Nutritional Content Of Our Chuncho Cocoa (Real Test Lab Results)

This is how healthy Cacao really is

Unfortunately, cocoa is still perceived as an unhealthy sweet. Cocoa is a real powerhouse among the superfoods. To confirm this, we sent one of our bags of Chuncho cocoa from Peru to an independent test laboratory and had it tested for the following parameters.

Polyphenols in Cacao

The polyphenols contained in cocoa, especially the flavanoids, have antioxidant properties. They can help reduce oxidative stress and fight inflammation, which may contribute to improved heart health. In addition, they can improve brain function and reduce the risk of neurodegenerative diseases.

Magnesium in Cacao

Cocoa is an excellent source of magnesium. Magnesium supports many bodily functions, including muscle and nerve function, blood sugar levels and blood pressure. It also helps in protein formation and plays an important role in DNA synthesis.

Iron in Cacao

Cocoa contains iron, which helps form hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the heart to the rest of the body. Iron is also important for immune system function and DNA synthesis.

Zinc in Cacao

Zinc is an essential trace element found in cocoa. It is necessary for the function of over 300 enzymes in the body and plays a crucial role in immune function, protein and DNA synthesis, and cell division.

Manganese in Cacao

Manganese is another important trace element found in cocoa. It plays a crucial role in the formation of collagen, a protein needed for healthy skin and bones, and supports metabolism and antioxidant processes in the body.

Phosphorus in Cacao

Cacao also contains phosphorus, a mineral essential for the body to form and maintain bones and teeth. In addition, phosphorus plays a role in storing and using energy and supports the functioning of the kidneys and heart.

Theobromine in Cacao

Theobromine is a stimulant compound found in cocoa. It can help increase energy levels, improve mood, and even lower blood pressure . It also has diuretic, stimulant and relaxing effects.

Caffeine in Cacao

Cacao contains a small amount of caffeine , which is known to increase alertness and energy levels. Caffeine can also help increase cognitive performance and improve physical performance.
