This Is Why Raw Cacao Is The Secret To More Energy

Raw Cacao - The Superfood For More Energy

Yawning is contagious.

One person yawns in a room and soon the whole room is roaring with yawns. Even fake yawns can persuade almost anyone to yawn with you. I tried this with my cat once and it worked on him too.

Aside from the actual science that is probably behind this phenomenon, the fact of the matter is that everyone is tired. And we all have different methods of coping with tiredness. One of the most common ways is with energy drinks. Not the healthiest of routes, for many reasons. 

So how can you get more energy and quit yawning without reaching for a RockStar or your 5th cup of coffee? 

The answer is Raw Cacao. 

    What Is Raw Cacao?

    Raw cacao comes from the seeds (usually referred to as beans) of the cacao fruit native to South America. Thousands of years ago the indigenous people used to crush the cacao beans into water to make a frothy remedying drink.

    The cacao that's most common today is cocoa powder that you can get in any grocery store. But the difference between cocoa powder and raw cacao is that cocoa powder is made from roasted cocoa beans. Although this seems like a minor difference, roasting the cacao actually destroys the majority of the nutrients, while raw cacao keeps them pure and untampered with. 

    Raw cacao is a strong antioxidant and contains loads of vitamin C, magnesium and iron. Raw cacao is also great for cardiovascular health, is a good source of dietary fiber, helps enhance your mood and gives you energy.  

      How Can Raw Cacao Increase Energy Levels?

      • Feel-Good Endorphins. You know the "runner's high" feeling you get after a good run? When you feel excited, happy and like you could conquer the world? You get that feeling because of the endorphins that are released while you're running. Raw cacao powder actually triggers the release of these same endorphins, which can give you mental energy and enhance your mood.
      • Energy From Blood To Brain To Body. With the abilities raw cacao has in the cardiovascular department, it can help increase your energy levels by improving the blood flow to your brain. 
      • Much Needed Magnesium. Feeling fatigued, anxious, irritable or weak? Chances are you're deficient in magnesium. In fact, it's one of the most common minerals to be deficient in! Lucky for you raw cacao is one of the best sources for this vital mineral. Raw cacao will get you your daily dose of magnesium and reward you with the boost of energy you've been looking for! 
      • Naturally Prevents Depression. Even small quantities of raw cacao can stimulate the brain to release anandamine, serotonin and phenylethylamine, which are all neurotransmitters that activate positive emotions. The phenylethylamine has an added benefit, which is to assist the brain in being alert and focused.

        The Best Way To Consume Raw Cacao

        So you've tossed your coffee and energy drinks, you're excited to see these benefits put to practice in your own life and you're on the search for some raw cacao. Look no further! What you're looking for is Cacao Bliss
