Savour the perfect combination of rich artisan-made chocolate with Maca root.
Maca is a plant known and appreciated in Latin America since pre-Columbian times and is still a popular natural medicine in Central and South America…
Incan warriors are said to have consumed Maca before battle to increase their prowess. Traditionally Maca has also been regarded as a potent aphrodisiac and hormone balancer among the native Peruvian population.
This balance is vital to a healthy mind and body, but can be easily disrupted. Stress, poor diet, polluted air and water as well as toxins in cosmetics are some of the biggest causes of hormone imbalances. Recently Maca has been the subject of many independent studies that have confirmed its astonishing properties.
Our chocolate contains two of the best varieties of Maca root – black and red.
Raw chocolate with Maca is a healthy snack that combines the many positive qualities of raw cacao with Maca root to help you feel good. It is made from organically grown, unroasted cacao beans that are subject to a low-temperature processing below 47°C, and therefore is a perfect source of magnesium, sulphur, iron, flavanols, vitamins and antioxidants. Maca has been known to contain anandamide which is a proven mood enhancer and has a relaxing effect.
Added to that – raw chocolate is a natural anti-depressant, and an aphrodisiac! In fact, it may contain as many as 300 identifiable chemical compounds, making it one of the most complex foods known to man.
The love for cacao combined with the principles of social responsibility are the origin of this delicious raw chocolate.
