Last year, Dan and I have been posting, this is the time to get ready for food and remedies that
heal; alchemy of herbs.
Today blogging on the herb; CACAO and the benefits.
It’s amazing what and how cacao can help keep your body healthy?
By the time cacao makes it to our grocery store shelves in the form of chocolate, it’s hard to imagine that the main ingredients come from a plant.
Yet for thousands of years, humans have cultivated the cacao tree, continually fine-tuning the process of turning the interior beans into the many decadent and smooth chocolate creations of today.
Most people consume chocolate because it tastes good, but high-quality cacao products have powerful positive effects on cardiovascular function, athletic endurance and cognitive function.
