About VitaJing Cacao:
Our VitaJing Cacao powder originates from hand picked Ecuadorian Arriba criollo cacao pods.
The beans are hand selected, fermented in specialized huts for approx. 3-4 days, sun-dried to perfection, crushed and winnowed (the skins removed). These nibs are ground in a granite melange and naturally liquefy (cacao beans are naturally high in fat containing approx. 45-60%).
The liquefied cacao mass is transferred to a mechanical press where the cacao butter is removed. The remaining mass ('cake') is ground into a fine powder and packaged for your enjoyment. Our cacao does not go through a "Dutch" process nor alkalized in any way.
Food of the Gods:
There is archaeological evidence from Honduras dating back to 1400BC indicating that Cacao beans were processed for consumption as a beverage since that time.1
The botanical name, Theobroma cacao means "Food of the Gods". Considered a highly prized commodity, some ancient civilizations in South America used cacao as currency. Its healthful benefits were highly recognized by the ancient Maya and Aztec civilizations.
Cacao (Theobroma cacao) is a good source of calcium, iron, zinc, copper, manganese, and potassium, as well as Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, E, and pantothenic acid. Cacao is considered as one of the best plant sources of magnesium which is vital in energy production and for healthy muscles, brain, nerves, bones and teeth
It contains several compounds which stimulate the production of dopamine in the body and potent mood enhancers which can encourage an overall sense of wellbeing.
In cocoa, flavonoids function as antioxidants and help to reduce inflammation. Flavonols promote brain health, vascular elasticity and may provide neuro-protective benefits positively impacting learning and memory.
The flavonol epicatechin in Cacao has been found to promote skin elasticity and help reduce skin roughness and scaling. So this is a great beauty tonic as well.
Preliminary research also suggests that Cocoa may help with cognitive performance, attention span, reaction time, and problem-solving skills by increasing blood flow to the brain.*
