FOOD OF THE GODS
Known as “the food of the gods”, cacao has been celebrated for thousands of years for it’s magical mood-boosting effects. Ancient cultures sipped cacao in beverage form on a daily basis (just like us). Cacao was even treated as currency and rewarded to warriors after battle. Today, we reward those looking to elevate their daily routine with the timeless superfood powers of cacao.
We ethically source our certified organic & fair trade cacao from the tropical habitats of Peru.
MOOD BOOSTING BRAIN FUEL
We believe cacao’s most incredible benefit is it’s ability to boost both mood and cognitive function. The unique chemical compounds found in cacao have been shown to increase the flow of oxygen to the brain. These “bliss chemicals” can stimulate brain function, elevating mood and feelings of euphoria. Brain + body + bliss!
Our cacao naturally contains Theobromine, which we like to think of as caffeine’s gentle cousin. Theobromine provides a more balanced, sustained form of energy without the jitters or crash.
THE SUPERHERO OF SUPERFOODS
Cacao is nature’s antioxidant powerhouse and can aid our body’s ability to maintain a strong immune system response. Cacao’s unique ability to stimulate blood flow may also provide cardiovascular support for the long haul. With your blood pumping and mood elevated, cacao really does do the body good!
At Rau, we also utilize the natural fats of the cacao bean, known as cacao butter. Mother nature’s ancient beauty hack, cacao butter famously provides nourishing benefits for hair, skin and nails. Beauty from the inside out!
