Tsatsayaku ceremonial grade cacao that we use is made from the Arriba Nacional | Fino de Aroma cacao bean in Ecuador. It is wild-harvested, non-GMO, organic and Fair Trade. Cacao contains potassium, phosphorus, copper, iron, zinc, and magnesium which contribute to cardiovascular health. Cacao has the ability to trigger the release of dopamine and the endorphins that soothe the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome and depression. It contains the bliss molecule Anandamide which helps to relieve emotional stress.
Please note that Cacao does not work well with caffeine so we recommend to leave at least 3 hours between drinking coffee or stimulants and cacao. We also recommend that you do not eat for at least three hours prior to the ceremony to support your body to take in and absorb the cacao for ceremony.
