According to research and Navitas’ website, “Cacao has been consumed for its invigorating and healthy properties for generations in Mexican, Central and South American cultures. Cacao powder is one of the richest sources of immune-boosting antioxidants found in nature. It also provides important minerals including magnesium and iron. Separated from the oily cacao butter, cacao powder is also a concentrated form of healthy dietary fiber. All raw cacao products contain the unique alkaloid chemicals theobromine, phenylethylamine and anandamine that help you feel HAPPY.”
Not only is it healthy, but it is a tasty addition to any smoothie!
