We take our ingredients very seriously. Our expectations are higher than most and we believe in using the best tasting, highest quality and most functional ingredients in all of our products.
We also believe in transparency. We want you to know what your food has in it. Consider this informative and educational at the same time. We care about the environment and the impact of ingredients on your health and performance.
red and black cocoa
We use the best supplier of cocoa on the market. They are well-known for their high quality practices and their cocoa is Fair Trade Certified, non-GMO, gluten and peanut free. Our Smart Cocoa is a blend of red and black cocoa. Red cocoa is higher in fat with a rich, fudgy and robust chocolate flavor. Black cocoa, used more to flavor our blend, is alkalized for less bitterness with a smooth flavor.
organic coconut milk powder
Most coconut powders contain detrimental chemicals and additives to prevent clumping. Our certified organic, non-GMO, pure and clean label coconut powder is free from corn maltodextrin. Coconut powder is a great source of fiber, iron, and medium chain triglycerides and is very low in sugar.
It is a luscious tasting powder on its own and when mixed in our products, it adds a rich, creamy flavor.
This ingredient is the building block for ATP - the primary energy source for all living cells. Instead of spiking blood sugar and decreasing your body's ability to burn fat, D-ribose promotes muscular energy production and can help speed recovery and reduce fatigue after workouts. We use Bioenergy Ribose® as it is the only patented and purest form of D-ribose on the market. It is also FDA GRAS (generally recognized as safe) affirmed, non-GMO, Kosher, Halal and allergen free.
caprylic acid powder
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCT's) are powerful fats that have great benefits for the mind and body. MCT's are not stored in your fat cells but instead are converted to ketones. Ketones are substances created when the body breaks down fat for energy and are ideal forms of energy for the mitochondria (where energy production happens). Ketones produce fewer free radicals than do sugars.
There are four different triglycerides in the MCT family with differing numbers of carbon (C) molecules: C6, C8, C10, and C12. Caprylic Acid (C8) is superior in raising ketones, providing energy to the brain and muscles and teaching the body to burn fat more efficiently.
Common MCT powders will also use maltodextrin or milk based substances as binders. Not our caprylic acid powder! Ours uses 4.5 grams of pre-biotic acacia fiber per serving to help improve gut health. The gut microbiome is very important in promoting optimal health and supporting athletic performance and the acacia fiber found in our caprylic acid powder will support a healthy gut.
Cinnamon is a powerhouse spice with a high amount of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. It also has many health benefits such as promoting better digestion and immunity and it has the ability to help control and lower blood sugar levels.
We use THE best stevia on the market. It has a high quality, robust sweet flavor without bitterness or licorice aftertastes that other stevia extracts have.
