THE PERFECT WINTER DRINK

Cozy up with a calming cup of delicious Vanilla Shuteye Chai Hot Cacao after dinner for great sleep and more amazing health benefits!

Vanilla Shuteye Chai Hot Cacao

In the colder months, our immune and nervous systems need extra support to stay balanced. As the temperatures drop, so does our blood circulation, which causes extra work for our hearts to get stimulated. Things like regular exercise, stretching, massages and staying warm can all be easy practices to incorporate into your routine!

We love to relax with warming chai spices for the high antioxidants, boost in immune function, and to get our blood moving. Not only are chai spices rich in flavor, but they also assist in the healthy functioning of the digestive and respiratory system, have antimicrobial actions, and have blood circulating benefits!

Ned’s Shuteye Chai is a blend of chai spices, without the caffeine, and an added boost of herbs, Magnesium Glycinate, Gaba and L-Theanine to promote optimal relaxation. This is the perfect combination for the seasonal stresses winter can bring. Try making our Vanilla Shuteye Chai Hot Cacao, for a delicious, warming, mood elevating after dinner drink that is perfect for fighting the winter blues. Keep scrolling for the recipe!
