Our Matcha-Moringa Functional Blend makes for a nutritiously energizing addition to any morning. This blend is so much more than just the caffeine in the Matcha; it has the brain nourishing herbs and functional mushrooms you'll want to get going in the morning and keep you fuelled even longer. Here's a little breakdown of how all the key ingredients play a role in supporting you and brain health:
- Matcha promotes a sense of calm, attentive wakefulness.
- Moringa offers an array of nutritional compounds, including proteins, fats, carbohydrates, fibre and antioxidants.
- Lion's Mane mushroom is antioxidant rich, and supports the immune system, along with providing cognitive and neurological support (aka brain health!).
- And Ashwagandha and Pine Pollen both provide energizing and stress-supporting properties.
