Health Benefits of Cacao
The Big Six
Theobromine, a healthy stimulant? That's right! Choffy contains a stimulant called theobromine and unlike caffeine, theobromine is healthy for you! Theobromine is a vasodilator, which increases blood flow. When your vascular system is dilated, there are numerous health benefits, like the transportation of more oxygen and nutrients to the cells in your muscles, organs, and brain! Theobromine will also give you a healthy energy boost and help fight tooth decay and cavities. Bottom line - You will get a cleaner, more gentle boost without the crash, jitters, or nervousness that caffeine causes.
Anandamide is a chemical compound that, when present in the body, helps you to create more serotonin! Serotonin is the key hormone that stabilizes mood and increases feelings of well-being and happiness. This hormone impacts your entire body, and enables brain cells and other nervous system cells to communicate with each other. Serotonin also aids in sleeping, eating, and digestion! Bottom line - When you drink Choffy you are going to feel happier!
Antioxidants (Polyphenols & Sterols) are fantastic compounds that fight off free radicals and buffer lactic acid and waste out of the muscles and organs, helping you to function better at the cellular level! Bottom line - When you combine these antioxidants with a healthy stimulant like theobromine, you get a super charged, detoxifying agent that helps your body to operate at an optimal level!
Epicatechin (found in cacao) is a flavanol that increases nitric oxide production, mitochondrial biogenesis, angiogenesis, follistatin, and exercise performance, while decreasing myostatin. What does all that mean? When you drink Choffy, your body will produce more follistatin, and by increasing follistatin, you produce more lean muscle! Bottom line - Choffy can help promote the growth of lean muscle mass.
Want to lose weight? Choffy actually helps you lose weight! Myostatin is a hormone that helps regulate body fat. The more you have, the more fat your body produces. Bottom line - By epicatechin decreasing myostatin, it dually decreases body fat!
Choffy is NOT acidic like coffee! If you are having digestinal issues due to coffee, worry no more! Choffy is gentle and easy on your system, unlike coffee. Choffy is almost neutral on the acidity chart, making it a perfect choice for anyone!
