Are you looking for a healthy pick-me-up drink? One that is organic, gluten-free, and vegan? We have you covered: Cacao Tea.
Cacao tea isn’t your standard high calorie chocolatey beverage. It has no sugars, additives, syrups, and has zero calories - that's right, zero! It's just hot water infused with cacao husks. It really is a guilt-free beverage that you can drink any time of day, every day of the week.
Let's dive into some of the health benefits you can expect to experience after introducing cacao tea into your daily routine.
More Antioxidants for a Healthier You
Your body is always performing balancing acts to maintain good health (remember homeostasis from high school biology class? Thanks Mrs. Boyen!). One of its many acts involves balancing free radicals and antioxidants. If your body creates too many free radicals and does not have enough antioxidants to balance them out, you can reach a state of oxidative stress. This could lead to damaged cells and can speed up the aging process over time.
Cacao tea serves as a tasty source of antioxidants that keeps both your cells and skin healthy. Drinking it on a daily basis will help your body control the balance between free radicals and antioxidants, boosting your immune system and preventing the damaging effects due to a surplus of free radicals.
Did You Know: Cacao shells have at least 40 times more antioxidants than blueberries!
No Calories, No Problem!
Our tea contains cacao bean husks and nothing else. Because we don't add anything else, there aren't any calories. With zero calories, you can consider drinking cacao tea during a fast, during meals, or even before bed. You’ll get all the main health benefits of drinking cacao tea without the sugars and starches that other chocolate beverages contain. The theobromine in the tea also helps boost your metabolism, promoting healthy weight loss without the downsides of caffeine.
Boost Your Mood and Energy Without Caffeine
Caffeine has many unwanted side effects, from anxiety to headaches and migraines. For some people, caffeine can become an unhealthy addiction, and without it, they may experience symptoms of withdrawal. Coffee and various other teas contain caffeine that may reinforce this unhealthy attachment, even when consumed in small amounts.
Our organic cacao tea, however, doesn’t contain caffeine. Instead, it contains theobromine - a natural, gentler alkaloid that provides an energizing and mood-lifting effect without the addiction or the crash. Drinking cacao tea also primes your brain to release endorphins such as:
