Brett Acker and Victoria Chaires are the owners and creators of Diosa Organics. I recently met up with them to review their philosophy and products. Brett explained that before moving to Mexico, he started living a holistic lifestyle, one which nourishes the mind, body and soul. He had worked with many herbs and teas in the US and soon noticed a lack of available products in the Riviera Maya. His passion for health and love for the area started Diosa Organics.
“Diosa Organics was inspired by Goddess, Mother, Mother Earth, and the birth of Conscious Living; nurturing your Body, Mind, and Soul with nutrition, conscious activities, and a natural lifestyle. Diosa is a representation of my personal respect and recognition of a great shift of conscious creativity returning to the Divine Feminine.” explained owner Brett Acker. As a mother nourishes her child, Diosa Organics helps each person nourish themselves.
Their endeavor began in 2014 with their first product Kombucha.“Kombucha is a symbiotic culture of beneficial bacteria and yeast living in harmony. Kombucha eats sugar and caffeine, usually in the form of a tea, and over a few weeks of fermenting produces a probiotic elixir! This Nectar of the Gods, as the Chinese refer to it, is loaded with natural probiotic bacteria, vitamins, minerals and alkaline forming acids. Kombucha regulates intestinal flora, detoxifies the body, balances pH, improves oxygen performance in cells and improves digestion, just to name a few of the many benefits.” siad Brett. Since Kombucha was not available here in the Playa area, it became popular quickly with many expats The success of their first product led to the creation of super food mixes and packaging of Chia and Tapioca. They have two great teas Jiaogulan or popularly Gynostemma and Black Oolong.
Diosa Organic products increase the body’s ability to resist the damaging effects of stress and promote or restore normal physiological functioning.
So if you’d like to supplement your health when on your Riviera Maya vacation, or continue a healthy regime you do at home, you can find Diosa Organics on Facebook, and the many markets held through the area.
