You’ve probably heard of probiotics, the live organisms you take to replenish your gut flora. But have you ever heard of prebiotics?

Just like probiotics, prebiotics are an important part of your gut health. The lining of your gut is covered in microscopic organisms and bacteria that create a micro-ecosystem called a microbiome. These bacteria help you digest food and take in nutrients.

Prebiotics are a type of specialized plant fiber that feed the microbes in your gut and stimulate the growth of healthy bacteria. In short, think of prebiotics as the fertilizer to help good bacteria grow.

Adaptogens are ingredients in certain plants and that may impact how your body deals with stress, anxiety and fatigue. When consumed, these plants target specific stressors in your body.

Here are the adaptogens in icewave:

  • Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)
    Ashwagandha offers protection for your cells as an antioxidant and reduces inflammation.
  • Coffee Cherry CognatiQ™ (Coffea arabica)
    Coffee Cherry CognatiQ™ is a natural patented extract that contains a unique profile of polyphenols that has been shown in clinical studies to stimulate the production of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), a key neuroprotein involved in overall brain health. BDNF plays a vital role in the development, maintenance, connections and protection of brain neurons. CognatiQ™ is shown to significantly increase BDNF levels in two double-blind, peer-reviewed studies.

We swear by this stuff!

CognatiQ™ is the trademark of VDF Futureceuticals
