- Dark Chocolate
Who says chocolate can't be healthy?!
We source only the finest grade organic fair-trade dark chocolate to maximize health benefits. We add no preservatives, hydrolyzed oils, corn syrups, fillers, or other questionable ingredients either.
What's makes our chocolate items so healthy? We make each one with raw organic cacao - REAL, unprocessed chocolate. Cacao is packed with cell-protecting antioxidants which help fight off free radicals and oxidative stress, and even help prevent premature aging and cancer. It also contains vital minerals such as copper, magnesium, potassium, zinc, calcium, chromium, and iron just to name a few. Other health benefits of raw cacao and dark chocolate include:
*Helps improve circulatory health - as it's shown to help reduce blood pressure, improve blood flow, have a mild anti-clotting effect and help prevent plaque formation in the arteries. *Helps manage control blood sugar levels - as it's low glycemic (meaning that it does not cause unhealthy spikes in blood sugar) and packed with flavonoids which helps to reduce insulin resistance.
*Good for your brain - as it contains several chemical compounds like Phenylethylamine or PEA (a feel-good chemical that encourages your brain to release endorphins) and Theobromine (a mild natural stimulant and molecular “cousin” of caffeine that does not strongly stimulate the central nervous system).
*Helps manage cholesterol levels - as dark chocolate has been shown to be highly protective against the oxidation of LDL cholesterol while increasing HDL cholesterol as well.
It's also worth noting that all of our chocolate products contain NO milk or dairy products whatsoever - making them completely safe for people who have dairy sensitivities. When dairy ingredients are added to chocolate, they can inhibit our body's absorption of the beneficial flavanols and antioxidants naturally found in cacao. Plus it adds to the fat content. Our dairy-free dark chocolate contains an excellent fatty acid profile, as they are mostly saturated and monounsaturated, with small amounts of polyunsaturates.
So don't feel guilty eating any of our chocolate products - they're a healthy treat that everyone should enjoy!
