Its all about chocolate and cocoa with a conscience.

🙌🏼❤️Raw cacao contains the highest concentration of anti-oxidants of any food in the WORLD.
Anti-oxidants help neutralize free radicals-which is a major cause of many degenerative diseases, cancer tumors, heart disease, and premature aging.
Raw cacao also contains the highest concentration of magnesium of any food in the world. 80% of Americans are deficient in MAGNESIUM- and as a result many are plagued with heart disease, joint problems, diabetes, and hypertension.

The mass production of chocolate includes pulverizing and roasting the beans, which destroys most of the flavanols that give your body the anti-oxidant boost it needs! This is why it’s important to buy QUALITY #cacao.
Toss a handful of cacao nibs or powder in your smoothies-or buy a delicious bar and nibble on it daily.

Cocoa flavanols improve cognition in young adults and protect from cognitive decline in the elderly.
A review of randomized controlled trials found that people generally had enhancements in working memory performance and improved visual information processing after eating cocoa flavanols.

Eating cocoa after a night of total sleep deprivation actually counteracted the cognitive impairment that lack of sleep can cause.
One should be cautious about buying any dark chocolate brand because a recent study found many brands of dark chocolate have lead and cadmium levels that exceed safety standards.

Only Now: Is at this precise instant, when the bean is separated from the placenta, when the sweetness in the flavor profile is irreversible determined. Not too late, so you do not get vinegary off flavors. Not too soon, so the astringency does not overthrows it all.

Sharing a brilliant documentary…

Sharing a brilliant documentary short made by a couple of young, creative British chocolate makers and multimedia artists.

Filmed on site in the Marañon Canyon in 2016, they did some of the most innovative drone recording you will ever see. Enjoy!

 

Cacao a guilt free treat | body+soul

Hot cacao is a great way to consume something nutritious while feeling decadent. But you should buy cacao in its raw form, rather than the highly processed, low-grade hot chocolates that contain nothing but empty kilojoules and little in the way of true cacao.
