This Valentine's Day think about that special someone that truly touches your heart. Think about what that person means to you and how you love spending quality time together. Think about how precious time is and how our quality of life can be affected when we are not proactive with our health. Our time is limited and invaluable. It's all about feeling good and being able to enjoy life. Time is going to pass whether we treat ourselves well or not. I choose to feel good, be pain free and grow old slowly. I encourage you and your loved ones to do this as well.
So how can you feel well mentally, physically and emotionally? How can you alkalize your blood, keep inflammation down in your body, and feed your gut flora all in one swoop? The answer is simple and amazing...
Eat lots of chocolate!
Cacao beans are seeds of the Theobroma Cacao tree, a small evergreen tree grown in Mexico and South America. The by-product of this amazing bean, raw unprocessed chocolate, will help put you in a good mood by increasing levels of certain neurotransmitters that promote a sense of well-being. The same brain chemical that is released when we experience deep feelings of love and romance – phenylethylamine – is found in chocolate (cacao). It is high in resveratrol, a potent anti-aging antioxidant known for its ability to cross your blood-brain barrier to help protect your nervous system. These polyphenols and flavonoids help relax blood vessels, reduce blood pressure, neutralize toxins, protecting your heart and preventing against cardiovascular disease.
The antioxidant content of chocolate, far exceed that of blueberry, goji berry or acai berry.
Cacao (raw unprocessed chocolate) the top ingredient in Rockin' Wellness, not a Hershey bar, is rich in minerals:magnesium, iron, potassium, calcium, zinc, copper and manganese. Chocolate contains high amounts of magnesium which helps keep blood pressure normal, bones strong, and the heart rhythm in balance. Experts say that many people in the U.S. aren't eating enough foods with magnesium. Adults who consume less than the recommended amount of magnesium are more likely to have elevated inflammation markers. Inflammation, in turn, has been directly associated with deadly diseases and many painful chronic conditions.
Cacao is amazing food for our bellies.
The chemical compounds in raw unprocessed chocolate feed and nourish our gut bacteria. These compounds assist in keeping inflammation levels low allowing us to digest food properly and increase the absorption of nutrients from these foods directly into our system. As a person that battles a life threatening digestive disease, these nutrients are what I depend on to maintain a healthy and properly functioning digestive system.
Each of the smoothie blends that we offer at RockinWellness.com, Chocolate (Cacao) and the Vanilla Mocha Swirl, are both really tasty and contain large amounts of raw cacao in them. It is in fact the leading ingredient used in the chocolate smoothie.
