Some studies suggest that Cacao may have health benefits, possibly improving heart and brain health as well as overall well-being. Researchers think this is because Cacao is rich in flavanols. These compounds, which give cacao its bitter taste, also have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which could have health benefits. Pure Cacao has the higher concentration of flavanols, and in theory full of antioxidants. Some physical and mental health benefits of Cacao may include: 

  • It regulates blood pressure.  Flavanols stimulate the body to produce nitric oxide in the blood, which helps open up blood vessels and allows blood to flow more freely.
  • Boosts “good cholesterol”.  Cocoa contains chemicals called polyphenols, which are believed to block the absorption of cholesterol and may improve “good” cholesterol levels.
  • Keeps your heart healthy.  All these effects on blood pressure and cholesterol can reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.
  • Makes you feel good.  Eating Cacao releases serotonin and endorphins – feel-good hormones in the brain.
  • Improves brain health.  The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of flavanols was shown to improve brain blood flow, oxygen levels and nerve function.
  • Improves cognitive function.  Studies suggest that people who regularly drink pure Cacao may have less memory decline.

Everything in excess may be harmful.

Cacao may have health benefits, but it's important to remember that it's best taken in moderation.

Stay on the safe side and start by taking small amounts, between 4-8 to 13 grs, increasing slowly and gradually as you get used to it and track the effects of it on you. Start by taking it once in a while and increase regularity gradually as well.


Depending on person´s special health conditions (like pregnancy, taking anti-depressants, heart problems , etc.) , please consult with your doctor in case of doubt.
