Cacao Nibs are where ALL chocolate starts! Cacao nibs are the cocoa bean after it has been roasted, taken out of its husk and broken into little pieces.
– Improves cellular health (Cacao nibs have more antioxidants than other superfoods, including green tea, acai, blueberries and pomegranates. Plus they have 4x the antioxidants of dark chocolate).
-Provides feel-good chemicals (Cacao nibs prompt the brain to release serotonin which is a feel-good hormone, anandamide, an amino acid often referred to as the “bliss molecule,” and the compound phenylethylamine which releases endorphins)
-Protects cardiovascular system and heart (Cacao nibs contain flavonoids which thin the blood and prevent clots. Flavonoids are anti-inflammatory antioxidants that protect the heart and the arteries in your heart and brain. They help prevent heart disease, stroke, lower blood pressure and improve circulation.
-Resets metabolism (The properties in cacao nibs reduce cortisol in the bloodstream, heighten fat-burning and improve the microbial activity in the gut.)
-Rich in magnesium and potassium (eating it raises energy levels and reduces fatigue. Cacao is one of the highest natural sources of magnesium. Magnesium also fights type II diabetes and osteoporosis and naturally lowers blood pressure. Potassium has been proven to help regulate blood pressure and lower risk of heart disease, stroke, arthritis, and cancer.)
