Chocolate is the absolute queen of sweets!
Its taste and smell seduce, supposedly providing stronger sensations than a passionate kiss!
Not all the benefits of eating chocolate are so obvious.
Some of them may even surprise you!
Chocolate has many health benefits - many people report that it improves mood and concentration and even raises energy levels. Everyone knows that after enjoying a piece of cacao goodness, you feel better and concentrate easier. The symptoms of fatigue and stress disappear as mood improves. A good portion of carbohydrates, magnesium, potassium and iron is responsible for the boost in vitality we experience.
But, that is just the beginning...
For example, did you know that chocolate helps with weight loss?
It’s no joke!
This is thanks to epicatechin - an ingredient that activates the metabolism and helps burn calories, while also improving blood circulation and eliminating fatigue. For chocolate to help you lose weight, two conditions should be in place: it should contain a minimum of 70% of cacao, and you should eat a maximum of two small squares a day.
Dark chocolate is even recommended for pregnant women. In its healthier version, it contains powerful nutrients and antioxidants that help the baby develop properly while boosting mom’s mood along the way.
When thinking about getting the best chocolate for yourself, a few factors come to play a key role. My Raw Joy chocolate products are unique as they maintain the healthiest properties of raw cacao while providing amazing taste indulgence.
All our chocolates are handmade and use only the finest raw ingredients: Raw Peruvian cacao, coconut palm sugar and raw cashews. What makes them special is our focus on a traditional artisanal process where we match the texture and flavor of conventional chocolate products- without including any of the "bad" stuff.
To preserve the nutritional qualities of the superfood cacao and the mineral-rich coconut palm sugar, we always keep our production below 42°C. Our goal is to make the best and healthiest chocolate possible for our customers.
That makes our products plant-based, 100% natural and chock-full of goodness… proving once and for all that being a sweet tooth can boost your health and your taste pleasure!
