CACAO – Literally meaning ‘Food of the Gods’, this amazing bean was once used as currency in Mexico, before we had paper money. It has around 621 anti-oxidants, whereas blueberries have around 22. Yep this little bean is loaded with agents that fight oxidative stress – what makes up sick and age. It’s also one of the highest sources of magnesium so really good for aching, tight and sore muscles, heart health, sleeplessness, anxiety or a twitching eye. It’s also packed with fibre so it’s lovely to help elimination thereby aiding bowel health, curb sugar cravings and decrease an insatiable appetite.
Add a teaspoon or so to your smoothie, and watch the little spring it puts in your step.
