Raw chocolate: a healthy and yummy addition to a protein shake
Pretty much everyone loves chocolate, but many people don’t know, or never stop to consider, the fact that chocolate originally comes from a plant. Cacao beans have many of the benefits which are also found in vegetables. But cacao beans are usually processed, and other things are added before we eat the cacao in the form of a chocolate bar. Raw cacao beans contain the most nutrients, which means this is the healthiest form of cacao to eat. The best way to eat cacao beans is blended in a smoothie.
The benefits of raw cacao beans and chocolate. Are they healthy in protein shakes?
Raw cacao beans are packed with antioxidants, which protect our bodies from free radicals. The flavonoids in raw cacao beans also produce nitric oxide, which helps to regulate blood pressure and balance hormone levels. Cacao beans also have huge benefits for your health: they stimulate the kidneys and reduce the risk of heart disease. So there’s no reason to eat less chocolate, but it is important to choose the healthiest possible option: the one which contains the best cacao. With cacao beans, you can add extra nutritional values to your meals.
