Cacao is extraordinarily rich in antioxidant flavanoids – the cacao flavanoid group is known collectively as flavanols. The antioxidant provision of foods is measured on a scale referred to as ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity). By this measure, Cacao is one of the most antioxidant-rich foods available. It also boasts a range of amino acids and nutrients that makes cacao an extremely valuable part of a healthy diet.
A well-known Harvard Medical School study investigated the effects of Cacao on the Kuma Indians of Panama, comparing a group given to drinking large quantities of home-prepared Cacao with another exhibiting more modern dietary habits. The results were startling: put simply, the Cacao-consuming group had much lower rates of stroke, cardiovascular disease and cancer than the other.
