Q: What is in them, what makes them work?
A: Golden Goddess Chai and Chocolate Elixirs are proprietary blends of nature's most powerful ingredients in delicious drink mixes. They both contain organic bioactive spices, adaptogenic herbs including:
KSM-66® Ashwagandha: Called "The Wonder Herb of India", ashwagandha is one of the most important herbal restoratives for increasing overall vitality. KSM-66 is the highest-potency full-spectrum ashwaganda extract on the world market today. KSM66 is backed by 8 clinical studies, shown to: shown to1) Reduce stress, anxiety and cortisol levels; 2) Enhance memory and cognition; 3) Increase endurance and muscle strength; 4) Improve sexual function health in both men and women 5) Enhance immune function.
Clinical research shows that KSM-66 binds to GABA receptors in the nervous system, thereby producing calming, anti-anxiety, highly stabilizing effects. KSM-66 also influences the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and adrenaline and cortisol levels, which in turn influences stress response. It also reduces stress-induced increases in dopamine receptors in the brain. Withanolide A, a compound from ashwagandha root, has been shown to regenerate neurites and reconstruct synapses in damaged neurons.
Eleuthero, 50:1 extract: Also known as Siberian ginseng and referred to as "The King of Adaptogens," eleuthero is a first-class tonic herb that enhances energy, physical and mental performance. Eleuthero is clinically studied as an immune, adrenal and anti-fatigue tonic. It increases innate resistance to stress and has neurological stress-protective effects.
Organic Turmeric: With well over 60 healing actions, turmeric is the most-studied spice for numerous health benefits. From relieving pain and headaches, to increasing circulation and cleansing blood, to relieving colds and flu, healers in India and China have been using turmeric for over 5,000 years to treat a wide range of ills and as an overall tonic. Many modern clinicians recommend that everyone should consume turmeric on a daily basis, both as a food and a supplement.
Organic Ceylon Cinnamon: Sweet, fragrant and pungent, cinnamon is one of the world's favorite and most beneficial spices. Not only does it taste and smell great, it is a potent antioxidant; supports balanced blood sugar levels, insulin sensitivity and healthy cholesterol and blood lipids.
Vegan Coconut Milk: Creating a natural richness and creamy texture that people love, our coconut milk powder is 100% vegan and rich with healthy coconut oil. Coconut oil is very different from other fats as it contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) identical to those in human breast milk and has similar germ fighting and heart-protective properties. Unlike other fats, MCTs do not need to be broken down by the liver and can be used immediately by the body as energy. Coconut fat actually stimulates metabolism and aids in the absorption of other nutrients.
Our Chai Elixir also contains:
Curcumin: The most famous and powerful extract of turmeric, curcumin works on fundamental biological pathways to increase cellular health, reduce inflammation, assist your body in detoxification and scavenge free radicals.
Organic Ginger: Revered for over 5,000 years as "the universal medicine" in Chinese and Indian traditions, ginger's multiple and varied benefits are substantiated by modern research. It is a potent anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory, increases metabolic rate and suppresses the absorption of fat in the intestines. Warming, stimulating and aromatic, it is used traditionally to aid reduction of nausea and upset stomach. It works synergistically with other ingredients to help the body to absorb vital nutrients.
Organic Cardamom: Called the "Queen of Spices" for its sweet, woodsy perfume and complex flavor, cardamom contains several important antioxidants, notably the anti-inflammatory and cardioprotective salicylates. It also contains cineole, a potent antiseptic that kills bad breath bacteria and has expectorant activity for clearing breathing passages.
Organic Clove: Sweet, pungent and astringent, clove is a strong anti-oxidant; supports healthy heart and circulation; supports the function of insulin and healthy levels of glucose, total cholesterol, LDL and triglycerides.
Our Chocolate Elixir also contains:
Arriba Organic Cacao Powder: Made from beans harvested from the native-born heirloom Ecuadorian species Arriba Nacional-Fino de Aroma. Considered to have the finest aroma and flavor, this Arriba cacao powder is sun dried, hand peeled, and stone ground by artisans to preserve its natural mineral density, antioxidants and phytonutrients.
Nothing else quite compares to the texture, taste and complexity of this flavorful chocolate delight. Unlike most cacao powders, ours is full-fat, meaning it has not been stripped of its flavorful and health-promoting cacao butter and contains is 20-25% fat. Cacao butter is rich with beneficial fatty acids for your heart, brain, joints, skin and immune system.
Cacao is shown to increase the levels of endorphins released into the brain, which work to lessen pain and decrease stress, and affect serotonin to act as a mild all-natural anti-depressant. It also contains theobromine, shown to to increase mood and decrease depression; and phenylethylamine (PEA), a neurotransmitter found to inspire happiness, clear mindedness, focus, and wakefulness. Cacao also contains substances that are chemically and pharmacologically related to the brain lipids, anandamide. The word ‘anandamide’ is derived from ananda, Sanskrit for 'bliss'. It acts as a messenger molecule to activate feelings of well-being.

Q: How much, how often and when should I drink it?
A: Spice Elixirs are like drinkable supplements. While you do get immediate harmonizing benefits from one cup, daily enjoyment is best for cumulative results. Drink at least one cup daily as a tonic dosage, and two to four cups for therapeutic effects in times of high stress or need.
People enjoy them as a morning beverage, and afternoon pick-me-up, as dessert, or a liquid snack anytime!
While hot chocolate has been often drunk as an evening treat, some people are sensitive to the small amount of caffeine present in the chocolate. If you are sensitive to caffeine, we recommend you do not drink the Chocolate Elixir at night.
While Golden Goddess is energizing, it contains no caffeine or stimulants. While super-sensitive individuals may find it too energizing for the evening, many people love to drink it any time of day or night. We advise that you try it for yourself and listen to your body!
Q: Are they safe for diabetics?
A: Each 8 fluid ounce serving is sweetened with one teaspoon (4 grams) of organic coconut sugar, an unrefined sweetener with a low glycemic index of 35 (lower than carrots!), plus a small amount of stevia. Research shows that the spices and botanicals in Golden Goddess Chai and Chocolate Elixirs -- particularly cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, curcumin, cloves and cacao -- can support healthy insulin sensitivity and blood sugar levels. Consult with your health practitioner if you have further questions regarding the impact on your metabolism of the 4 grams of carbohydrate found in a single serving of our Elixirs.
