Health & Beauty from within... Our Organic Cacao Powder is rich in many vitamins and minerals that are important for your health and wellbeing. For example:
Reducing Tiredness... Iron and Magnesium in Cacao powder contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Flatter Tummies & Weight Loss... Cacao powder can help as part of your diet plan, because it's high in fibre. High fibre foods help you to feel fuller for longer, so you're less inclined to over-eat.
According to the NHS website, "Fibre has many health benefits. It can help prevent heart disease, diabetes, weight gain, some cancers, and improve digestive health".
However, many of us don't get enough fibre. The UK average is just 14g a day, and you should aim for at least 18g a day. Cacao powder contributes to your recommended daily fibre intake, and 10g of Cacao powder will provide about 3.2g of fibre.
Exercise & Working Out… Cacao powder's high in Protein and Protein contributes to the maintenance and growth of muscle mass, and the maintenance of normal bones. Calcium contributes to normal muscle function.
Digestive Health… Calcium in Cacao powder contributes to the normal functioning of digestive enzymes, and Magnesium to normal energy-yielding metabolism, and normal protein synthesis too.
Mental Health... Magnesium contributes to normal psychological function. Iron to normal cognitive function, and Calcium to normal neurotransmission in the brain.
Physical Health... Magnesium contributes to the normal function of the nervous system, and Iron to the normal function of the immune system.
Iron contributes to normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin, and Calcium to normal blood clotting. Calcium and Magnesium contribute to the maintenance of normal teeth, and to normal muscle function.
Suggested Use: Use Organic Cacao powder in place of your normal chocolate powder. For a delicious hot drink, mix with water or milk (soya or almond), or add any breakfast cereal. Can be blened into smoothies, and used to make your own chocolate.
