nerve growth factors, which could have implications for diseases involving nerve degeneration
Preliminary studies suggest that Lion's Mane may have a beneficial impact on mild forms of depression and anxiety, but more robust clinical trials are needed to fully understand its effects.
Lion’s Mane benefits are attributed to a range of bioactive compounds, including high-molecular-weight substances like polysaccharides (e.g., beta-glucans) and low-molecular-weight compounds such as terpenoids. For Cognitive and Nerve Health: Doses of 300-1000 mg per day of standardized extract are commonly used. Clinical studies often use around 1000 mg per day divided into three to four daily doses. Nevertheless, the optimal dose remains uncertain, and the minimum effective concentration may vary depending on the specific target system.


We use RealCordyceps® (produced by Nammex), a 100% pure fruiting body with Beta (1-3),(1-6)-glucans greater than 25% and active cordycepin.

A large body of research has demonstrated that Cordyceps militaris has similar active compounds and activities to Ophiocordyceps sinensis. Today, C. militaris is being cultivated on substrates that are
free from any insects. Cordyceps is known for its beta-glucans and also
for the compound cordycepin. Both compounds are higher in the cultivated
C. militaris than the traditionally wildcrafted O. sinensis and its
mycelial analogues.(source: Nammex)

Cordyceps militaris is a type of medicinal fungus that has garnered attention for its health-promoting properties, similar to its more renowned cousin, Cordyceps sinensis. Both species are used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and have been revered for centuries for their ability to enhance vitality and endurance. However, Cordyceps militaris is often more readily available and sustainable, as it can be cultivated commercially, unlike the wild-harvested Cordyceps sinensis which is rare and expensive.

Comparison to Cordyceps sinensis:
While both species contain beneficial bioactive compounds such as cordycepin, adenosine, and polysaccharides, Cordyceps militaris is particularly noted for having higher levels of cordycepin. Studies suggest that cordycepin has potent anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-aging properties. Cordyceps militaris also tends to be more consistent in quality due to controlled cultivation methods.

Benefits as per studies and TCM:

  1. Energy and Stamina: Both types of Cordyceps are famed in TCM for boosting energy and physical stamina. Modern research supports these uses, showing that they can increase ATP production, which is essential for energy.
  2. Immune Support: Cordyceps militaris has been studied for its effects on the immune system.


Tremella fuciformis, commonly known as snow fungus or silver ear fungus, is frequently used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and in Asian cuisines for its beauty and health benefits.

The scientific basis for the benefits of Tremella fuciformis (snow fungus) centers on its bioactive components, primarily its rich polysaccharides, which have been the subject of various studies.

  1. Skin Hydration and Elasticity:Scientific studies have focused on the moisturizing effects of Tremella polysaccharides, noting their ability to hold water and their smaller molecular size compared to hyaluronic acid, allowing better skin penetration. Research published in the "International Journal of Cosmetic Science" highlighted that Tremella extracts could significantly improve skin hydration and reduce wrinkles when used topically.
  2. Immune System Support:The immune-modulating effects of Tremella are supported by studies that show its polysaccharides can stimulate macrophage activity, a type of white blood cell that plays a key role in immune defense. Research in the "Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry" has documented these effects, showing how Tremella enhances the body's immune responses.
  3. Antioxidant Properties: Tremella’s antioxidant capabilities have been studied extensively. Its polysaccharides and other compounds like flavonoids and phenolics have been shown to scavenge free radicals effectively. These studies, including those published in "Food Chemistry," demonstrate Tremella's potential to combat oxidative stress.
  4. Neuroprotective Effects:Although research is still emerging, some studies have explored Tremella's potential neuroprotective effects. These studies suggest that its compounds may help protect against cognitive decline by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation in the brain, though more specific and detailed studies are needed to fully establish this benefit.
  5. Anti-inflammatory Effects: Tremella has shown potential anti-inflammatory effects in scientific studies, which may help reduce the risk of chronic inflammation-related
    diseases. This is particularly evident in research focusing on its impact on cytokine regulation, which plays a crucial role in inflammatory responses.

These scientific findings provide a modern understanding of how Tremella's traditional uses in Chinese medicine might be effective, offering a bridge between ancient wisdom and contemporary scientific validation.

NOTE : This is not a substitute for professional medical treatment

Overall, while each of these ingredients shows promise in supporting mental health and potentially alleviating anxiety, they are not a substitute for professional medical treatment. Anyone considering these
supplements for anxiety should consult with a healthcare provider, especially since mental health conditions require professional diagnosis
and management.
