1. Cacao FAQ

We want you to be well. 

Cacao is called a superfood and used by some even as a medicine dating all the way back to Mesoamerica. It's filled with flavonoids, which are antioxidant compounds that are said to protect against cell damage caused by free radicals, and can help reduce inflammation in the body.

Potiential the health benefits of chocolate *

︎ Antioxidants: Chocolates have a higher flavonoid content by weight than any other food. Raw Organic Cacao has over 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries.

Antioxidants neutralize free radicals and reduce damage from oxidative stress. Oxidative stress refers to the damage that excessive amounts of free radicals can inflict on cells and tissues in the body. Oxidative stress contributes to the natural aging process, which is why you often see high antioxidant foods being promoted for beauty/anti aging.

︎ Serotonin, Dopamine, and Phenylethalmine: There are three key ingredients here- tyrosine (precursor to dopamine,) tryptophan (precursor to serotonin,) and Phenylethalmine. These chemicals are responsible for mood regulation. These act on the emotional center of the brain (limbic system), and may be responsible for the feelings of euphoria that humans feel when they experience new love. Cacao circles all over the world have been using it to open the heart, and some nightclubs even promote cacao as a natural high with cacao dance nights.

︎ Anandamide: The word “anandamide” originates from the sanskrit “ananda,” which roughly translates to “bliss” or “joy.”

︎ Iron: Cacao is the highest plant-based source of iron known at 7.3mg per 100g. This compares to beef and lamb at 2.5mg, and spinach at 3.6mg. 

︎ Magnesium: Cacoa is also one of the highest plant-based sources of magnesium - the most commonly deficient mineral in Western diets. Magnesium is important for many processes in the body, including regulating muscle and nerve function, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels. Magnesium also relaxes the body.

︎ No Refined Sugar: We use coconut sugar that is chemically untreated, unrefined, and organic. Coconut sugar has a low glycemic index and prevents you from getting a sugar hangover or spiking cravings in the way that refined sugar does. Coconut sugar has a glycemic index of 35. (For comparison, refined table sugar’s glycemic index ranges from 60 to 75).

︎ What are adaptogens?

You may have already heard of adaptogens as their use has become more widespread in the past few years. For their adaptogenic effects we use mushrooms, herbs like ashwaganda, maca, and sage, as well as exotic berries. 

Adaptogens *can* help you to avert stress reactions in your body*, reduce inflammation*, boost your energy*, calm your nerves*, and help your body adapt to stressful environments*. Adaptogens are traditional wellness tools ~ plant medicine and have been used for thousands of years across the world. 

We offer chocolate with and without adaptogens.
