What many of us in the west have come to know and love as chocolate, is worlds apart from the plant medicine its made from, and the ancient history that cacao has rooted in Central and South America.
Cacao has been used in ancient ceremonies by the Maya for thousands of years. It has an active ingredient in it called theobromine — which can be translated to, ‘Food of the Gods’. So it makes sense that cacao was given its sacred status, and enjoyed in communal ceremonies by the Maya with their Gods.
The word cacao actually came from the Maya word Ka’kau, and the Maya word Chokola’j — which means to drink chocolate together.
It is naturally high in iron, magnesium, and B-complex vitamins — which gives it a number of physical benefits as well as the spiritual benefits it has long been connected with. Cacao is packed with vitamins and minerals that are great for cardiovascular health. Cacao is also renowned for releasing dopamine and endorphins in the body, boosting mood, balancing blood sugar levels and strengthening awareness and focus.
