Description Ingredients
Our Cacao Powder is made from a Ecuadorian "Crillio variety" of Cacao Beans. Raw Cacao Nibs are cold-pressed, separating the oil and leaving the active nutrients. The remainder is a dry Cacao that is then cold-ground, fine-milled, and sifted leaving just the finished product - the most vibrant, organic Cacao Powder. No chemicals, hexane or solvents are ever used. All the delicate minerals, enzymes and nutrients are in tact!

About Cacao:

Super High in Antioxidants: Cacao has higher Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity (ORAC) values than many common foods (ORAC values measure how powerful an antioxidant a substance is). An antioxidant is a substance that removes potentially damaging oxidizing agents from a living organism.

Rich in Essential Minerals & Vitamins: magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, potassium and manganese, A, B1, B2, B3, E and pantothenic acid.

A Cholesterol-Friendly Food: Cacao is primarily comprised of two saturated fatty acids, palmitic and stearic acids, and the mono unsaturated oleic acid but does not raise blood cholesterol.

Stimulating, Energizing & Clarifying: The stimulants theobromine, caffeine, tyramine and phenylethylamine (PEA) provide a much-needed lift if you are experiencing brain fog. Theobromine is a very mild stimulant that is primarily responsible for the balanced energizing effect of cacao. Cacao also contains a very low amount of caffeine, much less than found in coffee and tea. Cacao can also have the opposite effect for those who need it. It contains the amino acid Tryptophan that enhances relaxation and promotes better sleep.

A Natural Mood Enhancer: Cacao can increase the level of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin levels are often decreased in people with depression and in those experiencing PMS symptoms. Tryptophan, an essential amino acid, lessens anxiety by producing the neurotransmitter serotonin. Phenylethylamine, also in Cacao, is a slight antidepressant and stimulant similar to the body's own dopamine and adrenaline. Cacao also contains Arginine, the aphrodisiac-like amino acid. Researchers have discovered that phenylethylamine (PEA) contained in Cacao has a positive effect in enhancing feelings of falling in LOVE!

Pain Suppressant: Cacao is a natural analgesic. It also releases endorphins, the body's natural opiates that reduce sensitivity to pain.

May reduce high blood pressure and increase blood flow:* Cacao helps the body process nitric oxide (NO), a compound critical for healthy blood flow and blood pressure. It reduces the blood's ability to clot and thus may reduce the risk of stroke and heart attacks and keep high blood pressure down. Also rich in magnesium, the number one mineral that assists and supports healthy heart functioning.
