The fruit of the cacao tree contains small “beans” from which all chocolate is made. Cacao is incredibly nutritious – it is one of the world’s most potent sources of antioxidants and magnesium, and is filled with many other energy-boosting nutrients.
Cacao contains theobromine, providing a slow release of energy throughout the day for non-jittery natural energy.

THEOBROMINE vs. CAFFFEINE
Unlike coffee, the caffeine content in cacao is extremely low and usually insignificant. The primary compound responsible for Cacao’s energizing properties is Theobromine.
Theobromine is a cardiovascular stimulant that has less impact on the central nervous system than caffeine. It is also a vasodilator and diuretic, and relaxes the smooth muscles including those in the respiratory system.
These properties have been shown in studies to promote healthy blood pressure and relaxation.
