Heart Health & Cancer
Fresh cacao beans are rich in the type of bioflavonoid called flavanols that may help maintain healthy blood flow and blood pressure and are known in helping to stave off cancer, heart disease and strokes. The flavanols in cacao, especially the epicatechins, prevent fatty substances in the bloodstream from oxidizing and then clogging the arteries. Cacao beans contain 10,000 milligrams (10 grams) of flavanol antioxidants per 100 grams - or an impressive 10% antioxidant concentration level.
