Today's raw chocolate Valentine's Day theme is all about that Antioxidant Love.
Within the last decade chocolate has gone from being a not-so-healthy guilty pleasure to an actual anti-aging superfood full of vital nutrition. It turns out, when all of the processed ingredients like milk and refined sugar get stripped away, the base ingredient of all chocolate - cacao - has an incredible secret: it's bursting with antioxidants.
Cacao is rich with flavonoid polyphenols - bioactive phytochemicals that possess serious antioxidant capabilities; in fact, cacao is one of the richest sources of antioxidants on the planet. The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) of raw cacao nibs is 62,100 per 100g, while goji berries rate in at 25,300, acai at 18,500, and blueberries at 2,400 - all of which being incredible sources of antioxidants in their own right, but as you can see, they are overshadowed by the antioxidant master: raw cacao. Antioxidants are anti-inflammatory, help guard the body against degenerative disease, and help our skin maintain elasticity and youthfulness.
