Ingredients: Hawaii grown, organic, raw cacao beans
Raw Cacao is high in antioxidants with an ORAC score of 98,000 per 100g. (ORAC stands for oxygen radical absorbance capacity.) ORAC scores measure the ability of antioxidants to absorb/ remove free radicals which cause cell and tissue damage and may lead to diseases such as cancer or premature aging. For more on free radicals and why you want to reduce them check out our Additional Information page. Raw Cacao contains 7.3mg per 100g of iron making it the best plant based source of iron. Iron in cacao (like all plant based iron) is non-heme, so to get the maximum benefits you'll want to combine the cacao with any form of vitamin C. Raw Cacao is also one of the highest plant-based sources of magnesium. Magnesium is important for heart health and helps to turn glucose into energy. Raw Cacao contains serotonin, tryptophan, tyrosine and phenylethylamine. These neurotransmitters are associated with feelings of happiness and can alleviate depression.
