Who woulda thought you could support your adrenals and eat chocolate all at the same time? Well, it’s possible and these adaptogenic adrenal fat bombs are delicious and super simple to make!
First off, let’s go over some of the key ingredients in this recipe that make it magic (aka. adrenal supportive).
One of the ingredients used was He Shou Wu – a Traditional Taoist Herb and Jing Tonic. He Shou Wu has been used throughout the centuries as a longevity, anti-aging, blood-building, beauty, and rejuvenation food. Long revered as one of the most important and powerful herbs in Chinese Medicine, He Shou Wu (Polygonum multiflorum), has a rich and mystical history due to some of its more exotic—and highly sought after—benefits and effects. It is rich in iron and zinc—two hard-to-get essential minerals—and is wonderful for:
- Improving stamina
- Promoting red blood cells
- Enhancing immune function
- Increasing antioxidant activity
- Can tonify and nourish the blood, hair, skin, nervous system, sexual centre
- Can stimulate the body to produce many longevity-promoting substances, including superoxide dismutase
- Can stimulate and harmonize adrenal gland function and promote general endocrine system balance
Sounds amazing right??
Then I added in some Anandamide. I know, another strange sounding ingredient. This is an exquisite blend of unsweetened, raw heirloom cacao and tonic herbs. It’s hand-crafted in small batches using organic or wildcrafted ingredients and freshly-ground spices. This blend may activate and balance the nervous, digestive, and immune systems and is a perfect treat to brighten the mind and open the heart. It is loaded with adaptogenic herbs such as ashwagandha, astragalus, suma, moringa, and reishi mushrooms that may all work together to help boost your immune system, enhance and strengthen energy levels, and reduce stress and anxiety.
Basically, it’s awesome-sauce! And it tastes delicious. I really love using Sun Potion tonics as they are of high quality and great additions to smoothies and elixirs – or amazing just on their own.
Do keep in mind that if you do not have these products on hand, it’s all good. You can leave them out of the recipe. But, I highly suggest giving them a try since they are amazing for adrenal and hormonal health.
As you can see from the picture, there is ZERO sugar used in this recipe. If you’d like to sweeten it, I would suggest using Lakanto or maybe stevia. You can add in raw honey or maple syrup, but that will take the sugar content up quite a bit and defeat the purpose of a strictly high fat treat.
You’ll notice I also used the Perfect Keto Chocolate Collagen. This is a grass-fed keto collagen that provides complete collagen recovery. Collagen has a full amino acid profile and is the most important structural protein in your body. However it’s largely absent from the average person’s daily diet. Keto Collagen protein is 10 grams of collagen peptides from grass-fed cows.
This Keto Collagen is paired with MCTs and gut-healthy acacia fiber for great low-carb energy as well.
