Productivity, creativity and energy in a cup

Brainiac Chai, our brand new Coconut Chai Think Drink with lions mane and rhodiola will help you get more done and feel amazing while doing it.

Brain power, health and long-term self care for our best asset.

What if a delicious drink was fast and easy on the go AND fed your brain at the same time?  We spend so much of our time and energy on maintaining a desirable figure and complexion, enviable lifestyle and the perfect career, but have we thought much about giving some TLC to the one thing that makes this all possible? Your brain needs some love too! 

Key Brainiac Benefits:

  • Sustained concentration
  • Increase energy without caffeine
  • Stay balanced under stress
  • Improve mood and get into creative flow
  • Improve memory 
  • Support long-term brain health

Our modern lives are hard on our brains. Constant multitasking is killing our productivity, the go-go-go has us waking up fatigued, our daily stressors make our day-to-day a grind and make it hard to remember, well, pretty much everything! 

Halfway through a long day at the office, sipping a coconut chai is going to be much more appealing than popping a supplement or guzzling a red bull. Plus, the new single serve format makes this all possible on-the-go. Whether you’re busy building your career, trying to make that study period super productive or stepping into an anxiety-inducing meeting, we want to make the healthy choice easy. 

Taking on life’s challenges doesn’t mean leaving valuable nourishment for your brain on the table. 

How does it work?

The combination of mushrooms and herbs in Brainiac Chai work synergistically to help you get fully present and in the moment, quickly and effectively.

1 sachet Brainiac Chai
10 oz of hot water
1-2 tsp MCT oil
1 tbsp coconut butter
sweetener, as desired

 

Add the hot water to your blender. For safety, do not use boiling water in your blender. Add mct oil and coconut butter then all your powders. Blend on high for 30 seconds. 

Prefer a latte instead? Swap out the hot water and coconut butter for 12 oz of your favourite milk. We like oat, almond, cashew or hemp. 

By using matcha in this recipe, you get the calming and focus benefits of the l-theanine found in matcha.
