The Greatest News for Chocolate Lovers!
This superfood, raw cacao powder, is just about the greatest news ever for chocolate-lovers. It is a “super-healthy” chocolate powder.
As you’ve probably heard by now, dark chocolate is high in antioxidant content, it promotes cardiovascular health and slows down the aging process. Good news indeed and there’s so much more to the story.
Raw cacao, the real unprocessed cacao bean, is considered by many health food experts as one of the healthiest foods in the world!
Its resume is absolutely stunning:
- Raw cacao has the highest concentration of antioxidants of any food known to man. As a basis for comparison, it is 20 times more concentrated in antioxidants than 70% cocoa chocolate.
- It has the highest concentration of several key nutrients, including iron and magnesium. This is significant because up to 80% of Westerners are deficient in magnesium, which has been linked to the vast majority of chronic disease that plagues our society.
- It is virtually the only food in the world that helps our brain produce more “feel-good hormones”. It contains PEA (increases dopamine production), Tryptophan (increases serotonin production), and Anandamide (known as the “Bliss Chemical”- it’s usually released when we are in love or after physical exercise). Consuming raw cacao makes us feel slightly amazing, slightly high and euphoric.
- But best of all, it tastes like chocolate, because it is chocolate!
