Health Benefits of Drinking Cacao

Health Benefits of Drinking Cacao

We're just a little obsessed with the magical powers of Cacao! 

It really is an amazing superfood, that we believe needs to be screamed and shouted about (and yes, we know we may be a little biased)

Health benefits of pure cacao

ANTIOXIDANTS

Cacao is super high in antioxidants, specifically a group of polyphenol antioxidants called flavonoids AKA anti-inflammatory ninjas.

ENERGY BOOST

Cacao rich in theobromine, a natural stimulant very similar to caffeine but without the jittery effects. Caffeine affects the nervous system, hence the anxious feeling many people experience, whereas Theobromine affects the cardiovascular system (that's why they call cacao a heart opener!). 

CALMING

It's high in magnesium, which helps to regulate the release of stress hormones including cortisol, like pressing a brake on your body's nervous system.

GUT HEALTH

Cacao is a great source of dietary fibre, contributing to digestive support.

Cacao is also a great source of zinc and plant-based iron.
