Raw Cacoa

I'm a huge advocate of dark chocolate, and after listening to a lecture by David Wolfe from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I'm even more of one!" Cacao (Raw Chocolate) — The seed/nut of a fruit of an Amazonian tree, cacao is the highest antioxidant food on the planet, the #1 source of antioxidants, magnesium, iron, manganese, and chromium and is also extremely high in PEA, theobromine (cardiovascular support), and anandamide ("bliss chemical"). Raw Chocolate improves cardiovascular health, builds strong bones, is a natural aphrodisiac, elevates your mood and energy, and increases longevity." This doesn't mean the more we have the more benefit we will receive. It is high in fat and a little goes a long way, so a couple small pieces, not a couple bars! It's also Raw Chocolate that has these benefits. Try putting a tsp or 2 of raw cacao powder or nibs in your smoothie. When added with berries, it greatly increases the antioxidant content, and leaves you feeling on top of the world!
