LOVE Chocolate and LOVE the DR (my hometown) 🙂
This is a perfect combo and I am obsessed with it!!
Raw cacao is somewhat different from the common “Cocoa” most of us grew up with in. Normal cocoa powder and chocolate have been chemically processed and roasted, process that destroys a large amount of the antioxidants and flavanols (which keep you young and healthy)
A true superfood, raw cacao (or raw chocolate) is loaded with the antioxidants that your skin craves. Raw cacao actually has more antioxidant power than wine, green tea and berries, COMBINED! Antioxidant-rich foods like raw cacao are a vital part of the diet because they help repair damage to your skin tissue.
Replenishing your body with antioxidant-packed raw cacao also blocks out harmful free radicals that would otherwise be oxidized and potentially cause cancer. Free radicals can prematurely age skin, which is a beauty woe everyone wants to avoid. But fear not!
What’s more important is that raw cacao is chock-full of amazing skin-friendly vitamins and minerals, like magnesium, vitamin C, and omega-6 fatty acids that increase blood flow and promote cellular healing, two important processes of the body that boost that youthful glow. To get the best results, it is crucial to ensure the raw cacao content in your products be at least 70% so that they pack the most punch.
