Our cacao is a highly nutritious superfood with a rich, nutty and slightly bitter flavour. It is packed with blood pressure reducing flavonoids and healthy magnesium, has considerably more antioxidants than blueberries, more calcium than cow’s milk, and is one of the richest plant-based sources of iron known to man. 


In addition to being deliciously indulgent, cacao has also been historically consumed for its powerful healing and nourishing properties – first by indigenous peoples in Central America, and then spreading to Europe and around the world from the mid-1500s onwards. 


Cacao contains more antioxidants (compounds which protect cells from damage from a variety of stressors) than most foods, and there has been a growing body of scientific research linking cacao consumption to better cardiovascular health and significantly lower risks of heart disease. Cacao consumption also reduces levels of inflammation measured by serum C-reactive protein. 


High intake of a traditional cacao beverage in the Kuna people of the San Blas islands of Panama has been linked to a significantly lower incidence of hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke and cancer than mainland Panamanians. Another 2006 cohort study of 470 Dutch men free of cardiovascular disease and diabetes showed that cacao consumption was associated with significantly lower cardiovascular and all-cause mortality. Those that consumed the most cacao (more than 2.3g per day) had 50% lower rates of all-cause mortality and cardiovascular disease. 


Cacao can also reduce risks for diabetes, protect nerves from injury and inflammation and have beneficial effects on satiety, cognitive function, and mood. A 2009 study showed that elderly men consuming chocolate felt less lonely and depressed and happier than men preferring other types of candy. There is promising research linking cacao to neuroprotective effects. Preliminary results suggest that it can protect neurons from injury, ease inflammation in nervous tissue, and increase blood flow in the brain. One of the key antioxidant compounds found in cacao, epicatechin, is also involved in the processes of formation of long-term memory.
