Cacao – The SUPERFOOD and more…
 
 
What makes Cholaca one of the absolute BEST superfoods?  
 
It’s all about the FLAVONOIDS. Flavanols or flavonoids are plant compounds with potent antioxidant properties. Cacao beans contain large amounts of flavanols that help with the ability to maintain healthy blood pressure, promote blood flow, and promote heart health.
 
Fun Facts:
 
– Cholaca contains more flavanols than many fruit juices
 
– Flavonoids encourage our bodies to produce nitric oxide which helps to widen blood vessels
 
– High levels of antioxidants in Cholaca prevent free radical damage and oxidation of LDL cholesterol in arteries, which is the major cause of cardiovascular disease.
 
– The iron in Cholaca builds blood and helps to transport oxygen, potassium, copper, zinc, manganese and selenium throughout the body.
 
– The cocoa butter in Cholaca contains high levels of oleic acid, a heart healthy mono-unsaturated fat that is also found in olive oil.
 
Can Cholaca make you Smarter?!
 
A tongue-in-cheek paper published in the New England Journal of Medicine insisted that Chocolate in fact DOES make you more clever.
A researcher called Franz ­Messerli of Colombia University in New York took the number of Nobel Prize ­winners in a country as an indicator of national intelligence and correlated it with that nation’s chocolate consumption. Switzerland came out on top, with the highest chocolate consumption per head and also the highest number of Nobel ­laureates per capita. At the other end of the scale was China, which scored low on both counts.
“When you correlate the two – the chocolate consumption with the number of Nobel prize ­laureates per capita – there is an incredibly close ­relationship,” he said.  For the full article from Franz click here. 
 
 
 
True or False: Cholaca is an Aphrodisiac?
 
Cholaca contains a mood boosting chemical known as phenylethylamine (PEA) that is also often produced in the brain when a person is in love. The hormones it releases can then trigger feelings of euphoria. That’s why some people swear by chocolate when they’re depressed. It causes the pulse to quicken and therefore attributes to feeling focused and alert. It’s also known as the aphrodisiac in chocolate.
 
Drink Cholaca and Slim Down! 
 
 Cholaca can help to boost the metabolism and provides a natural energy stimulant known as theobromine to keep your energy high with zero crash.  A recent study proved that adults who ate chocolate frequently had a lower body mass index than those who didn’t. The link was still there even when other factors, such as how much exercise people took, were taken into account.  Buy Will Clower’s book and learn more about losing weight with chocolate here.
 
Can Cholaca make you more Beautiful?
DIY Cholaca Face Mask
 
Cacao – also referred to as the “beauty bean” as scientists say cacao boosts skin by increasing blood flow and improving skin density and hydration. The antioxidants in Cholaca help to reduce free-radical damage that can come from pollution, sunburn, cigarette smoke and ­alcohol. Raw cacao powder is often used as a main ingredient in many facial treatments and products.  Try our DIY Cholaca Face Mask above.
