3. What Are The Health Benefits Of Cacao?
a) Anti-aging Benefits
Polyphenol antioxidants found in cacao belong to the same group of antioxidants as green tea and red wine. These antioxidants protect our cells from premature oxidation or destruction and can keep us looking and feeling younger longer.
b) Energy Boosting Superfood
Cacao contains Theobromine which has a mild stimulating and energetic effect, without the over stimulating and jittery effects of coffee. However, the high content of Magnesium makes Cacao the real energy superstar. Magnesium is essential for your body to make energy and many of us don’t get enough of it in our daily diet.
c) A Natural Mood Elevator
Cocoa beans are considered to be nature’s anti-depressant. These beans contain dopamine, phenylethylamine (PEA) and serotonin, all of which are used to promote positive mental health and moods. That is why you instantly feel happy with some chocolate.
d) Magnesium For A Healthy Heart & Brain
Magnesium increases heart strength and improves its condition. Magnesium also decreases the risk of blood clots. This in turn, reduces the risks of strokes and heart attacks. Also cacao helps improve the blood flow to the brain keeping it healthy and sharp at all times.
e) Improves Digestive Health
A sufficient amount of fibre delivered with each serving of cacao supports digestion while cacao stimulates the body’s production of digestive enzymes.
f) Balances Hormonal Mood Swings
Cacao boosts brain levels of serotonin, the feel good brain chemical. When women are experiencing PMS serotonin levels drop dramatically. The benefits of cacao are proven to boost the brain levels of calming hormones and restore feelings of well-being.
4. Why Is Cacao Associated With Love?
This is due to phenylethylamine (PEA), which is a chemical that is produced in our bodies when we fall in love. PEA is found in abundance in cacao.
5. Why Does Cacao Make Us Feel Good?
Anandamide (the bliss chemical) is released when we feel great. It is found in Cacao. Cacao contains enzyme inhibitors that decrease our bodies’ ability to breakdown anandamide. This means that, when we eat cacao, natural anandamide may stick around longer, making us feel good longer.
6. Does Cacao Contain Caffeine?
Contrary to popular opinion, cacao is a poor source of caffeine. A typical sample of cacao nibs or cacao beans will yield anywhere from zero caffeine to 1,000 parts per millions of caffeine (less than 1/20th of the caffeine present in coffee.
7. Can I Have Allergies To Cacao?
A recent study showed that only one out of 500 people who thought they were allergic to chocolate actually tested positive. Allergies to chocolate are quite rare. It is typically the case that the person is in fact allergic to milk and dairy products or other ingredients commonly found in chocolates. Typical highly allergic ingredients may include soy, milk, gluten or nuts. Some people can be allergic to cooked and processed chocolate but are not allergic to Raw Cacao.
8. Is Cacao Fattening?
There is a misperception that chocolate is fattening. In truth, the fats in cocoa butter are healthy fats. Cacao contains oleic acid, a heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, also found in olive oil that may raise good cholesterol. Also, substances found in cacao are known to help reduce appetite.
