Let’s talk about the health benefits of cacao and dark chocolate. Cacao is the raw bean that’s fermented and processed into chocolate. Cacao and dark chocolate are both loaded with phytonutrients (polyphenols and flavonols). They actually have higher amounts than blueberries or açaí berries.

There is a small amount of caffeine in cacao and dark chocolate, as well as a good amount of theobromine (a stimulant). So, if you have cacao or dark chocolate later in the day or before bed, it may keep you up.

I consume a little bit of chocolate on a regular basis, but I always consume chocolate that is organic and doesn’t contain sugar. A few brands I like are Lily’s Sweets and Choc Zero.

Cacao and dark chocolate are high in oxalates. So, if you’re at risk for kidney stones, you may not want to consume either one.

Potential health benefits of dark chocolate and cacao:
1. Decreased blood pressure
2. Increased HDL and decreased LDL (especially oxidized LDL)
3. Decreased risk of heart disease (decreased endothelial dysfunction)
4. Decreased cortisol and adrenaline
5. Decreased risk of certain cancers
6. Decreased insulin (may improve insulin resistance)
7. Decreased risk of strokes
8. Better mood and increased serotonin (it can act as an antidepressant)
9. Increased physical performance
10. Increased skin circulation, texture, hydration
11. Decreased metabolic syndrome
