Rawsome Chocolate Milk
Raw chocolate has been known to create a sense of euphoria, which is amazing, but it also stimulates digestion and protects the skin from dryness! Unlike processed chocolate that has lost most of its nutrients and anti-oxidants, raw chocolate has impressive benefits! 11% of a raw cacao bean is protein, namely glutamine, leucine and arginine (coveted by bodybuilders), 16 % is fibre, 54% essential fats (great for hormones, cell wall integrity and nerve transmission, and arterial health), the remaining percentage is made up of flavonoids and proanthocyanins, vitamins Bs and E, and trace minerals manganese, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, and copper. Raw chocolate improves digestion, circulation, blood pressure, vessel integrity, protects against free radical damage from normal metabolism and environmental toxins. Components of raw chocolate elevate the mood and relax the nervous system. Other ingredients in Rawsome Chocolate Milk compliment the raw cacao effects making this drink great for those who are studying, those who’s work is predominately problem solving, for those who worry, those who are constantly on the go or are engaging in activities that are physically demanding. Enjoy cold or warm!
