40 TIMES the heart-protective antioxidants of blueberries.
One of the highest concentrations of magnesium in any natural food source.
Highest plant-based source of iron.
More calcium than cow’s milk.
Plus over 700 compounds.
Improve Brain Function
Cacao contains flavonol, a flavonoid bioactive compound reported to improve blood flow to the brain, which boosts memory, creativity, and focus.
“We know that flavanols facilitate brain cell connections and survival, and protect brain cells from toxins or the negative effects of inflammation,” says Dr. Miguel Alonso-Alonso, a neuroscientist with a strong interest in nutrition at Harvard-affiliated Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
Boost Energy Naturally Without the Crash
Due to the high vitamin and mineral content, including over 700 compounds, cacao has been found to nourish the body giving long lasting energy without over- stimulating the nervous system. One of the highest concentrates of magnesium found in a natural food source, cacao provides high amounts of energy while combating fatigue. Magnesium is also shown to reduce Type II Diabetes and protect against osteoporosis.
Cacao contains polyphenol antioxidants from the same group as green tea and red wine. This protects the cells from premature oxidation and destruction leading to feeling and looking younger. This antioxidant also leads to better skin texture, improved microcirculation, and increased oxygen saturation.
The flavonol in cacao also supports heart health, acting as an anti-inflammatory, regulating blood sugar, improving circulation, helping prevent artery hardening, and reducing bad cholesterol. It has also been found to be just as beneficial as an aspirin a day at thinning blood to prevent clots.
Liver + Pancreas
Cacao is shown to support the driving of nutrients into and out of cells, blood sugar regulation, tissue repair, and our immune system.
Skin, Hair + Nails
Cacao contains sulfur, which is found to be significant to our hair. Collagen growth is stimulated and keratin is increased, allowing skin, hair and nails to shine and be healthy. Cacao has also been found to be a natural sunscreen, allowing people to stay on average twice as long before getting a sunburn.
Metabolism + Gut Health
Cacao was shown to reduce the stress hormone cortisol, increase metabolism, and improve gut microbial activity in just two weeks.
