Why Use Cacao Butter?

Cacao has 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries. It is also the highest plant-based source of iron. Being non-heme iron, however, it must be combined with Vitamin C in order to be absorbed. It also has more calcium than cow’s milk. Best of all, it contains mood-boosting neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine.
 

Good for

  • Antioxidants: Raw cacao rates in the top 20 on the ORAC scale (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) which is used to rate the antioxidant capacity of foods
  • Essential fatty acids: Omega-6, which supports healthy skin and nails, and Omega 9, which supports healthy blood cholesterol
  • Magnesium: Essential mineral for muscle repair and relaxation
