INGREDIENTS GLOSSARY

We'll apologise for being OTT and OCD about many a'things, but when it come to what goes into our blends (aka into your body) we most certainly will not. We hold ourselves to the highest standards and include nothing but the good stuff, yep - you read that right, organic where possible and not a filler, artificial colour or flavour, sugar or bottom-basement option in sight. If you love geeking out on ingredients and all things wellness as much as we do, get ready to be tickled pink and get stuck into our glossary of ingredients below. You can find us here most Sunday's, quizzing ourselves on what's what!

Acerola's coolness doesn't just stop at its name, it's a cool tropical fruit that has proved to be one of the richest natural sources of vitamin C on Earth (go Acerola!!) and because of this potency, boasts a range of wellbeing properties for your insides (hello heart health!) and outsides (glowing skin come at us!). This little berry proves that good things really do come in small packages!

It's ironic that B vitamins help with focus and brain power because our active B vitamin complex is quite a clever little cookie! It contains a complete complex of the 8 major B vitamins, produced from quinoa sprouts! These natural B vitamins contain coenzymes which are biologically active and therefore superior to synthetic vitamins. The vitamins are fat soluble, due to the presence of the coenzymes and therefore stay in the body longer. B vitamins are super dooper vital to healthy bodies; important for normal mental and physical energy and healthy blood formation. They can also help to reduce fatigue and tiredness which we ALL need in this fast paced world!

You heard it here first.. chocolate is good for you! Well, when it’s in its pure state as cacao it most definitely is! Chocoholics unite!!

Aside from being delicious and giving our Lovewell powders the creamiest, yummiest, chocolatey flavour that contributes to their moreish nature, cacao is also a bit of a nutrient powerhouse. NBD. (But actually like the biggest big deal!)

Whilst it’s most famously known for its role in the production of chocolate, cacao holds its own solo showing off with a number of health benefits; it’s a great source of zinc and iron (absolute human body essentials), it has high levels of antioxidants (we need these to fight free radicals in the body!), it's rich in polyphenols which are responsible for reducing inflammation (anything that reduces inflammation is a god/goddess in our book!), and it’s super high in magnesium (something that all women need) 

Due to its amazing benefits for bone, muscle and heart health, PMS, moods and anxiety - it's a natural way of calming your body. Plus, it’s high in flavonoids - the healthy nutrients made by plants that are basically top shelf natural antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, to put it simply; the more flavonoids you can incorporate into your diet, the better. And not to get super technical, but it is high in the amino acid, tryptophan which is a precursor to serotonin - the neurotransmitter of happiness! 

All of these benefits and your Blossom or Grow smoothie is going to have that delicious chocolatey taste. It’s a win, win! So, there you have it… we give you permission to have dessert for breakfast*


*when it's in the form of our Blossom or Grow smoothie - obvi, we can't give permission to demolish a block of chocolate for breaky.

"You're not leaving the table until you've finished your greens", we've all heard that broken record on repeat and it's an ode to parents everywhere... the daily struggle #amirite. But the reason parents across the ages have been so adamant on being the green police is because everyone knows they're a must for tip-top-health so it was a no brainer to include organic, fermented super greens in our blends. And don't even get us started because we'll geek out on you for the next 4 hours but the fermentation just adds a whole other level of goodness that makes our supergreens blend the best in the biz.

We got our thinking caps on and knew we had to pick the best of the best (and it's not easy when they're all superheroes!) so we landed on wheatgrass, spirulina and chlorella for our organic supergreens because collectively they contain a broad range of amino acids, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, Omega-3s and antioxidants. 

Oh, and the (other other) great thing about these superfood greens and the microalgae included, is that they can bump up your nutritional profile (who doesn't want more nutrition?), increase energy levels (hallelujah!) alkalise the body (alkaline is the antidote to inflammation) and act as potent cleansers (you had us at potent!). Spirulina has also been shown to assist in the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut (we love healthy bacteria!), therefore improving digestion and the absorption of nutrients (soak up that goodness!!). 

So, after our little spill on supergreens all you need to take away is that this blend is perfect for peace of mind; a powerful but palatable mix to ensure that every member of the family is getting a daily dose of greens, which just so happens to be hidden in an enticing chocolate flavour - our (and your!) secret weapon.

Kelp is part of the sea vegetable and algae family, which as we know is full to the brim with nutrients. But!

Clever lil Kelp is also rich in vitamins, minerals and trace elements AND the list goes on, it's a wonderful source of iodine, which is essential for optimal thyroid function and metabolism.

Join the queue to be in the Kelp fan club (we don't want to brag but we're the President of it) because after learning all of its superpowers, everyone wants to be Kelp's friend.

Lavender, lavender, lavender. You gorgeous thing with your dreamy lilac hues! Apart from being delightful on the eye and quite a favourable and often nostalgic scent for many, lavender hosts a heap of health benefits. Traditionally used to soothe, calm and promote sleepiness. It's also a skin rejuvenator (which is why you'll recognise from such delights as cult skin care products), friend of that time of the month, aids digestion and helper of respiratory issues. So as you can see, it's well and truly earned its place on the Dream mantle.

Ahhhhh lemon balm, doesn't it just sound calming? That's because it has the downlow when it comes to all things CALM! Ok ok we're listening!!

Believe it or not, it's actually a member of the mint family (but we're not talking about mojitos today!) and a herb that goes way way way way (read: wayyyyyyyy) back in time to reduce anxiety, stress and promote good sleep. What a trifecta! It was a no brainer that this had to be front and centre in Dream and we think (well, we know) you'll be so glad it is.

Hormones are often fobbed off (what an injustice!), but truly play such a vital role in our bodies; and not just in a sexual capacity but also when it comes to growth, sleep, mood, stress, even metabolism. In fact, it’s those helpful little hormones that carry messages from our cells to our brain and organs. 

Maca is the fairy godmother of hormone health. When formulating Blossom, we had all the mamas in mind; particularly all the hormone changes our bodies go through pre, during and post pregnancy. We wanted to include a powerhouse to support hormone health overall, and in particular help in balancing hormones, encourage fertility hormones, suppress cortisol (the ‘stress’ hormone), boost energy, offer relief from PMS symptoms and support adrenals. 

Enter: Maca. This superstar powder does all of the above and so much more, you simply cannot look past it when it comes to hormone health and we’ve incorporated a strong dose into our formula. Maca is an amazing superfood, also supporting endurance, oxygenating blood, physical strength, neurotransmitter production, and helps you enjoy a healthy libido! Plus, it’s not just for the mamas, it is an amazing support for men's hormones too.

We ummed and ahhed about the inclusion of caffeine in Blossom but as busy mamas we knew we wanted (read: needed, what's sleep these days?) something in our supplement to boost our energy levels and help get the kick we all so desperately desire but don't always want from coffee! So, we decided on a healthy alternative - a cleaner caffeine.

After collaborating with our team of experts, we decided on including Matcha Green Tea. The buzz you get from this kind of pure caffeine is much more energising and longer-lasting. It's all thanks to the amino acid L-Theanine, which slows the release of caffeine and has a soothing, relaxing effect, making it a much more sustainable energy booster, offering plant based vigour and vitality! It contributes to a healthy metabolism, boosts clarity and works as a natural detoxifier. Yes please and thank you!

Ah the magic of mushys! This miraculous mushroom blend isn't just full of cool names like Lion's Mane and Tremella but provides a host of health benefits, and (wait, there's more?!) is particularly powerful in both harmonising and boosting the immune system, and let's be honest, who's immune system doesn't want a good boost?

Our immune system works relentlessly (talk about overworked and underpaid, gah the horror!) to fight off invading organisms that can threaten our inner equilibrium, so keeping it in tip-top shape is crucial to maintaining optimal health.

Oh and in case they didn't have enough of a brag going on, mushys have potent antioxidant capability, ensuring cell protection, which is particularly beneficial in maintaining healthy skin and slowing down the ageing process. Thats right! Slowing. It. Down. And aint nobody complaining about that!

Passionflower is oh-so-pretty, but we don't judge books (or flowers) by their cover over here and it's what's on the inside that really makes this beauty shine. An incredible ingredient that helps make Dream as amazing as it is, Passionflower is a relaxation powerhouse and helps naturally induce sleep and reduce anxiety. In fact, little fun fact for you - because of its makeup, it naturally reduces brain activity meaning you can rest easy (pun intended!) knowing once your head hits the pillow the list of 5262849492 won't be on full volume inside your brain.

Lovewell is dedicated to ensuring that our bodies get the highest quality plant based proteins around.

We use protein to build and repair tissue, proving to be a very important building block for strong glossy hair (yes please!), healthy glowing skin and strong nails. Protein also helps to create enzymes, hormones and other amazing chemicals within our body, all of which help our bodies run in the way they are supposed to. Lovewell’s Blossom + Grow formulation contains protein from organic hemp as well as organic, sprouted, fermented pea. These unique protein sources are rich in amino acids, fibre and minerals, which help to fuel almost every aspect of our hardworking bodies!

We chose Hemp as one of our fundamental ingredients as it is a remarkable source of healthy fats, with an ideal ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids. Pea protein is leading the way in terms of animal free protein sources for having the highest level of protein of all of the plant based proteins out there! Not only this, but it also promotes lean muscle growth, heart health and weight loss!

The combination of theses proteins was the perfect 1:2 combo that we felt met all of our protein needs and would offer us the highest benefits for our bodies.

We’ve all heard about the importance of probiotics but what about the lesser known, but in the same family, prebiotics?  Prebiotics might be the lesser-known-name in the family but honestly, we think they need their own star on the walk of fame. These badasses are non-digestible fibres that work to stimulate the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria in the gut, ensuring that we are of our optimal gut flora health! Lovewell's specific formulation contains prebiotics from three magnificent and highly medicinal plants: Inulin from Organic Jerusalem Artichoke, Cocoa flavanols from organic, raw cacao powder and resistant starch from green bananas grown in tropical local gem Northern Queensland, Australia.

We were adamant during product development that we wanted zero sugar and nothing artificial in our supplements - "no nasties and all natural please!" Which, is where Stevia came into play. Our stevia is derived from the organic stevia leaf and contains little to no calories. Stevia is an amazing, natural, alternative to sugar which is 200-300x sweeter than table sugar, meaning you don’t need much of it at all to add sweetness. And because it’s a natural plant-based alternative to sugar, it's completely safe for both adults and children to consume. There’s no need to add any more sweeteners when you’re sweet enough already!
