Since everyone thought I was going to write about a plant or about chocolate.

Here we write something about cocoa :)

Cocoa  ( Theobroma cacao ) is a tropical tree from the mallow family, originating from South America, the tropical forests of the Amazon. It was brought to Europe by Christopher Columbus from his seafaring adventures in the newly discovered America. The peoples of that time made a specific drink from cocoa, similar to today's liqueurs. The Spanish colonizers liked this drink, as well as Columbus himself, who brought it to the Spanish court. Cocoa powder is obtained by grinding seeds.

Cocoa powder is further used, as we have already said, for various purposes, and its most famous role is in the production of chocolate. The quality of chocolate is assessed by the percentage of cocoa powder contained.

In the production of chocolate, milk powder, sugars, various flavors and fillings are added along with the powder. Beverages are also made from cocoa powder, and alcoholic drinks that have a specific taste can be made from the pulp with which the cocoa fruit is filled.

From the moment cocoa records its expansion until today, it has become one of the most commercial plant species ever.

All generations enjoy its taste and the healing properties of cocoa are becoming more and more prominent, so it is used in natural medicine to treat various diseases and disorders of the body.

The ancient inhabitants of the American continent, the Incas and the Maya, considered cocoa a gift from God, so it played a significant role in their religious rites. The natives of South America also had a special deity who assigned cocoa to protect it from evil forces. They were the first to make an alcoholic drink from cocoa, and only men were allowed to drink it. Cocoa is implanted in the cultures of many peoples living on the soil of the American continent today.

Modern phytotherapy, gastronomy and industry give cocoa a special dimension. Discovering its specific, bitter, exotic and intense taste, it becomes the most important ingredient in your favorite dessert - chocolate. It is used as a spice in cooking and also serves as an adjunct therapy in the treatment of herbs for various disorders in the body.

It is an extremely rich plant in nutrition. It contains a large number of vitamins, minerals and trace elements and is therefore extremely important for human health.

It contains a large amount of magnesium. Cocoa also contains a large number of antioxidants that protect the body from free radicals and strengthen immunity. In addition to antioxidants, cocoa also contains large amounts of iron, vitamins A, B, C, E, then chromium, manganese, zinc.

Cocoa is rich in omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, so it protects your heart and blood vessels. Cocoa helps the secretion of happiness hormones, serotonin and dopamine, so it is no wonder that chocolate has a positive effect on our mood.

We mentioned the importance of cocoa powder when it comes to vitamins and minerals. Due to its rich nutritional composition, it is used in phytotherapy, in the treatment of various diseases and for the regulation of certain disorders in the body.

It has proven to be very effective when it comes to blood vessels. Protects the heart and blood vessels, lowers cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood. Due to the low proportion of sugar and because it has a stimulating effect on the pancreas and insulin secretion, it is recommended for diabetics to regulate blood sugar.

Organic, clean as a powder will help you treat:

  • Increased blood pressure

  • Anemia, anemia and iron deficiency

  • It protects the heart and blood vessels

  • It reduces depression, anxiety and other psychological ailments

  • It regulates the amount of sugar in the blood

  • Lowers high cholesterol

  • Protects the body from free radicals - serves as an antioxidant

  • Regulates digestion

  • Strengthens the hair follicle

  • It affects the health of the skin, so it is added to creams and body baths

  • It stimulates concentration, memory and good mood

When buying cocoa powder, pay attention and buy a quality and proven product. Only such cocoa has the full effect. Instant cocoa-based powders with the addition of artificial flavors and large amounts of sugar, additives and dyes are not recommended.

Pice mog detinjstva. Pravila sam se da sam velika i kao pila kafu sa mamom i tatom. Još mi je taj miris detinjstva u nosu. A sto se tiče zdravlja, svi znamo koliko je kakao zdrav u normalnim količinama. !

Kakao sadrži i velik udio topivih dijetalnih vlakana koja dobro utječu na naš probavni sustav - pročišćavaju crijeva i potiču peristaltiku. Kakao zrna mogu se samljeti cijela, zdrobiti ili samljeti u fini prah.
