Cacao is the most widely eaten nut in the world – yet nobody ACTUALLY eats it! Have you ever tried a cacao bean? This is the nut that all chocolate is made of. It is the raw, unrefined, natural version of chocolate. Every study on cacao has pointed to the same conclusion: its natures #1 weightloss, longevity and energy providing food! This is due to its extreme density of minerals. It is the world’s highest source of iron, magnesium, manganese, chromium and antioxidants! It is also remarkably rich in vitamin C, copper, zinc, vanadium, phosphorus and polyphenols. These minerals combined make cacao a fantastic blood builder, blood sugar stabilizer and many more extraordinary health benefits. Note that Jean Calment who lived to 122 ate over a KILO of dark chocolate a week!! So yes, chocolate is good for you. In fact, is it the best food ever!!
