Raw Cacao has been revered for centuries by cultures such as the Aztecs and Mayans, who called cocoa œthe food of the gods�. After the 1500™s it made its way to Europe and eventually spread across the globe. Cocoa is full of minerals including magnesium, copper, manganese, calcium, sulfur, zinc, and iron. It contains essential, heart healthy fats and antioxidant rich flavonoids. It is one of the richest sources of antioxidants found in nature. Cocoa helps promote overall cardiovascular health and longevity by lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, contributing to better circulation and increasing nitric oxide levels. Along with decreasing the risk of heart attack and stroke, improved blood circulation contributes to mental clarity and a healthy brain. Delicious and nutritious!
