Cacao originates from the Mayans and Aztecs, used in ceremony by men as women and children did not have access to it.
Cacao is the raw state, it is solid and has all the goodness with nothing added. It is a superfood holding over 200 nutrients such as magnesium, zinc, iron, potassium, as well as theobromine, the compounds of anandamide and phenylethylamine, "the love chemicals" - we often give it the name "bliss".
Regularly drinking cacao can help with mood and emotion, etc
It opens the heart and connects us with love.
As well as a ceremonial drink, it can be drunk on a daily basis using a weaker amount. Devotees to daily cacao drinking create their own ritual, often journaling or meditating alongside it.
It can have side effects and people with high blood pressure and on certain anti-depressants, pregnancy and breast-feeding should check with GP before drinking.
