Hi, I’m Kelly Johnson of Sedona Chocolate Super Foods and we’re here on location in
the chocolate room of the Ridiculous Chocolate Factory, inside the Bliss Café in Sedona,
Arizona on behalf of Expert Village. Okay, so cacao, or cacao beans, coco beans, which
you typically hear them called is really high in magnesium, and magnesium is the main mineral
our heart needs to function and it’s like the highest food on the planet on the planet
with magnesium which is a really wonderful thing so, and on a energetic level too, I
feel that cacao opens our heart on every level. You know it’s kind of its spiritual mission,
the cacao tree or plant. The next thing its high in is a chemical called andomide, which
is named after the Sanskrit word ananda which means bliss and it helps bring about a mild
euphoric feeling of being in love or being happy. It helps with serotonin production,
melatonin production.
