Lower Your Acidity Intake
Brewed cacao is near to pH Neutral (6.4 - 6.8) and is significantly less acidic than coffee
Boost Your Immune System
Cacao contains one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants to boost your immune system of any food in the world. By weight it has more antioxidants than red wine, blueberries, açai, pomegranates, and goji berries combined!
Feel Great, Increase Focus, Reduce Stress, and Sleep Better
- Our body produces the chemical phenylethylamine (aka “love drug”) when we fall in love and increases focus and alertness. This natural chemical is also found in cacao.
- An endorphin called anadamide (aka “bliss chemical”) is produced by our body after exercise that makes us feel great and reduce stress. It has also been found in only one plant – cacao.
- Cacao also contains serotonin, a “feel-good” brain chemical and a primary neurotransmitter in the body that is a natural anti-depressant and plays a major role in mood and emotional health.
- Cacao contains Tryptophan, a natural anti-depressant amino acid, that transforms into stress-protective neurotransmitters that enhance relaxation and promote better sleep.
Curb Your Appetite and Lose Weight
Low in calories, fat and carbs, cacao also acts as a natural appetite suppressant that helps curb your appetite and promotes weight loss.
Support Your Heart, Brain, and Bone Health
Cacao is one of the best natural plant sources of magnesium. Magnesium helps supports the heart, aids digestion, balances brain chemistry, and builds strong bones. Many Americans are chronically magnesium deficient, cacao is an amazing source for this nutrient.
