Cacao: Hispanic’s delicious health secret
Posted by Gus on 1/19/2015 to • General Health


There is something about chocolate that makes a majority of us devour it.
It has become one of the most popular flavors in the world. 

But, where does it come from? And is it truly beneficial? 

Most of the chocolate in the market contain additives, dairy, butter, and sugar.
In other words, it’s been processed and stripped away from all the benefits
cacao delivers. 

A main concern for many Hispanic Americans today is bad cholesterol.
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 41.9 %
of Mexican American men and 31.6% of Mexican American women has
high cholesterol. Having a high LDL or “bad” cholesterol puts you at a
high risk of developing stroke and heart disease. Furthermore, the seventh
leading cause of death in the United States is diabetes. CDC named
Hispanics as one of the groups at high risk. 

Where does cacao come in all of this? 

Cacao is the raw form of chocolate. It is native to Central and South America.
Cacao has omega-6 fatty acids which aids with weight loss, healthy cholesterol
levels, and heart health. It’s also rich in antioxidants, minerals, and is a good
source of soluble fiber which may aid in glucose control. 

Today, you are in luck! Natura-Genics® has acquired this delicious health
secret in two forms, Organic Cacao Nibs and Organic Cacao Powder. It can
be added to cereals, ice cream, oatmeal, shakes, smoothies, yogurt, or your
favorite dessert. It contains no additives, dairy, butter, or sugar. It is also 
certified by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) which makes this
product 100% organic. 

It is no surprise cacao is known as “the food of the gods”. In order to achieve
optimum health, discipline yourself by eating healthy (living foods), exercising
regularly, drinking plenty of water, resting, as well as consuming this delicious
superfood.
