Pre-Workout Tips and Tools: Prepare to Sweat in Style!
We like to work out first thing in the morning, as soon as we wake up. There is only one thing we do beforehand… tongue scraping. A tongue cleaner, also known as a tongue scraper, is an ancient detox tool, used in Ayurveda for thousands of years. Bacteria on your tongue multiply while you sleep, feeding on food particles and dead cells. That’s why you wake up with your breath smelling so...unsexy. Use a Tongue Cleaner to scrape bacteria off your tongue, first thing in the morning, it is up to x5 more effective than using a toothbrush. Adopting this quick, small wellness ritual inspired other good habits and was ultimately the catalyst that helped us quit sugar, fall sick far less often and finally give priority to our health.

There’s only one tool to apply on dry skin, before your shower: this traditionally made, oval copper brush is 100% natural and takes your dry brushing ritual to the next level. The ultra-fine, medium-strength copper bristles generate new energy in the form of negatively charged ions, which rebalance your energy balance, ward off free radicals and give you a particularly intense kick of freshness. Positive charged electrical particles, also called positive ions, block the energy supply to the body from the outside. An energy balance can be restored by negatively charged particles, also called anions. The fine bronze wires of the Ionic Dry Brush generate exactly these negatively charged particles when they rub against your skin, creating a harmonious energy level - you feel balanced, energetic and refreshed.

These beloved mushrooms are all grown in a small farm 100% organically and sustainably in Washington State. The mushrooms powders are all cell wall extracted for optimized bioavailability, and contain both fruiting bodies and mycelium. Although Anima Mundi loves and respects ethically wildcrafted mushrooms and herbs, they purposefully source our mushrooms from a small organic farm to impede the depletion of the wild. Particularly Chaga being in danger of extinction, we exclusively support organic farming of this precious mushroom to avoid extinction. If you can forage your own small supply (that’s awesome!) but be mindful and always leave some behind.
Although almost the entirety of this very special tree is used medicinally, Anima Mundi supplies fresh ground leaves as that's what most traditionally used. Yet the seeds, bark, fruit, roots and leaves have all been used for centuries in the rainforest within medicinal preparations. Indigenous people in South-Central America, Africa, and Asia have regarded this as a miracle remedy to stop viral infection, for pain relief and for impeding the proliferation of several types of cancer. Traditionally it has also been used to curve anxiety, as a mild sedative, to lower heart rate and reduce blood pressure. In more modern medical research, Soursop (Annona muricata) was discovered to contain a bioactive compound “annonaceous acetogenins” very well known for anticancer activity on cancer cell lines. It has also been successfully used and approved in the medical community as a anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, to lower blood pressure, prevent ulcers, etc.
Soma Elixir is composed of seven double extracted adaptogenic mushrooms extracted with Schizandra berries and Rose Petals.
