Important Information

How Often Should I Drink?

There is nothing to mind about drinking cacao regularly. Our advice is to feel into your body and find what dose is best for you.

Cacao and Antidepressants

Ceremonial cacao is a natural antidepressant. Therefore it is not recommended to drink a strong dose of cacao if you are on an antidepressant until you know it works for you. (You know your body best!)

MAOI and SSRI type antidepressants are contraindicated with the tyramine in cacao which could result in serotonin syndrome. Side effects could include headaches and nausea, which may be unpleasant. So if you are on any kind of pharmaceutical antidepressant, stick to a low dose. And if you have any doubt, consult with your doctor. 

Cacao and Pregnancy / Post-Pregnancy

There is no harm in consuming a small dose of ceremonial cacao daily. But do not make it too strong. We suggest somewhere between 15-20 gr a day, but again, consult with your doctor if you have any doubt.

Cacao and Heart Conditions

The theobromine in cacao increases heart rate significantly. And it is a vasodilator lowering your blood pressure. So if you have a heart condition, we suggest you consult your doctor before drinking cacao and go lighter on the amounts until you know what works for you.

Cacao and Your Pet/s

We know your pet/s are cute and you love them, but keep them away from your cacao, especially dogs, parrots, and possibly horses, as they can die from drinking it. So now you have even more reasons to watch your cup, do not spill a drop of this exclusive drink.
