The Healing properties of Raw Cacao:


  • Magnesium is the primarily mineral missing when heart problems occur. 
  • Magnesium increases the overall vigor of the heart muscle. 
  • This mineral also decreases blood coagulation thus lowering blood pressure and helping the heart pump more effectively. 
  • Cacao, of course, is a fantastic food source of heart-supporting magnesium.


  • According to research cited in The New York Times, fresh cacao beans are super-rich in antioxidant flavonols. 
  • Cacao beans contain 10,000 milligrams (10 grams) per 100 grams of flavonol antioxidants. 
  • This is a whopping 10% antioxidant concentration level! 
  • This makes cacao one of the richest sources of antioxidants of any food.

Anti-Depressant Properties:

  • Cacao is a great source of serotonin, dopamine, and phenylethylamine, three well-studied neurotransmitters, which help alleviate depression and are associated with feelings of well being. 
  • Cacao contains monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAO Inhibitors) that improve our mood because they allow serotonin and dopamine to remain in the bloodstream longer without being broken down. 
  • Cacao contains anandamide which delivers blissful feelings. 
  • Cacao also contains B vitamins, which are associated with brain health. 
  • Cacao contains significant quantities of the amino acid tryptophan which is yet another powerful mood-enhancing nutrient. 
  • All this makes cacao a natural Anti-Depressant!

Lose weight, eat chocolate!

  • Anyone who eats chocolate knows that it diminishes appetite. 
  • There is evidence indicating MAOIs also diminish appetite. 
  • There is actually no scientific evedince to implicate chocolate consumption with obesity. 
  • In fact the reverse seems to be the case. 
  • Eating cacao helps one to loose weight by allowing you to eat less.
