The Cacao (pronounced KA-COW) tree is the source of all things chocolate. Ancient Mayan and Aztecs believed that Cacao was a gift from the gods as a divine food with medicinal and aphrodisiacal properties. The scientific name Theobroma cacao literally means "food of the gods" in Greek.

Cacao is not merely a food that makes us feel happy (think bliss nutrients!), it has phenomenal amount of antioxidants and minerals that can keep us healthy too. And the healthiest form of Cacao with superfood level of nutrients is Raw Cacao. Modern science has confirmed that Raw Cacao is the most nutritionally complex food on the planet, with a wide variety of nutrients.

What is Raw Cacao? Raw Cacao refers to the raw form of chocolate/cocoa which is not processed in any way or is minimally processed, unsweetened, and is made from unroasted cacao beans. Raw cacao products (from unroasted cacao beans) retains much more of its natural nutrients and antioxidants compared to traditional regular cocoa which has been roasted.

Botanical name : Theobroma cacao L., criollo variety
Organic certifications; USDA, EU.

The criollo variety of cacao is considered a premium cacao variety- the king of cacao with the finest flavour and aroma. Nature's Superfoods is proud to bring to you 100% pure raw cacao powder made from unroasted criollo cacao beans from Peru, ensuring maximum nutrient retention at every stage. The cacao beans are lightly fermented to bring out the cocoa flavor, increase nutrient availability and reduce phytic acid content.

1. Promotes Heart & Brain Health- Raw Cacao is one of the richest whole food sources of magnesium (an essential mineral often lacking in our modern diet of processed foods). Magnesium is vital for heart & brain health, regulates high blood pressure, regulates blood sugar, helps relax muscles and is required for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body.

2. Supports Bone Health - due to Raw Cacao's high level of magnesium which enhances the absorption of calcium in our bodies.

3. Aids in Weight Management - Raw Cacao helps suppress appetite due to its coumarin content. Instead of gaining weight from eating highly processed chocolate bars (with sugar, dairy and other additives added to them), pure Raw Cacao actually helps you to control your weight.

4. Lifts Your Mood - makes you happy. Raw Cacao naturally contains high levels of bliss nutrients such as Phenylethylamine (PEA) and Anandamide. PEA also helps increase focus and alertness. Magnesium, with its many benefits mentioned above, also increases this happiness factor by balancing brain chemistry.

The trace minerals in cacao supports a good immune system, accelerates renewal of skin cells and promotes healthy hair, nails and vision.

You will feel good when you take a cacao drink. Raw cacao has bliss nutrients that improves your mood. It helps in memory and cognitive functions as well. A nice cup of warm cacao will also help you sleep better. Some may even feel that it enhances sexuality!
