Young Theobroma Cacao Tree

“More than anything else, cacao supports the heart in the literal, metaphysical, and spiritual sense. The Aztecs often called cacao yollotl eztli, which means “heart blood.” Cacao supports a healthy cardiovascular system opens the heart, returns us to a natural state of feeling (instead of excessive thinking), and reconnects us via intuition to the mystery of Mother Nature’s herbal apothecary.

The mythology surrounding cacao seems to always revolve around regaining the human heart connection to Mother Nature. Consider the following legend from South America:

Khuno, the god of storms, destroyed a village with torrential rain and hail because he was angry at the people for having set fire to the jungle to clear land for their crops. After the storm, the people found a cacao tree. This, they say, is cacao came into cultivation. Cacao showed these people how to live in harmony with the jungle.

Like all superfoods, chocolate straddles the line between a food and a potent beneficial medicine.

The raw cacao bean is one of nature’s most fantastic superfoods due to its mineral content and wide array of unique properties. Since many of the special properties of cacao are destroyed by cooking, refining, and processing, planet Earth’s favorite food is still unknown to most of us. Now we get to reconnect with the power of real chocolate.” Superfoods: Cacao, David Wolfe
