Move over, mocha! This Chocolate Beauty Latte may be new in town but she’s sure to become a new favorite. Coffee and chocolate is just one of those classic combinations that we’ll never get tired of, especially when it’s made with Cacao Calm Plant-Based Collagen Boost. Our plant-based collagen boost blends are formulated with science-backed plant botanical ingredients shown to support hair, skin, and nail health. We like to think of them as skincare you can drink. In this case, your skincare routine is a delicious Chocolate Beauty Latte!
Our Cacao Calm blend contains organic cacao powder and organic ashwagandha root extract which have both been shown to have mood-boosting benefits. Cacao is a more nutrient dense form of chocolate and is a great source of healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and proteins. Cacao is also high in antioxidants (flavanols and polyphenols, to be exact!) that have been shown to help fight inflammation. The mood-boosting benefits of cacao come from the high levels of alkaloids it contains, which are naturally occurring compounds found in plants that send signals to the brain which can mimic the effects of serotonin and may help trigger positive emotions.* Those are pretty good reasons to add more chocolate to your diet, if you ask us!
In addition to cacao, our blends contain tremella mushroom, hyaluronic acid, amla berry, and bamboo extract to address collagen loss from all angles, from collagen production to natural collagen loss. You can read more about that here!
