What’s better than delicious hot chocolate mix? Our Spiced Keto Hot Chocolate Mix! With only 1 grams of net carbs per cup, you can stay in the Keto Zone and drink your spiced hot chocolate.
When you stay in the Keto Zone, you can expect:
The base of this Superfood Spiced Keto Hot Chocolate mix is the cocoa of course! Or, to be more precise, we recommend using raw, organic (less-processed) cacao.
Simply because cacao is one of the best “superfoods” available.
In fact, it contains more than 300 different antioxidant chemical compounds. Its antioxidant power is measured at 20 times that of blueberries.
And what’s more, it’s antioxidants are stable for years (2)!
Along with antioxidant power, the compounds in raw cacao can reduce stress, reduce blood pressure, improve brain health, and more.
Like most spices, cinnamon is known for its antioxidants.
But did you know, that spices including cinnamon contain more antioxidants than most foods, ounce to ounce (3)? These antioxidants work to fight free radicals and oxidative stress in the body.
And this time of year especially, a nice warm mug of cinnamon-spiced keto hot cocoa mix hits the spot!
Like the other ingredients in our Keto Zone hot cocoa mix, black peppercorns contain antioxidants. But, black peppercorns are special in that they are known for fighting pain and cancer cells.
In fact, lab studies show that two phytochemicals in peppercorn are potent anti-cancer compounds on three types of cancer cells (4). What’s more, piperine, the main nutritive component in black pepper, suppresses cancer stem cell renewal and stops cancer cells from growing and spreading (5).
In addition, black pepper’s compounds promote heart health and improved cholesterol readings (6).
You simply can’t go wrong consuming hydrolyzed collagen each day. And fortunately, it can really help your skin in the winter.
First, it increases moisture retention in the skin, which is an issue for many people who live in dry climates or use indoor heating.
Next, it improves the structure of the skin, making it stronger.
Third, along with black pepper, it can reduce joint pain and arthritis, which also seems to be worse during cold winter months.
When you get to drink a delicious warm cup of hot chocolate in the winter, it feels good. But, when it’s Superfood Spiced Keto Hot Chocolate Mix, it feels even better! With ingredients that fight pain and improve health, there’s no better choice for yourself or a gift for a loved one this year.
