For many, chocolate serves as a culinary source of pleasure. This might come as no surprise when looking at one of the essential compounds found in Cacao: the so-called Theobromine, an alkaloid similar to caffeine.
Theobromine, made up of the Greek words “theo” and “broma”, translates to “food of the gods” and is known for its mood-enhancing and heart-opening properties. Moreover, studies suggest that there are several health benefits linked to the consumption of Theobromine, including increased focus and even mild anti-depressive effects.
Have you been feeling groggy and tired recently? A cup of Cacao might help on these cold, gloomy winter days and give you that little extra energy while grounding and comforting you at the same time.
