Ceremonial Cacao 50g
50g Bliss inducing, Heart warming, Soul nourishing Cacao <3
De-Vine Spirit’s Criollo Ceremonial Grade Cacao is ethically and lovingly grown, harvested and fermented from ancient Cacao gardens in Peru. This is a taster bag of ‘ground’ pure Ceremonial Cacao that will make 2x heart nourishing drinks at ‘high meditation dose’, or you can add just 10g or so into another drink (such as Cacao powder) for a homeopathic dose of Ceremonial Cacao.
Cacao comes from the Theobroma tree, which literally translates to ‘food of the Gods’. It is the unprocessed chocolate super-food derived from the cacao beans that live inside of large golden, red, green or sometimes brown pods of this fruit tree. Cacao is the extract from raw, cold-pressed un-roasted cacao beans that have been dried in the sun to keep the living enzymes intact. The cacao butter is removed to make the Cacao powder and Nibs you can find today in wholefood shops. Ceremonial grade Cacao however, is the ‘whole’ bean with all of its goodness, cacao butter, and medicinal properties intact. Cacao is found growing in both Central and South America.
There are multiple health benefits to consuming raw cacao (which is more commonly found as powder or nibs), but when partaking in the ‘whole’ unprocessed Ceremonial grade Cacao there are spiritual and emotional benefits to be gained as well.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Cacao beans are rich in a number of essential minerals, including magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, potassium and manganese. Cacao also has more antioxidant flavonoids than any food tested so far, including blueberries, red wine, and black and green teas. In fact, it has up to four times the quantity of antioxidants found in green tea. Cacao raises the level of serotonin in the brain; thus acting as an anti-depressant, also helping to reduce PMS symptoms, and promoting a sense of well-being. Cacao is a great source of serotonin, dopamine, anandamide and phenylethylamine (PEA), four well-studied neurotransmitters, which are associated with feelings of well being and help alleviate depression.
Both PEA and anandamide (the bliss chemical) are found in abundance in the brains of happy people and are particularly released when we are feeling happy. Both of these neurotransmitters are present in raw cacao in large enough quantities to affect the brain and lift our moods
