We’ve sourced a beautiful cacao that not only tastes delicious but contains a raft of plant secondary metabolites such as theobromine an alkaloid that has similar actions to caffeine with a stimulating but less stressful effect on the central nervous system. Cacao is also packed full of polyphenols, flavanols and proanthocyanidins that exhibit high antioxidant capacities to support cognitive function and the nervous system.
