Cacao has been known to be a superfood for a long time, with studies focusing on the numerous health benefits it contains.
Through these studies we have found that cacao contains a large amount of fiber. In a study published in the National Library of Medicine in 2019 titled Effects of Regularly Consuming Dietary Fibre Rich Soluble Cocoa Products on Bowel Habits in Healthy Subjects, the following results were found:
Regularly consuming cocoa A and B increased fibre intake, although only cocoa B significantly increased fibre intake (p < 0.001) with respect to the non-cocoa stage. No changes in body weight were observed in either of the 4 week interventions. With cocoa product B, the number of daily bowel movements increased (p = 0.002), the frequency of having a bowel movement once a day increased (p = 0.009), the time to have a bowel movement was lower (p = 0.016) as well as the feeling of constipation (p = 0.046) without inducing adverse gastrointestinal symptoms, only flatulence increased (p = 0.019). https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3369210/
