Cacao PowderWilderness Poets
Wilderness Poets Cacao Powder is made from the deeply flavorful, heirloom variety, Ecuadorian Arriba Nacional cacao beans. The cacao pods are hand selected for quality beans, which are sundried then lightly fermented to bring out the rich, aromatic flavor. The beans are peeled and cold-pressed to form a paste, the bean's butter is extracted, and our nutrient-dense cacao powder is formed. No other ingredients or sugar are added. This is pure, raw, unsweetened, organic Cacao Powder. Put a spoonful into your next smoothie, chia pudding, bliss ball, or other treat and feel the power of this super food.
Cacao Science & Nutrition
Cacao, 'the food of the gods' has been used for centuries to boost energy and enhance mood. With over 300 identifiable chemical compounds, cacao remains one of the most complex and pleasurable foods on the planet. In its raw form, cacao contains anandamide (a euphoric substance), arginine (a natural aphrodisiac), and tryptophan (a natural anti-depressant). By raising the neurotransmitters in our brain, cacao promotes an overall happy feeling.
Cacao is also high in the mineral magnesium, essential for helping the heart to pump blood efficiently, building strong bones, and lowering blood pressure. Cacao is a good source of sulfur, generating healthy skin, nails and hair. Cacao contains one of the highest levels of antioxidants on the planet, exceeding that of red wine, green tea and many other exotic fruits and vegetables. Recent scientific studies have shown that cacao boosts blood flow to the heart, brain and other organs while having protective effects against heart disease. It has also been shown to be helpful in lowering blood glucose levels.*
