Cacao (Chocolate)

Benefits:

Raw Cacao Powder is a key ingredient in chocolate and in it's pure, untampered form has numerous health benefits. It is extremely rich in antioxidants and is high in theobromine and anandamide which are responsible for the small euphoric sensation some get from chocolate and a reduction in depression. It is also extremely vitamin and nutrient dense, containing Vitamin a, b1, b2, b3, b5, b6, c, e, magnesium, copper, calcium, manganese, zinc, sulphur, iron, chromium, phosphorus, omega 6 fatty acids, saturated fats, amino acids, and carbohydrates. 

Easy Access: Cacao and chocolate are abundant in modern society, but many sources are heated to extreme temperatures which make them less nutritious. Dark and raw chocolate from a health food store or off the internet are your safest bet for a good source of cacao. You can also buy the raw powder and use it to make delicious chocolate creations.
