Health Benefits Of Our Cacao
It has become widely known that cacao is an excellent health food, but as you go from dark chocolate to pure cacao and then on to ceremonial grade cacao, you'll get more of the benefits straight up! As you discard the additives and work with premium cacao, you'll discover how delighting the senses and treating your body well can taste great.
In this light, our cacao is truly a health food extraordinaire. Our cacao contains:
- High levels of anti-oxidants, such as flavanols & polyphenols
- Theobromine, a bitter alkaloid that is a gentle & grounded stimulant, especially compared to caffeine, which is actually very low in cacao
- Mood enhancers (neurotransmitters) such as serotonin, PEA & anandamide
- High levels of magnesium, a muscle relaxant and important mineral in our diet
- About 50% cacao butter, a source of healthy fats
- Safe levels of heavy metals. We test our cacao to ensure this
Our cacao is a whole food source, the way nature intended. Chocolate & cocoa powder have been processed further than necessary, so join the cacao tribe that is re-discovering the magic and benefits of using ceremonial cacao for health and well-being!
