Cacao Raw cacao is a delicious way to add antioxidants, plant iron, magnesium and even some calcium to your diet. It can help to improve your mood by interacting with different neurotransmitters in your body that make you feel good. 
Cacao also contains magnesium, a mineral that helps you calm down and relax, which supports a restful sleep. 

Nexba Mixed Berry Kombucha Our kombuchas are deliciously fizzy and loaded with probiotics which help to keep our gut health in check. Nexba Kombucha contains a unique strain of live probiotics which are specifically crafted to survive the journey from mouth to gut.
Ground AlmondsA nutrient-dense flour alternative that's rich in healthy fats, plant protein and vitamin E. 
Almonds are a source of melatonin (a hormone that helps regulate the sleeping and waking cycle) as well as minerals magnesium and calcium that promote muscle relaxation and sleep.
