Benefits of Cocoa

  • Antioxidant Rich
    Cocoa is a rich source of antioxidants. According to studies, the addition of dairy in most chocolate products is blocking our ability to absorb the antioxidants found in raw cocoa, thus with plant milk or alternative, we can maximise on the benefits. The antioxidant properties of cocoa help to promote the regeneration of new skin cells.
  • Can Help Improve Brain Function
    The polyphenols found in cocoa can help blood flow to the brain, thus increasing brain function and reducing the risk of neurodegenerative disease.
  • May Help to Reduce High Blood Pressure
    Cocoa is high in flavanols, which are thought to improve nitric oxide levels in the blood, this can enhance the function of your blood vessels and help to reduce blood pressure.
  • Improves Skin Health
    Cocoa can be beneficial for the skin and has been used as a part of skin treatment in many ancient cultures. Cocoa can enhance the skin's elasticity by making sure skin cells are hydrated and oxygenated. 
  • May Help Treat Diabetes
    Cocoa can also help with regulating sugar in the blood stream. Consuming cocoa tea can help with managing type 2 diabetes as it can help improve insulin resistance in the body. 
  • Mood Enhancer
    Cocoa can help to combat depression, it contains anandamide which is an effective mood enhancer. Drinking cocoa can release endorphins in the body, endorphins are commonly referred to as the ‘happy hormone’.
