National Chocolate Day = FREE CHOCOLATE! // 10 Reasons Cacao Is Amazing
by Nadia KumentasJuly 07, 2016
Happy National Chocolate Day!
To celebrate this GLORIOUS celebration we are giving away a *FREE* Drinking Chocolate with every order over $40.00!
Use code: CHOCOLATEDAY2016
Here are just a FEW of the reasons we love cacao:
It's choc-a-block full of antioxidant goodness
It can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or/AND dinner
It has natural anti-inflammatory properties
It can improve cardiovascular function by lowering blood pressure, improving blood flow, lowering LDL cholesterol, and reducing plaque buildup on artery walls.
It's melty and gooey
It's a natural source of magnesium and zinc
It goes with EVERYTHING. Oh yeah, I said it. EVERYTHING.
This mood enhancing magic comes from the amino acid tryptophen which is abundantly found in raw cacao and causes aphrodisiac and relaxation effects.
It also contains something called a nandamide which is a fat found in cacao that has earned the name "the bliss molecule". It's feel good properties are due to its natural molecular shape which mimics that of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.
IT makes the perfect gift for ALL occasions i.e. : "I'm sorry", "I love you", "You're the best friend ever!", "Happy Birthday!", "Sorry for your loss", "Congrats!", "Happy Valentines day" "Valentines day is for suckers" or my favourite, "JUST BECAUSE".

Having a hard time remembering the last time you had a full night's sleep? Or maybe you're someone who can sleep 6 or more hours a night but still wake up feeling unrefreshed.You're not alone. North American's are seeing a steady increase in sleeping issues - which to me is not surprising with more and more glowing screens, stress, and poor sleep habits on the rise as well.
So you’re looking to take your detox one step further? Welcome to the wet and wild world of hydrotherapy!
Hydrotherapy, or water-therapy, is an ancient practice dating back hundreds of years used all over the world. We love hydrotherapy for all of its amazing benefits and that's why we've included it as a part of both our 14 day and 28 day detox programs.
