Raw cacao contains over 300 identifiable (and some as yet unidentified) compounds and is the most complex food substance on earth; this is why the Mayan’s called it the ‘food of the Gods’. Recently it has been called the 'food of the Goddess', because it is our true gift from mother nature. Cacao contains an abundance of natural anti-stress, bliss-inducing compounds like serotonin, anandamin, tryptophan and many others. It is extremely rich in magnesiumstrengthening the heart muscle and decreases blood coagulation which lowers blood pressure and helps the heart pump more effectively. It balances brain chemistry and increases neuro-efficiency as well. Cacao is also packed withantioxidants that enable destructive free radicals to be stabilised, which would otherwise be left to damage cells and tissue, which show as signs of aging.
Maca is nicknamed 'Peruvian ginseng'. This root vegetable from the Andes has a positive impact on the reproductive systems of both men and women. Increasing natural fertility, minimising menopausal symptoms, and age related male impotence, without upsetting hormonal levels in the body. Maca also increases oxygen in blood which leads to higher vitality and stamina. Besides that, it improves the function of neurotransmitters which leads to better memory. Maca is an adaptogen which means that it adapts its function within our bodies to suit our individual needs, and help us to cope with the stresses of a fast-paced lifestyle.
