Raw Organic Fairly Traded Cacao 

5 BENEFITS OF RAW ORGANIC CACAO

1.  Highest Amount of Antioxidants 

Raw cacao contains up to four times the antioxidants of traditional cacao powder—making it a food with the highest antioxidant value. Antioxidants are thought to be effective in helping to prevent cancer, heart disease, and stroke.

2.  Highest Plant-Based Source of Iron

On a plant-based/vegan diet and looking for iron?  The search is over!  Cacao is the highest plant-based source of iron known to man, at a whopping 7.3mg per 100g.  This compares to beef and lamb at 2.5mg, and spinach at 3.6mg.  Note the iron in cacao is non-heme (as is all plant-based iron), so to get the maximum benefits you’ll want to combine it with some vitamin C. 

3.  Full of Magnesium for a Healthy Heart & Brain

Raw organic cacao is also one of the highest plant-based sources of magnesium, the most deficient mineral in the Western world.  Magnesium is important for a healthy heart, and helps turn glucose into energy enabling your brain to work with laser-sharp clarity and focus. 

4.  More Calcium Than Cow’s Milk

Raw organic cacao has more calcium than cow’s milk would you believe, at 160mg per 100g vs only 125mg per 100ml of milk.  

5.  A Natural Mood Elevator and Anti-Depressant

Cacao is a great source of four scientifically proven bliss chemicals – serotonin, tryptophan, tyrosine and phenylethylamine.  These neurotransmitters are associated with cosy feelings of wellbeing, happiness, and can even alleviate depression.  A natural, healthy, delicious (and legal) way to get your happy buzz on.
