Raw Cacao Powder- Arriba Nacional
Our cacao is a raw heirloom source from the cacao seed which is then fermented and dried. Cacao has been considered one of the highest raw sources of antioxidants available and can be enjoyed for a variety of reasons, other than just its wonderful chocolate taste. Cacao powder contains several nutrients to support overall well being, from fiber to monounsaturated fats, cholesterol-free saturated fats, vitamins, minerals, natural carbohydrates and also protein. Raw cacao contains over 300 different chemical compounds alongside its antioxidant power. All of these elements combined allow the body to receive its many benefits, including its ability to lower cholesterol and improve heart function, and may even reduce chance of various diseases. Several studies have shown chocolate to affect your emotions and mood positively by raising your serotonin levels. The neurotransmitter, theobromine, is also present, which releases the compound anandamide, producing unique feelings of contentment and overall relaxation. Because of this, cacao may be very beneficial in people dealing with depression and overall stress and anxiety. All of these nutrients within raw forms of cacao make it a wonderful superfood that can be incorporated into drinks, smoothies, blended potions and raw desserts.Resources
