Raw Chocolate for Valentine's Day from Sunfood

Raw cacao is the purest form of chocolate. All chocolate comes from the cacao fruit, which grows on jungle trees. Raw Cacao is a superfood filled with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to give your body strength and fight free radicals. Raw cacao is also dairy and gluten free. Women instinctively crave chocolate because we need that boost of magnesium as PMS (and stress) depletes our magnesium reserve. I've been a raw cacao consumer for many years. I call it my "coping mechanism". I used to love mainstream chocolate now it all just tastes waxy to me. I've also tried various brands of raw cacao and I find that Sunfood is the preeminent brand of raw cacao. Here's some "coping mechanisms" of your own to try from Sunfood. Raw cacao provides a boost of phenylethylamine (PEA), which is a chemical that your body produces when you fall in love, making it a perfect Valentine's Day treat. Unlike mainstream chocolate, raw cacao is dairy and gluten free, so satisfying it curbs cravings. Raw cacao is the only plant that naturally contains anandamide, an endorphin the body produces after em . . . romantic or vigorous exercise. You get the picture. The enzyme inhibitors available in cacao decrease the breakdown of anandamide to maintain that good feeling for an extended period of time. Raw cacao is also a good source of theobromine, which plays an important role in heart health. Sunfood products can be purchased at sunfood.com.
