A. Why Choose our Cacao Powder?
Our raw organic cacao powder is Pure Heirloom Ecuadorian Arriba Nacional Cacao Powder. It is unsweetened and minimally processed and is packed with nutrition. It is also the best tasting raw cacao in the market.
B. Cacao Health Benefits :
Raw Organic Cacao Powder not only tastes delicious, but there are heaps of amazing benefits that come along with it. I would like to share some information on why Cacao powder is so good for you and also to let you know that raw chocolate is very nutritious and healthy to consume, especially when choosing the least processed organic cacao. So let me explain, the benefits of Cacao which are proved by research.
1. Cacao contains Flavanols.
The product can be called the best if the nutrient factor of that product is the BEST. Cacao has Flavanols, which are antioxidants. Now for those who don’t know what antioxidants are: Antioxidants help your body fight Oxidation. Oxidation eventually destroys the cells of the organisms and may sometimes even slow down the process of new cell creation. The flavanols in Cacao or Raw Cocoa work as antioxidants and stop this Oxidation process which means that the cells won’t be destroyed in the process and also there will be less slowing down of new cell generation.
2. One of the foods high in Magnesium is Cacao
Magnesium-rich foods have a lot of benefits on your body. Magnesium is directly associated with Bones, thus increasing bone density and also helps speed up bone repair. Consuming magnesium is proven to reduce the risk of diabetes by 15 to 20 percent. Magnesium is good for the heart as well, which means that it will lower the risk of a Cardiac Arrest. Some research has also proved that consuming magnesium can help you treat Migraines.
3. Cacao is the highest source of Iron.
Yes, you read that right, not everyone knows about this but this is true. But it surely has a twist to it. The Iron in cacao is a plant-based Iron called non-heme. Now, I’m not saying that you won’t get the iron from this, but if you want to gain maximum benefits from such Iron, then you have to mix it with Vitamin C. Vitamin C is found in Oranges, Kiwis, Strawberries. So, start making your own smoothies and shakes using these fruits and Cacao Powder to yield maximum benefits.
4. The C Factor, relation of Cacao and Calcium.
Cacao is another calcium rich food. As I mentioned above the benefits of magnesium in Cacao and how it helps in improving the bone parameters, it is easy to identify the secret nutrient of Cacao which is Calcium. Bones are totally Calcium, which means there is a relation between Magnesium and Calcium. Magnesium acts as a catalyst for Calcium which eventually increases bone density and bone repair. Calcium also improves Muscles Contraction and reducing the risk of Blood Clotting. Calcium is also good for teeth which means the calcium in Cacao will help you to maintain the strength of the teeth and even prevent cavities. So yes, the C Factor has many benefits.
5. Is it REALLY true that Chocolate makes people happy?
When you’re happy, your brain starts producing serotonin. An Amino-acid called tryptophan is in the Cacao which increases the production rate of serotonin, thus making you feel happy. The other chemical which the brain produces is phenylethylamine. It is produced when you fall in love. These chemicals are found in Cacao which makes you feel addicted to the chocolate and you get the cravings. These chemicals are proven to be antidepressants which can help you fight anxiety and depression and even control your anger.
6. The new Anti-ageing product for your skin.
The antioxidants in Cacao can provide countless benefits for your body. One such benefit is the repair of the skin. The antioxidants will fight and remove the dead cells of the skin and increasing the production of the new skin cells. These antioxidants will also improve the blood flow through the skin which will help you fight acne, pimples, and other damage such as premature aging. Blood flow will improve the complexion of your skin and even give a natural glow to your skin. Cacao once extracted from the plant is used to make Cacao Powder, Cacao Nibs and even Cocoa Butter which can be used as a moisturizer for your skin.
There are limitless benefits of Cacao for your body. But as I said earlier, it totally depends on which Cacao Powder you’re choosing. It is always advisable to choose Raw Organic Cacao Powder to gain maximum benefits from Cacao.
