Raw Cacao Powder: A Superfood Rich in Nutrients
Cacao powder is a superfood that is rich in nutrients and has many health benefits. Our organic cacao powder is non-alkalized and sourced from Peru, where the raw cacao beans are slowly fermented to bring out their rich flavor and then sun-dried, instead of roasted, to retain all of their valuable nutrients.
Cacao powder is ideal for wholesome, natural recipes, and it’s a great addition to a variety of desserts and beverages, including hot chocolate and ice cream. Raw cacao has naturally occurring polyphenols and flavanols, making it a true superfood!
Health Benefits of Raw Cacao Powder
Raw cacao powder is loaded with antioxidants that can help protect your cells from damage. Antioxidants are important because they help reduce inflammation and the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Raw cacao powder is also a good source of fiber, iron, magnesium, and calcium. Fiber helps promote digestive health, while iron helps transport oxygen to your cells. Magnesium is essential for energy production and calcium helps build strong bones and teeth.
In addition to its many nutritional benefits, raw cacao powder has also been shown to improve cognitive function and lower blood pressure. One study showed that people who consumed high levels of flavanols (which are found in abundance in raw cacao powder) had better memory and thinking skills than those who did not consume flavanols. Another study showed that people who consumed raw cacao powder had lower blood pressure than those who did not consume raw cacao powder.
Raw cacao powder is a superfood that is rich in nutrients and has many health benefits. If you are looking for a healthy way to enjoy the intense flavor of dark chocolate, then NOW Real Food® Organic Raw Cacao Powder is the perfect product for you!
