Ceremonial Cacao is know for many of its incredible health promoting properties. An overview:

Ceremonial Cacao, often consumed in the form of a warm beverage made from ground, whole organic Cacao Beans, has been associated with several potential health benefits. Some of the commonly cited health benefits of ceremonial cacao include:

  • Nutritional Content: Cacao is rich in antioxidants, particularly flavonoids, which may help reduce inflammation and improve heart health.
  • Mood Enhancement: Cacao contains compounds such as phenylethylamine (PEA) and theobromine, which can promote the release of neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine, potentially improving mood and feelings of well-being.
  • Energy Boost: The natural stimulants found in cacao, including theobromine and trace amounts of caffeine (similar levels to that in a cup of decaffeinated tea), can provide a steady, uplifting energy boost without the jitteriness often associated with caffeine.
  • Improved Cognitive Function: Some studies suggest that the flavonoids in cacao may have neuroprotective effects, enhancing cognitive function and reducing the risk of cognitive decline.
  • Heart Health: The flavonoids in cacao may help improve circulation and lower blood pressure, contributing to heart health.
  • Spiritual and Emotional Benefits: Ceremonial cacao is often consumed as part of spiritual or mindfulness practices, and its consumption in a ceremonial setting may promote relaxation, introspection, and emotional healing.
  • Digestive Health: Cacao contains fiber, which can support digestive health by promoting regular bowel movements and feeding beneficial gut bacteria.
