Cocoa Beans are the perfectly balance of nutrition in a nut. Just eat them like a regular nut. Super healthy and super delicious .
Cocoa beans have quantities of Tryptophan and Phenylethylamine, amino acid precursors to protein building, and a neurotransmitter, Anandamide (or the “Bliss” chemical. Ananda, from the Sanskrit word referred to in yogic traditions meaning bliss, joy or happiness). All contribute to the ‘feel good’, happy feeling. They also support the adrenals and help increase focus and awareness. Phenylethylamine is created naturally and released in the brain when we are “In Love”.
Tryptophan is the precursor to Serotonin; which influences moods and sleep. Neurotransmitters are electrochemical communicators to support the nervous and endocrine systems, along with emotional/mental balance.
Phenylalanine forms norepinephrine, epinephrine, dopamine and tyramine and is important for memory, alertness and learning. Also for pain, headaches, arthritic conditions.
Cocoa is remarkably rich in Magnesium (highest in any food), which is good for muscles, bones, nervous system and brain chemistry, and it is a very helpful support for women during times of menstruation and cramping. Magnesium is a muscle relaxant and alleviates stress.
Cocoa is also one of the highest plant sources of Iron, which is required for energy metabolism and oxygen carrying via haemoglobin in the blood. It is also a structural component of cytochromes in electron transport. Part of its enzyme and metabolic function is to assist in neurotransmitter synthesis, phagocyte antimicrobial activity, liver detoxification and synthesis of DNA, collagen and bile acids.
Cocoa is also very high in Sulphur, which is good for strong and healthy skin, hair and nails; a liver detoxifier, and supports healthy pancreas functioning. Some reports say that Cacao is so high in Sulphur that it also supports the detoxification of mercury.
Cocoa has Calcium, which is alkalizing, helps with blood, nerve transmission, bones, and muscles. Regulates the heartbeat. Help enzyme systems to produce acetylcholine, norepinephrine and serotonin. Opposite of Magnesium, as it is contraction.
Cocoa has Phosphorous, which is vital to energy production ATP, and it utilizes CHO and fats for energy production and protein synthesis, and production of nucleic acids in DNA/RNA to carry genetic coding for all cells.
There is Lignin in Cocoa, which inhibits high blood pressure and cholesterol formation. This thins the blood and reduces platelet aggregation.
Cocoa is low in fat, where as chocolate is higher in fat. It has a good balanced amount of EFA’s increase HDL decrease LDL.
