DID YOU KNOW?

Here are a few health benefits of raw chocolate (cacao):

  • cacao is a raw, unprocessed, healthier form of chocolate that is one of the world’s best sources of powerful antioxidants, and is the richest food source of magnesium
  • chocolate aka cacao and cocoa is a superfood!
  • chocolate contains more antioxidants than blueberries, green tea and red wine; and nearly 8 times more antioxidants found in strawberries
  • when you “crave” chocolate, your body is actually lacking in magnesium
  • cacao contains magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, vitamins, minerals, proteins, beta-carotene, fiber, and alkaloids
  • relieves stress
  • consuming cacao everyday is not healthy, due to the theobromine found in cacao. Theobromine is similar to caffeine. you will have mood swings, may clogue up your arteries, make you anxious, and change in emotions.
  • neutrals your nerves levels (calms your muscles down)
  • provides energy
  • rich in antioxidants
  • cacao contains anti-bacterial properties that fight against tooth decay
  • contains anti-depressant properties! (A GOOD reason to smile 🙂
  • dark chocolate is shown to lower high blood pressure and LDL cholesterol, also improves circulation
  • neutralize free radicals
  • helps to improve digestion and lose weight!
  • consuming chocolate triggers the release of endorphins
  • by weight, cocoa has more protein than eggs
  • has a bitter taste, but best when added into recipes
  • 90% of Americans have at least some chocolate nearly every day, and it’s usually though and taken as a guilty pleasure rather than a healthy indulgence. this chocolate is 100% GUILT FREE (wait, i said that already;)
  • remember, eating raw cacao IS HEALTHY; just not safe to consume everyday. Instead, you can add carob in replacement of cacao. Carob is a healthier choice than cacao actually because it doesn’t give you those “side effects“. basically, when cacao is eaten in moderation (just like nuts), is great for you and helps to avoid the ‘side effects’. there has been a lot of research done on cacao and a lot of incorrect information out there on cacao. you just have to know how to research to find the right information because there will always be articles written out there that always have something negative things to say, along with their information. it’s just a controversial subject in the raw food movement. everybody has their own beliefs about it – which is fine. you just have to know which information to believe and which is true.
  • great cacao alternatives are carob, lucama and maca

I bet you didn’t know these facts, huh? 😉

Now folks, let’s be realistic. Chocolate alone (with no added ingredients like milk, eggs, sugar, you know….) is healthy for you. In most simplest terms, PURE CHOCOLATE at its raw, unprocessed form.
