  • Raw cacao products, such as cacao nibs, are frequently used in both traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.
  • The Kuna Indians who live on Panama's San Blas islands tend to benefit from extremely low blood pressure, that doesn’t rise with age. An analysis of their lifestyle uncovered one common factor - they regularly enjoy large quantities of a special drink prepared from raw cacao beans, the same ingredient used to make cacao nibs
  • Cacao is high in the beauty mineral sulphur. Sulfur is associated with strong nails, hair, beautiful, shiny skin, and a clean liver and pancreas.
  • In 1753 Carl von Linnaeus, the 18th-century Swedish scientist, thought that cacao was so important that he named the genus and species of this tree himself. He named this tree: Theobroma cacao, which literally means “cacao, the food of the gods.” 
  • Cacao is the seed of a fruit of an Amazonian tree that was brought to Central America during or before the time of the Olmecs. Cacao beans were so revered by the Mayans and Aztecs that they used them as money.

Cacao Nibs Authorised Health Claims

In addition, magnesium contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and normal teeth, and has a role in the process of cell division.
