Firefairy ELIXIR with Turmeric, Cacao & Coconut!
Brewed with spring water, spices (black pepper, cayenne pepper, star anise, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon), sugar cane and lots of love, as always <3
NB! It needs refrigeration and could last up to a week (after opening), but better to drink it quicker (or freeze some).
Also, very important! Because it has coconut milk, please don't boil it. Heat it until you see steam and little disturbances on the surface, then you are good to go. Enjoy :)
What makes it Elixir?
It's a combination of three powerful medicinal plants:
- Turmeric, who I have already had honor to work with beforehand.
- Anti-inflammatory compound helping with heart disease, cancer, metabolic syndrome, alzheimer's disease and various degenerative conditions.
- Potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals due to its chemical structure.
- May increase brain levels of BDNF, which makes it effective in delaying or even reversing many brain diseases and age-related decreases in brain function.
- Can help treat symptoms of arthritis and is, in some cases, more effective than anti-inflammatory drugs.
- Curcumin is as effective as an antidepressant.
- May have potential as an anti-aging supplement.

Packed with flavonoids - these nutrients that have been shown to help lower blood pressure, improve blood flow to the brain and heart, and aid in preventing blood clots.
The flavonoids in cacao powder may help increase insulin sensitivity, reducing your risk of diabetes.
Contains lots of potassium. Potassium has been shown to decrease risk of heart disease by reducing lower body inflammation and stress on cells.
The flavonoids in cacao powder can help to reduce inflammation throughout your body. Reduced inflammation may lessen your risk of some cancers, diabetes, arthritis, depression, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Cacao powder is also an excellent source of Iron, Protein, Magnesium, Potassium and Fiber.

Historically, people have used coconut as part of traditional medicine. The meat is said to, among other things - Counteract some poisons, Protect against disease, Ease inflammation and Kill bacteria.
Improve your endurance. Coconut meat contains large amounts of medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs), a type of saturated fat that is much easier for the human body to digest than animal fats. These fats, also called medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), have been demonstrated to boost the endurance of trained athletes.
Give you better oral health. The MCFAs found in coconut meat also contain antimicrobial properties. These can be useful in preventing infections related to root canals and other teeth issues. Although eating coconut meat is not a substitute for proper dental hygiene, it can help kill some of the unwanted bacteria found in your mouth and protect your gums and teeth from infection or cavities.
Help you lose weight. Regularly eating coconut meat might help with weight loss. The MCFAs widely found in coconut meat are associated with fat burning.
