Are you a chocolate lover like us but don't like all the sugar that comes with it? The good news is that if you strip all the sugar, milk and butter from most chocolates you see on the market, you will be left with raw rich Cacao which has some pretty incredible health benefits with just as much flavor and mood boosting effects.
- Cacao is rich in polyphenols, which have significant health benefits, including reduced inflammation and improved cholesterol levels.
- Cacao is rich in flavanols, which lower blood pressure by improving nitric oxide levels and blood vessel function.
- Cacao can improve blood flow and reduce cholesterol. Eating up to one serving of chocolate per day may reduce your risk of heart attack, heart failure and stroke.
We like to add raw cacao to smoothies, desserts, even your favorite coffee or hot chocolates.
