Cacao and Physical Health
Theobromine for lasting energy
Ceremonial Cacao is packed with theobromine—a chemical relative of caffeine. However, theobromine delivers a much more even, long-lasting energy than its jittery cousin. What would happen if you cut out the coffee and enjoyed your morning boost without the mid-day crash?
An antioxidant powerhouse
Ceremonial grade Cacao is one of the most antioxidant-rich foods on Earth. Fight aging and disease while enjoying a delicious cup of Cacao? It doesn't get any better than this.
Incredible nutrient density
Ceremonial grade Cacao is among the greatest vegan sources of calming magnesium and circulation-supporting iron in the world.
Cacao for Mental Wellness
Mental wellness is the optimal support of our cognition. How do we keep our synapses firing so that we’re present and capable? As we have all experienced, general physical illness usually translates to poor mental wellness, so the dietary benefit Cacao provides to our whole body is an important aide to our brain balance. However, Cacao has some molecules that aide our mental processes, particularly. Cacao is packed with tryptophan for serotonin synthesis, tyramine and phenylethylamine (PEA) to support dopamine regulation, and endocannabinoid system supporters like anandamide to aide in mind-body homeostasis. Couple these benefits with evidence that theobromine increases oxygenation of the brain’s gray matter, improving mental clarity and acuity, and Cacao can have big impacts on our mental wellness.
