Cacao beans (Theobroma cacao) are a good source of calcium, iron, zinc, copper, manganese and potassium, as well as Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, E and pantothenic acid. They contain several compounds which stimulate the production of dopamine in the body and potent mood enhancers which can encourage an overall sense of wellbeing. The pure raw cacao is processed with heat to produce cocoa and chocolate.
Cocoa, remarkably rich in magnesium and a good source of sulphur, also contains high amounts of protective antioxidant compounds, such as polyphenols and flavonoids, which can be beneficial to heart health and may help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
Cocoa may also help maintain normal blood pressure, improve skin condition, and boost normal responses to insulin. Preliminary research also suggests that Cocoa may help with cognitive performance, attention span, reaction time and problem-solving skills by increasing blood flow to the brain.*
