  1. Contains the mood booster, anandamide β€” known as at the bliss molecule, which gives you a feeling of euphoria.

  2. Anti-inflammatory and heart protective antioxidant. Raw cacao in chocolate can reduce the risk of stroke and help improve blood circulation.Β 

  3. Has the same polyphenol antioxidants as green tea and red wine. Next time you eat raw cacao chocolate for dessert, pair it with a nice glass of red wine or hot green tea. These anthocyanins (found in red wine) can protect your cells from premature destruction and make you feel younger and healthier!

  4. Many studies show that the benefits of raw cacao are found to be decreased blood pressure.
