Cacao Nibs: Superfood that Boosts Energy and Burns Fat
Cacao, or theobroma cacao, is the source of dark, natural chocolate. It comes from the seeds of the fruit of the cacao tree. It is a minimally processed form of chocolate that maintains all the impressive nutrients that make it a superfood. Cacao nibs are the fermented, dried and crushed seed of Theobroma cacao plant. Cacao is an Amazonian Superfood and known in native language as "Yollotl Eztli," which means "heart blood."
Recent medical studies have found that eating cocoa is associated with reduced risk of coronary heart disease and stroke. The superfood is bursting with magnesium, which is important for a healthy heart and helps turn glucose into energy.
Raw organic cacao has over 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries. These antioxidants come from the plant’s surplus of flavonoids and can result in increased good cholesterol — called HDL — in the blood.
Cacao is the highest plant-based source of iron known to man. Iron is essential for healthy blood and it also aids with distributing oxygen throughout our bodies.
Cacao contains a compound called phenylethylamine (PEA). The benefits of PEA are thought to include elevated mood and increased energy. The plant also offers mood-boosting serotonin, dopamine and anandamide.
