What is Ceremonial Cacao?

Ceremonial cacao is pure, unprocessed cacao that retains its natural properties and health benefits. It has been used in sacred rituals and ceremonies for thousands of years. The Mayans and Aztecs revered cacao as a gift from the gods, using it to connect with the divine and celebrate life.

Unlike regular cocoa or processed cacao, ceremonial cacao maintains its whole nutritional profile because it is minimally processed and free from additives. Ceremonial cacao contains magnesium, iron, and antioxidants that support your mental, emotional and physical health.

Why Use Ceremonial Cacao?

When comparing ceremonial cacao to regular cacao or cocoa, the differences are clear. Regular cocoa is often processed and mixed with sugar and dairy, diminishing its health benefits. Ceremonial cacao, on the other hand, is pure and refined, providing a more potent and wholesome experience.

Ceremonial cacao stands out for its unique properties and benefits. It contains high levels of theobromine, a natural stimulant that provides a gentle energy boost without the crash associated with caffeine. It also promotes the release of endorphins and serotonin, enhancing your mood and creating a sense of well-being.
