The magical wonders of cacao
We already wrote an in-depth blog post all about the history and the amazing benefits of cacao. Cacao is a superfood, meaning cacao is one of Mama Gaia’s most nutritious foods, and in the Mayan and Aztec tradition, cacao was believed to have been discovered by the gods, and given to the people.
This magical superfood is anti-inflammatory, and it is widely believed that cacao can boost your mood and relieve depressive symptoms. Cacao is also an amazing source for magnesium which, among other things, can help alleviate period cramps. Cacao also promotes a healthy digestion, and it can reduce the risk of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Because cacao is packed with flavonoids, cacao has been shown to help lower blood pressure, improve blood flow to the brain and help prevent blood clots. The flavonoids also help reduce inflammation in the body, which may lower the risk of some cancers, diabetes, arthritis, depression, and Alzheimer’s disease. This ancient superfood is also known for boosting focus and cognitive functions. In general, cacao is an excellent source of iron, protein, magnesium, potassium, and fiber. No wonder the Mayan and Aztec believed cacao was given to them by the gods!
Feel balanced and calm with ashwagandha
Ashwagandha is an ancient, ayurvedic herb, and if you have ever been to India (where Ayurveda has its roots) you will most likely have come across this herb. The herb has been used for more than 3,000 years. The name Ashwagandha is Sanskrit for smell of the horse.
Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, meaning it can help your body manage stress. But that is not all ashwagandha is known for. In a nutshell ashwagandha balances and calms a busy body and mind, and it helps keep you grounded in a world that is constantly moving and shifting.
This ancient, ayurvedic herb has a myriad of other health benefits. The herb may reduce cortisol levels. Cortisol is known as the stress hormone, and therefore ashwagandha may reduce stress and anxiety. Ashwagandha may also improve brain function, including memory, and it may reduce inflammation and blood sugar levels. This powerful herb is also believed to increase muscle mass and strength.
Our Chocolate Chakra is also filled with wholegrain oats, which is a wonderful source of fiber, banana, apple, pea protein, which is rich in iron, psyllium husk, which does wonders for the digestion, and hemp protein, which is rich in minerals and antioxidants.
Containing 30 vitamins and minerals, 9 essential amino acids, 8 g plant protein per serving, and 6 g fiber per serving, our Chocolate Chakra Plantshake is your new go-to choice when life gets busy. Not only will the shake leave you feeling full and vibrant; it will help balance your stress levels and help you stay grounded which we could probably all use a little helping hand every now and then.
