Cacao beans have a high quantity of flavonoids, which can be beneficial to your heart health. Flavonoids decrease bad cholesterol, increase good cholesterol and even lower blood pressure. Diabetes sufferers are often prescribed cacao, because regular consumption of flavonoids improves the strength and health of blood vessels. Unhealthy blood vessels are the leading cause of heart problems in diabetics. Cacao is also rich in Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Copper, Manganese and Zinc. Flavonoids,vitamins and minerals tend to disintegrate when cooked, but our raw protein powders never reach temperatures high enough to kill nutrients, period!
Pure cacao can be found in our Epic Protein : Chocolate Maca!
