Raw cacao, also known as raw chocolate or cocoa, is an increasingly popular healthy alternative to regular chocolate. It is an appetite suppressant so it can help in losing weight. It makes you feel good too since it’s a natural anti-depressant. Raw chocolate is also great in raw puddings (see recipe below) or makes a satisfying snack.

Cacao beans contain over 300 chemically identifiable compounds making it one of the most complex food substances on Earth! Here are some of its most important and powerful components:



  • Magnesium: Magnesium helps to promote the health of the heart muscle and also reduces blood coagulation, therefore lowering blood pressure. Cacao is loaded with Magnesium.

  • Antioxidants: Cacao beans are rich in antioxidant flavonols. Cacao beans contain a staggering 10% antioxidant concentration level! Cacao is one of the richest sources of antioxidants of any food.

  • Phenylethylamine (PEA): PEA is a chemical in cacao that helps us stay alert. Higher PEA levels occur when we are fascinated or captivated by something and are abundant in the brains of happy people. Cacao has been found to contain up to 2.2% phenylethylamine (PEA).

  • Anandamide (The Bliss Chemical): Cacao has been found to contain a significant amount of a neurotransmitter called anandamide. Anandamide is known as "the bliss chemical" because when it is released it makes us feel great.

  • Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAO Inhibitors): When consumed, MAO inhibitors allow more serotonin and other neurotransmitters such as anandamide and dopamine be released. MAO inhibitors, according to Dr. Gabriel Cousens facilitate rejuvenation and youthening.
