Hello Cacao Lovers,
our dear community consists of 93% women. But why should that be? We would like to change that. You probably also know men with whom you have the feeling that cacao would do them good. But if you come at them with the words "ceremony", "ritual" or "meditation", they turn up their noses and run away. We were wondering how we could still reach them so that they could give Cacao a chance and receive the wonderful gifts. Axel wrote a text about this, of course with a wink. :-) If you like it, we would be happy if you forward it to the men in your environment.
Is cacao such a women's drink?
If increased well-being and increased concentration and performance and health care in a pleasant way are only women's issues, then yes. Of course, we men can also make good use of the power of cacao.
10 hard facts about the superfood cacao
We have 10 hard facts about the superfood for you, why you should start drinking cacao.
1. The better coffee alternative
Forget the energy waste after drinking coffee. The theobromine contained in cacao invigorates you in a natural and healthy way, while the high is gentler and lasts longer than caffeine.
Increased oxidative degradation in the body means physical stress that can cause cancer and inflammation. The antioxidants contained in cacao prevent this.
The unsaturated fatty acid anandamide affects the part of the brain that is responsible for the feeling of happiness and pleasure. Cacao has been known as an aphrodisiac since time immemorial. In combination with the performance-enhancing effect - cacao was drunk by the warriors of the indigenous tribes as a tonic and for endurance... you get it 😉
They promote brain health and activity, address the learning center in the brain, sharpen perception and focus, and preserve cognitive abilities.
Hardly any other food contains more magnesium than cacao. Magnesium promotes heart health, has a muscle-relaxing and antispasmodic effect, supports bone formation and the regulation of metabolism.
Cacao also contains a considerable amount of iron, which is important for blood formation.
The very high calcium content is great for teeth, bones, muscles and blood clotting.
First studies at universities in Maastricht, Düsseldorf and Cologne show: Cacao is better than energy drinks after intensive sports endurance sessions than water and many of the commercially available sports drinks.
