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.
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.
