On the lead up to Christmas, there is temptation everywhere. I have so many clients with a sweet tooth, and chocolate is everywhere you look this time of year!
I may just have the answer for you…
Cacao is the purest, most natural form of chocolate, rich in antioxidants and flavonoids, this plant-based delight can benefit us in so many ways:
1. High in Protein
Helping to support muscle strength and repair -pre- and post-workouts.
2. Magnesium Rich
This helps support the nervous system and helps you to feel calm and in control.
3. High in Fibre
Helping weight management and increase the body’s natural enzymes. This supports your bodies nutrient absorption which is key when it comes to great health!
4. Lowers Stress & Anxiety
Eating dark chocolate can help reduce anxiety and relieve symptoms of depression. Containing both magnesium and potassium, these are essential nutrients for the optimum functioning of your feel-good hormones.
5. Full of Potassium
Essential for healthy heart function. This in turn supports the circulatory system which is responsible for transporting nutrients, water and oxygen to every cell through arteries, blood vessels and capillaries. Good blood flow is needed for the functioning of the brain, skin, eyes, liver, immune system, digestive system, and daily energy.
6. Feel Good
Cacao helps to lift natural serotonin and endorphins – therefore making you feel happier!
7. Blood Pressure Reduction
Cacao can significantly reduce your blood pressure when included daily in your regime.
8. Increases brain power – This is because of the high nutrient content and its ability to improve blood flow.
Because of the high number of flavonoids and antioxidants, Cacao can help reduce symptoms of dementia and memory loss.
As an added bonus it can also help to keep your skin looking fresh. You can even make a scrub from the powder which gives your skin a fresh youthful glow!
All-natural, delicious goodness!
