The Hero is back and it's better than ever before
In classical mythology, a hero is “a being of godlike prowess and beneficence who often came to be honoured as a divinity”… exactly how we like to view our flagship product, The Hero.
But, as with all Hero’s, there’s always room for improvement- a new cape, better diet, aerodynamic tights- everyone needs to update themselves from time to time.
In the middle of 2020, when the world was in viral turmoil, we at Mary’s Muse decided to use this time to reflect, re-evaluate and re-invent. We updated our packaging, registered our products with SAHPRA, moved to an FDA-approved, GMP-licensed manufacturing facility, launched our vegan CBD-infused Fruit Chews and reformulated The Hero.
The reason behind this reformulation was two-fold:
- We only wanted to include ingredients that come from an established, reliable and fully compliant sources (Lion’s Mane mushrooms for example, as much as we love them, are currently only grown in SA by small, unregulated farms).
- We wanted to introduce capsules to allow for a higher amount of super herbs to be included in each dose (only a certain amount of herbs can dilute in an oil which is limiting).
The end result… our new and improved Hero, which is a synergistic blend of cannabidiol (CBD) and six adaptogenic super herbs. Each ingredient has been thoroughly researched and specifically chosen for the unique physical, immuno-protective and mental health benefit it may offer. It’s an all-round health-boosting superstar if we may say so ourselves ☺
Let’s dive a bit deeper into the ingredients to unpack the powerful benefits of The Hero.
