All stages of the journey, from harvesting to grounding, are done with mindful intention and earnestness to yield a product of the highest quality and strength.
We can only consider Cacao as a “superfood” when discussing it in this particular context, as it provides maximum nutrition for minimal calories. When in its purest form, Cacao provides a wealth of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Magnesium – Cacao is one of the most abundant sources of magnesium in the world. Having adequate amounts of magnesium can lead to stronger bones and teeth, a balanced metabolism of carbohydrates and glucose, and a healthy heart.. Magnesium also feeds our brain and relaxes our muscles.
Antioxidants – Cacao is packed with antioxidants that guard the body against too many free radicals and drop inflammation.
Flavanols – Cacao has a high content of flavanols, which have been found to help improve blood flow by relaxing blood vessels which leads to lower blood pressure.
Potassium – Cacao contains potassium which is known as a powerful mineral which also helps in lowering blood pressure, enhancing cardiovascular and nerve function and balancing of the body’s fluid levels.
2. Creativity, Cognition, Clarity, and Concentration
Ceremonial Cacao not only wakes you up and helps keep you stimulated it does it without you feeling jittery and without the crash.
Cacao does have a small amount of caffeine but it is the Theobromine that gives the long-lasting effect of heightened mental agility. awareness and focus. Theobromine is a cardiovascular stimulant which is almost exclusively found in Cacao and aids in boosting energy levels for extended periods.
With its high flavanol content, Cacao has been found to significantly increase blood flow to the brain as shown by research. (Studies published by The National Center for Biotechnology), hence improved cognitive performance, memory, and increased creativity. Also, Phylathelynamine contained in Cacao helps to provide heightened focus, attention, goal-directed behaviour, and an increase in task completion!
3. Elevated Emotions and Soaring Spirits
Phylathelynamine, or PEA for short, is known as a “love chemical” as it stimulates brain chemistry associated with the wonderful feelings we experience when in love. With elevated PEA levels, the brain receptors receive these molecules rather than absorbing dopamine, in turn, this leaves more dopamine in the brain. With higher dopamine levels we feel a boost in our mood and our spirit feels lifted. PEA, which is abundant in pure ceremonial Cacao has gained the nickname “chocolate amphetamine!”
Anandamide, naturally present in Cacao is known as the “bliss molecule!” Anandamide, a naturally occurring cannabinoid produced by our body is a feel-good chemical and creates a feeling of mild euphoria normally experienced when the body releases endorphins.

For centuries the Cacao plant has been cultivated and shared throughout the world. Every era and culture has found a relation to its unique magic and medicinal uses.
Research by archaeology has found that throughout history, Cacao has had a significant importance on cultures in South America, Mesoamerica, Maya, Aztecs, and Toltecs.

Myths of the indigenous tell us that Cacao came from the rainforest to open people’s hearts and restore the state of harmony whenever the balance between nature and humans was threatened.
Today, ceremonial Cacao is used as a facilitator of inner work and each person has a unique experience.
