WHY CEREMONIAL CACAO
There are so many reasons why we think you should make ceremonial cacao a part of your daily life, and here are some.
MAKES YOU HAPPY AND RELAXED
Drinking ceremonial grade cacao has therapeutic impacts on creating new neural pathways that change our daily experience to include more joy, love, and connection. Sounds amazing, right?
Pure cacao also helps boost our serotonin and dopamine levels. It is a natural antidepressant with no side effects that can help relieve emotional stress.
HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANTS
Ceremonial cacao has possibly the highest amount of antioxidants of any food, even more than acai and blueberries.
INCREASES ENERGY AND FOCUS
Organic cacao increases the blood flow to the brain, creating more mental agility, awareness, energy, and focus without making you jittery, as coffee can do for some.
BALANCING THE HORMONAL HEALTH
We have personal experience with handmade cacao, such as its success in regulating our hormones and healing hormonal acne. It has drastically reduced our PMS symptoms and menstrual cramps.
Plus, the crazy-bad mood around our moon/menstrual time dropped behind. Do we need to say more?
CONTAINS MANY BENEFICIAL MINERALS
Consuming organic cacao can replenish minerals vital to our body that many of us in the western world are deficient in. For example, magnesium helps the body relax, besides iron, zinc, copper, and calcium, to name a few.
IT'S AN APHRODISIAC
Phenethylamine is a chemical that occurs in small quantities in cacao, stimulates the nervous system, and triggers the release of the pleasurable endorphins that we love.
Ceremonial cacao also activates dopamine, which is associated with sexual arousal and pleasure. It promotes the brain chemistry of feeling in love, in yourself, a partner, and in life.
