What are the benefits of the raw cacao drink blends?

The raw Peruvian cacao base used in the DUST range is made by cold-pressing un-roasted cacao beans. This gentle method maintains the integrity of the plants molecular structure resulting in a higher antioxidant content and greater overall nutritional value of minerals such as magnesium, calcium, copper, zinc as well as other trace minerals.

Raw cacao has been known to protect cells from oxidation and inflammation, improve mental facilities, support immune health, reduce chronic fatigue and may protect against cancer and heart disease. Raw cacao also contains powerful flavonoids and precursors to serotonin and dopamine, which have shown to alleviate depression, avert anxiety, minimise stress and stabilise mood.
