Finally we're telling you what you've been wanting to hear your whole lives… chocolate is good for you! That's right, chocolate in its raw state is in fact very healthy for you; it's a superfood packed with the power of antioxidants. Chocolate in its RAW state - unheated, no trans fats, no sugars and no dairy - is known as cacao, and it's a wonderfully healthy treat with the deliciously decadent taste of dark chocolate.

All chocolate comes from cacao beans - the seeds of the cacao fruit - which grows on a jungle tree. Botanically, cacao is truly a nut. Cacao beans taste like dark chocolate, because they are dark chocolate!

The nourishing & healing powers of raw cacao beans:

  • Magnesium:  Magnesium is the primarily mineral missing when heart problems occur. Magnesium increases the overall vigor of the heart muscle. This mineral also decreases blood coagulation thus lowering blood pressure and helping the heart pump more effectively. Cacao, of course, is a fantastic food source of heart-supporting magnesium.
  • Antioxidants:  According to research cited in The New York Times, fresh cacao beans are super-rich in antioxidant flavonols. Cacao beans contain 10,000 milligrams (10 grams) per 100 grams of flavonol antioxidants. This is a whopping 10% antioxidant concentration level! This makes cacao one of the richest sources of antioxidants of any food.
  • Anti-depressant Properties: Cacao is a great source of serotonin, dopamine, and phenylethylamine, three well-studied neurotransmitters, which help alleviate depression and are associated with feelings of well being. Cacao contains monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAO Inhibitors) that improve our mood because they allow serotonin and dopamine to remain in the bloodstream longer without being broken down. Cacao contains anandamide which delivers blissful feelings. Cacao also contains B vitamins, which are associated with brain health. Cacao contains significant quantities of the amino acid tryptophan which is yet another powerful mood-enhancing nutrient. All this makes cacao a natural Anti-depressant!
  • Lose weight, eat chocolate! Anyone who eats chocolate knows that it diminishes appetite. There is evidence indicating MAOIs also diminish appetite. There is actually no scientific evedince to implicate chocolate consumption with obesity. In fact the reverse seems to be the case. Eating cacao helps one to loose weight by allowing you to eat less.


Cacao Beans have a strong dark bitter chocolate flavour. You can eat them whole - plain or dipped into raw honey. They can be ground into a rich dark powder using a coffee grinder to make raw desserts of all kinds. Blend them into your favourite smoothies or and them to a trail/snack mix with Goji berries and raisins. The skins are edible so you don't need to peel them first.

The recommended daily intake is 5 to 20 whole beans.
