Cacao is the natural and unprocessed seed of the Theobroma cacao tree. It contains flavonoids which can help to reduce inflammation throughout the body. It is also packed with antioxidants. The nutrients found in cacao have also been shown to help lower blood pressure, improve blood flow to the brain and heart, and aid in preventing blood clots. Theobromine is an alkaloid responsible for the stimulating effects of cacao. It is a heart stimulant, dilates blood vessels and reduces blood pressure. The flavonoids in cacao may help increase insulin sensitivity, reducing the risk of diabetes.

Cacao is also rich in magnesium which is essential for many biochemical reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation.

Furthermore, Cacao is rich in sulfur which may help ease the effects of several skin disorders, including acne, psoriasis, warts, dandruff and eczema. It is also associated with strong nails, shiny hair and overall liver and pancreatic health.

Finally, Cacao may reduce your appetite by helping you better attune to your body’s hunger signals. This is said to be because the monoamine oxidase enzyme inhibitors found in cacao are linked to weight loss and maintenance.

Ingredients
Organic Cacao paste, Organic Cacao butter, Organic Ceylon Cinnamon, Turmeric, Cayenne pepper, Vanilla

Directions for use
Cacao taken in this way can be used to replace your morning coffee as it is also a stimulant but not as hard hitting on the nervous system as caffeine. 

To prepare
Break the cacao disk into smaller pieces and add to a cup. Add hot but not boiling water and/or hot plant based milk as well as the remaining ingredients and stir vigorously. Alternatively add everything to a blender or shaker for a more foamy drink. Add honey or a natural sweetener of your choice. Bear in mind that adjusting to the bitterness which is part of this medicine is recommended. The bitter taste burns off toxins and allows us greater capacity for the bitter experiences in life so we may appreciate the sweetness that much more when it comes around. 

Sit in a quiet space and enjoy as part of your morning ritual to centre and still your mind.
