Organic Cacao Nibs – Raw
Cacao is known as the ‘food of the gods’ in South America. It is an incredibly nutritious superfood, high in antioxidants and minerals. It has been attributed with increasing mental focus and awareness and is said to help make you happy because of the anandamide and phenylethylamine it contains.
Ingredients: 100% Cacao nibs
Country of Origin: Peru
Botanical Name: Theobroma cacao
The cacao bean comes from pods produced by the cacao tree, which grows naturally in South America, Africa, and The Caribbean. Cacao nibs come from the beans, which have been peeled and broken into small fragments.
“Every study on cacao is pointing to the same conclusion: there is something in cacao that is really good for us. That something is the raw cacao bean, the nut that all chocolate is made from. The cacao bean has always been and will always be Nature’s #1 weight loss and high-energy food. Cacao beans are probably the best-kept secret in the entire history of food.”— David Wolfe, co-author of Naked Chocolate
Possible benefits of cacao nibs
Cacao is high in the beauty mineral sulphur. Sulphur builds strong nails, hair, shiny skin, detoxifies the liver and supports a healthy pancreas. Anecdotal reports indicate that cacao detoxifies mercury because it is so high in sulphur.
