Cacao is a nutrient-dense superfood, traditionally used to protect the heart and brain.* Our Cacao comes from a single origin farm in Ecuador that has been consciously cultivating ancestral seeds since 1892. Cacao is considered a sacred offering amongst many indigenous tribes. The Cacao tree is said to house the spirits of the gods.
Raw cacao is also one of the highest plant-based sources of magnesium, the most deficient mineral in the Western world. magnesium is important for a healthy heart and helps turn glucose into energy enabling your brain to work with laser-sharp clarity and focus. Cacao contains more calcium than regular cow's milk. It has 160mg per 100g vs. 125mg per 100 ml of milk.
Cacao is also a great source to help combat depression. Cacao is a great source of four scientifically proven bliss chemicals – serotonin, tryptophan, tyrosine and phenylethylamine. These neurotransmitters are associated with cosy feelings of wellbeing, happiness and can even alleviate depression.
