Cioccolada’s luxurious wellness chocolates are crafted from the world’s finest cacao beans

The cacao bean, in its rawest form, is the dried and fully fermented fatty seed of the Theobroma cacao tree. Long referred to as the “Food of the Gods,” cacao was originally consumed over 5,000 years ago by pre-Columbian cultures along the Yucatan, including the Mayans and Olmec civilizations. The Mayans were the first known chocolate lovers in recorded history. Cacao was an essential part of their diet and often used in their daily rituals as a mood-enhancing agent. Centuries later, the Aztecs used cacao to relieve fatigue and stimulate their mental and physical capabilities. Cacao is a true superfood: its 300+ nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals are proven to yield an assortment of health benefits and anti-aging effects. Specifically, cacao is a rich source of magnesium, which supports healthy brain and heart function, and is packed with vitamins A, B and E to improve blood flow and aid in the development of strong bones, nails and hair.

Cacao also contains a number of organic compounds and natural monoamine alkaloids, such as Phenyl Ethylamine, which serves as a natural anti-depressant by boosting Serotonin levels in the brain to create strong feelings of euphoria, attraction and excitement. Cioccolada’s delicious creations use only the purest cacao beans from Peru, where the beans are properly harvested and meticulously prepared to preserve their fresh richness and delicious taste.
