It’s Not the End of the World!
The last day of the Mayan calendar has come & gone, and you’re still here…Now what?
Whatever your vision is for the future, you’ll need your health to fulfill it. One of the most incredible superfoods on Earth was celebrated by the Mayans long ago. It helped give them energy, mental alertness, strong bones, and a healthy immune system.
That ancient superfood is cacao. Yes, chocolate is actually a health food, but we’re not talking about sugary candy bars here. When cacao beans are roasted, processed, and mixed with dairy products and refined sugar, the key nutritional qualities are lost and it ends up being just another junk food. The secrets to chocolate’s incredible health benefits are unlocked when it is eaten in its raw, unheated state.
What Makes Cacao So Special?
Raw cacao is bursting with antioxidants, magnesium, and phenylethylamine (PEA), which is the pleasure chemical found in the brains of people in love—no wonder people are so attracted to chocolate! Cacao is also a natural source of iron, and omega-6 fatty acids which play an important role in heart health and brain function, not to mention trace minerals such as manganese, zinc, chromium, and copper. Cacao contains about 1% theobromine, which is a chemical relative of caffeine, but a healthier stimulant in that is does not affect the nervous system. Rather, it dilates the cardiovascular system, making the heart’s job easier.
