Story, Folklore, History
Cacao is said to be the food with the highest amount of antioxidant. In raw form, cacao powder contains more than 1,500 beneficial compounds! The flavonoids found in cacao help relax the walls of our cells and blood vessels. This is good news for anyone with high blood pressure. Cacao also contains plenty of the muscle-relaxing mineral magnesium, known to help improve sleep and relieve constipation. Cacao can help to give a bit of an energy boost. It contains a stimulant called theobromine, which is similar to caffeine but doesn’t cause the same “crashed” feeling shortly after consuming it.
