What is xylitol?
Xylitol is a naturally occurring compound that tastes sweet, but does not affect blood sugar or cause tooth decay. Xylitol is produced naturally in human metabolism and is also found in sources such as schizandra berries, various hardwood trees, and corn. Most "plant based" xylitol is made from GMO corn- we would never put this kind of xylitol in our bodies or our products. The xylitol used in our chocolate is made only from sustainably harvested North American birch trees.
What is stevia?
Stevia is a small leafy green plant that grows well in a variety of climates. My aunt actually grows it in her garden in Santa Barbara, CA. Stevia is very interesting because it contains compounds called rebaudiosides that taste sweet, but do not contain any sugar and do not affect blood sugar. We use a very special stevia that does not have the bitter aftertaste of many stevia products.
What makes the mushrooms in these chocolates special?
The mushrooms in our chocolates (reishi, chaga, lion's mane, and tremella) are from an elite class of mushrooms known as tree mushrooms. They affect the body very differently than conventional ground mushrooms and have been extremely well studied.
Is Addictive Wellness chocolate certified organic?
In sourcing our ingredients, our primary focus is finding the purest and most potent botanicals. Sometimes these come from certified organic operations, sometimes they come from wild remote mountain environments in rich soil watered by natural springs that aren’t certified. We’re always going for the most beneficial ingredients and we’re not going to let an organic certificate stand in the way of us using the highest quality herbs available.

Why “Addictive Wellness”?
The word “addictive” comes from the latin word “addictionem” meaning “to be devoted to your loved one, to your god, to your passions". It was first used in its modern meaning in the 19th century when it started to describe people’s obsession with and "devotion to" opium.
