Cacao

This powerful superfood originates from the foothills of Andes. The Incas considered cocoa to be the “drink of Gods”. Theobroma cacao, which is the proper name for raw cocoa is made up of the Greek words Theo (God) and broma (drink). There are many benefits of cocoa but the reasons why we included it in our  product are the fact that it can make you happy and act as an aphrodisiac. It contains anandamide,  which supports a good mood, also known as the “bliss molecule”, plus it can boost the “feel good” brain chemical: serotonin. Finally, it is high in phenethylamine, which can trigger the release of endorphins, similar to those released during sexual activity or when you fall in love. These are all very good reasons to eat raw  cocoa.
