It’s Valentines Day tomorrow and quality chocolate

is the perfect way to celebrate.


Chocolate made from raw cacao is particularly healthy, in fact, raw cacao is a superfood!

Long before Willie Wonka came around, chocolate was known among the ancient Maya as the “food of the gods”.  Chocolate, or cacao, can act as a powerful aphrodisiac that awakens the “love hormones” in the body, such as serotonin and dopamine.    It has the power to provide mental clarity, to move you from your head to your heart, and to produce a gentle euphoria.

The ancient Mayas used cacao, the raw form of cocoa, rather than processed chocolate.  But even in its processed form chocolate stills holds the healthful properties the Mayans loved.


With all this going for it, it makes sense to choose your chocolate wisely!


Some health benefits of cacoa are:

  • Increases blood flow
  • Contains powerful antioxidants, up to 40 times more than blueberries, which absorb free radicals
  • Boasts the highest plant-based source of iron—twice that of spinach
  • Full of magnesium for a healthy heart and brain
  • Acts as a natural mood elevator and antidepressant
  • Contains more calcium than cow’s milk per 100g
