Eat More Chocolate: Summary

In “Eat More Chocolate”, Detective Ev welcomes Sage Dammers, co-founder, CEO, and master chocolatier of Addictive Wellness, to discuss the transformative power of chocolate and adaptogens in achieving holistic well-being. Sage shares his personal journey from dealing with health challenges, such as cystic acne and Candida due to a nutritionally lacking diet, to discovering the healing potentials of superfoods and Eastern herbalism. His unique approach combines pleasure with wellness, crafting healthful indulgences like chocolate that are both delicious and nourishing.

Sage delves into the science and ethos behind Addictive Wellness, explaining how their products bridge the gap between healthful living and gourmet tastes. Highlighting the importance of quality sourcing, Sage discusses the critical issue of mycotoxins in conventional chocolates and how Addictive Wellness provides a mycotoxin-free alternative, appealing to health-conscious consumers and those affected by mold illness. His passion for health extended into a discussion on adaptogens and their benefits, advocating for personal experimentation to optimize health.

The conversation also touches on the broader implications of ethical sourcing and sustainability in the food industry, with Sage emphasizing the commitment of Addictive Wellness to ethical practices and high-quality sourcing. This episode not only sheds light on the path to wellness through mindful consumption but also inspires listeners to reconsider their dietary choices, highlighting the possibility of marrying health benefits with the joy of eating, especially with chocolates.
