Benefits of cocoa powder

The Cocoa tree also called cacao tree, gives out 3 different foods:

  • Liquor
  • Butter
  • Cocoa (powdered cacao)

The cocoa or cacao powder is harvested from the fruit of the tree. The seeds are dried, grounded and give as a result the cocoa powder we all know.

Its primary benefits are:

1. Rich in antioxidants, having as many as red wine and green tea.

2. It is anti-stress, thanks to Theobromine, which naturally stimulates our central nervous system.

3. Regulates cholesterol levels.

4. Natural mood regulator, thanks to anandamide.

5. Against diseases, because it has antioxidants, it helps against cellular oxidation, fighting cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, and many other diseases.

6. Regulates blood pressure, since it has flavonoids, it stimulates the production of nitric oxide, which relaxes blood vessels.

7. It has an aphrodisiac effect, which also occurs in times of feeling "happiness" after eating chocolate, because of its phenylethylamine content.

8. It helps memory, thanks to the presence of flavonoids (the same ones that help blood pressure).

Our purpose is to deliver food that nourishes and heals us from the inside-out. This is why to make Wally Nuts Hazelnut-Cacao paste, we use organic and pure cocoa powder. Thus, enhancing the best of the ingredients, we use.
