Cacao is powerful

When you drink cacao, you do your body a favour. Not only because it's delicious, but because it offers up a good amount of iron, potassium and magnesium, minerals that support healthy bodily functions by delivering oxygen throughout the body, helping regulate blood sugar, enabling your ability to build muscle and many more.

Cacao is one of the richest sources of flavonoids, free radicals fighting agents that have been linked to blood vessel health, lower blood pressure and better cholesterol levels. Some studies claim that hot cacao has an antioxidant concentration that is close to twice that of serving of red wine, between two and three times the strength of green tea and as much as five times stronger than black tea!

Cacao's antioxidant load keeps your body's cells healthy and ready to fight infection by cold, flu or any other common bug. Antioxidants can also help you fight wrinkles and premature ageing (ever wondered why people use cacao for face masks?)! Cacao is high in certain amino acids that act as precursors of dopamine, a hormone that triggers feeling of pleasure!

What's the key to taking advantage of all that cacao has to offer? Stop thinking of what they tell you! Cacao doesn't have to be weighed down by grams of health-harming sugar! You are in control of how much sugar you add to it and it should be just enough to overcome the bitterness of the cacao powder or paste.

Now, ENJOY! 💚
