Chocolate is one of the worlds most well-loved foods. Yet very few have ever had the raw food that all chocolate comes from - cacao beans! All chocolate comes from cacao beans - the seeds of the cacao fruit - which grows on a jungle tree. Botanically, cacao is truly a nut. Cacao beans taste like dark chocolate, because they are dark chocolate!

The Healing properties of RAW Cacao Beans

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.

Cacao has more antioxidant flavonoids than any food tested so far, including blueberries, red wine, and black and green teas. In fact, it has up to four times the quantity of antioxidants found in green tea.

Antioxidants in cocoa protect the body from ageing and disease caused by free radicals. Raw cacao contains up to four times the antioxidants of traditional cacao powder, and has the highest antioxidant value of all the natural foods in the world

According to research cited in The New York Times, fresh cacao beans are super-rich in antioxidant flavonols. Cacao beans contain 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.

Suggested Use: you can eat them whole - plain or dipped into raw honey. They can be ground into a rich dark powder using a coffee grinder to make raw desserts of all kinds. Blend them into your favourite smoothies or and them to a trail/snack mix with Goji berries and raisins. The skins are edible so you don't need to peel them first.
