Why raw cacao?
One of the most pharmacologically complex substances, cacao (raw chocolate) is an incredible superfood very high in antioxidants & nutrients such as magnesium (chronically deficient in western diets & key for body & mind), and is the highest naturally occurring source of chromium. It also contains copper, calcium, zinc, sulfur, iron, & phosphorus. It boosts circulation & increases nutrient absorption.
Norepinephrine - The "joy molecule," associated with feelings of elation and euphoria. Increases reaction time, awakens and alerts skeletal muscle. Lowest at night and rises in the morning, helps stimulate a feeling of alertness and arousal.
Serotonin - Creates sense of satisfaction, wellbeing, optimism, and alertness. Needed for feeling rested and awake in the morning. SSRIs work to increase available levels of serotonin as reduced levels of serotonin are associated with depression. Cacao is very high in magnesium and tryptophan, which are the precursors for serotonin.
Dopamine - Gives feelings of reward, pleasure, motivation, attention, memory, and sleep. Protects from Parkinson's and other neurological diseases.
Anandamine - Endocannabinoid that regulates overwall reward circuitry in the brain and body. From Sanskrit word "joy, bliss, delight." Known as the bliss molecule. Helps manage pain, helps balance, appetite, mood, drives neurogenesis (growth of new nerve tissue). Regulates CB1 and CB2 receptors. Cacao also has N-linoleoylethanolamine, the re-uptake inhibitor for anandamine.
Phenylethylamine (PEA) - Increases the actions of other neurotransmitters such as dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, and acetylcholine. Increases efficacy of daily activities regardless of age. Increases excitement, alertness, attention, can help give perception of time slowing down which is highly associated with the feelings from cacao and helping to relieve anxiety & feelings of being "rushed."
