Cacao is the raw ingredient to which is added milk, sugar and fillers to make chocolate.

Raw Cacao beans contain 10 grams of flavonol antioxidants per 100 grams, an incredible 10%. Antioxidants absorb the free radicals which cause cell and tissue damage. Cocoa powder has level of antioxidants - nearly 4 times that of Goji Berries.

Raw cacao is a dietary source of magnesium, the most deficient mineral in western civilisation. Magnesium is the most important mineral for a healthy functioning heart. It also plays a key role in producing energy for the neurons in the brain from glucose. Without an abundance of magnesium the brain ceases to works with clarity and focus.

A natural source of theobromine, long considered a heart tonic and mild stimulant, cacao also contains epicatechin, a flavonol that improves the function of the blood vessels.

Cacao is a great source of neurotransmitters which are associated with feelings of well being and help alleviate depression. Two of which (one is called the bliss chemical) are found in abundance in the brains of happy people and are particularly released when we are feeling happy. Both of these are present in raw cacao in large enough quantities to affect the brain and lift our moods. Cacao also keeps neurotransmitters in the bloodstream for longer without being broken down.

Organic raw cacao is much more potent than the processed chocolate and doesn’t have any sugar or dairy products countering the positive effects of the goodness in raw cacao.
