Find Your Bliss with Cacao

There are so many reasons why we love cacao. Time and time again, we see how cacao helps to transform lives in BIG ways. In addition to being a heart-opening superfood, cacao contains anandamide which has euphoric-inducing properties. In other words, cacao has the power to make you a happier (as well as healthier) human! And if there is one goal we have at Live A Lot, it is to help create a happier and healthier world. This is at the core of what we strive for as a company.

A recent article on Daily Superfood Love lists the amazing benefits of cacao. Here are some of our favorites:

  • Enhances energy/vitality. It comes as no surprise that cacao is an aphrodisiac; it contains phenethylamine, which releases endorphins commonly associated with love and sex. We are all for Living (and loving) A Lot! Additionally, the magnesium in cacao energizes and helps fight fatigue. 
  • Balances hormones. Cacao is also known for increasing serotonin in the brain, which helps calm the system, as well as alleviate PMS symptoms. All around, cacao can help nourish and balance.
  • Promotes youthfulness. The antioxidant properties of cacao may help you look and feel younger, helping to cultivate healthy hair, skin, and nails. Additionally, studies have shown that by increasing blood flow to the brain, cacao can help prevent memory loss and disease.

In bliss and balance,
