A piece of raw chocolate a day...

Living a healthy life is a lot easier when you listen carefully to yourself. So be sure to treat yourself to a little fun, a nice piece of chocolate can and should be, especially if it only contains pure ingredients.

Natural food supplements

At there are several ways to get extra healthy substances. A deficiency can quickly become apparent from one or the other, especially at a time when the food industry is mainly concerned with quantity and not so much with quality.

Maca for vitality

Maca Alive - Fermented Maca is an example of such a smart dietary supplement. Perhaps a little more information is needed: thanks to the freeze-drying method, all important substances are preserved without any problem and can easily be stored in capsule form. As a result, each capsule contains probiotic bacteria that can make your intestinal flora work optimally.


Maca, also known as Peruvian ginseng, is a tuberous plant that grows in the Andes Mountains in Peru. It is exposed to extremely cold air, at high altitudes, and a lot of sunlight. This makes it a very strong plant with all kinds of positive characteristics. Maca contains almost all the essential amino acids, various vitamins and has strong adaptogenic properties. This means that the effect adapts to the needs of the user, creating a better balance. Maca is also seen as an aphrodisiac, a means to increase libido and get more energy. A booster for different bodily functions, so you can feel energetic and vital again!

Adaptogens for more balance

Golden Balance is a blend of Ashwagandha, one of the most important herbs of Ayurveda, which is used for all kinds of applications. Ashwagandha is, just like maca, an adaptogen. Adaptogens help your body and mind to regain their balance. Mainly the hormonal balance is rebalanced. Adaptogens also help reduce stress levels (cortisol), which can improve the state of mind. This brings you back to homeostasis, the state in which the bodily functions can do their work optimally.

Golden balance

Ashwagandha is rich in iron and helps the body to resist stress. It also stimulates alertness and rest at the same time, so that feelings of anxiety and stress can decrease. It also helps to reduce adrenal fatigue and to regulate pancreatic hormones. This mix is supplemented with liquorice, ginger and turmeric, also adaptogens with a long history of medicinal use. The added cayenne pepper improves blood circulation and stimulates metabolism.

A shortage of sun?

Vitamin D is produced by the body using sunlight. Since many people are mainly indoors during the day for their jobs, a shortage of this important vitamin soon becomes the case. Especially in winter there is a very good chance that you will need extra supplementation in these colder regions.  Vitamin D plays an important role in maintaining strong teeth and bones. It helps the body to better absorb the minerals calcium and phosphorus. It also promotes good resistance and preserves supple and strong muscles. For older people it is also very important to use vitamin D to form sufficient calcium in the bones. Jacob Hooy has supplemented their 5% CBD oil with the sun vitamin, and more specifically vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol).
