Cacao Slows Down Aging and Keeps You Healthy

Cacao – the small evergreen tree grown in South America can be considered the sweetest tree in the world since its fruit creates the most desirable delicatessen in the world.  The word “cacao” was invented by the Aztecs who were the first to prepare the cacao drink cacahuatl, which included water, cacao, vanilla, maize, chili pepper and salt. Cacao beans were considered by the Aztec’s as a sacred gift of the gods. Cacao beans were so valued that they were used as currency. When Indians traded with the Spanish conquistadors, the secret of the powerful drink became well known in Europe.  Then, Europeans started to grow the cacao trees across the European colonies. Cacao beans (like these) are used for the manufacture of cacao powder and cocoa butter, which are used in cooking, perfumery, cosmetology and even medicine.

Raw cacao also contains polyphenols, which are some of the most powerful antioxidants and have the ability to break down fat and reduce the risk of developing atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. The anti-oxidative effect of polyphenols is much stronger than that of most common antioxidants such as vitamins C and E.

Cacao beans are considered natural antidepressants due to their content of  tryptophan, phenylethylamine, anandamide and magnesium (which help the human body to produce serotonin). These substances are the reason eating chocolate makes you happy,  it relieves anxiety and depression… it also prevents fatigue.

  1. Since you follow a W.A.P. Diet then I am sure that you are aware of phytic acid and the problems it can cause. This is why most cultures soak/sprout their nuts, seeds and grains. I recently realized that Cacao is a bean or seed that needs the same treatment. Are you aware of any methods or research on soaking whole cacao to improve its qualities?

    Thank You
