Dark chocolate may be sweet ‘n scrumptious, but it also packs a wholesome punch – it’s a superfood loaded with nutrients that can improve your health! This goes to show that nutritious foods don’t need to be bland and flavorless…they can be decadent and satisfying!
Today on the Caliblog, we’re taking you through the benefits of this 3000-year-old treat made from seeds of the cocoa tree. It’s a powerful antioxidant, keeps your heart health in check (but don’t forget to keep up that cardio!), and elevates your mood. That’s why we created a collection of mouthwatering, all-natural vegan Belgian dark chocolate truffles that deliver so much love to your bod. But it doesn’t stop there! We took things to the next level, pairing all that cocoa goodness with soothing CBD and healing herbs.
Now, let’s take a look at some yummy benefits!
Listen up, Calivolvers. This is the ULTIMATE perk that comes with eating dark chocolate! Its high levels of antioxidants protect your cells and tissues from any type of wear and tear, like stress, poor eating habits and aging.
Let’s dig into this a little further! Basically, dark chocolate has a high content of flavonols and polyphenols (sciencey words for plant-based antioxidants) that are even more potent than wine and tea. The dynamic duo has such a positive influence on your body, improving heart health, increasing blood flow to the brain and even helping prevent cancer.
A pro tip for your wellness tool kit: Always go for a higher percentage of cocoa to avoid taking in too much sugar, fat and other additives. The magic number is 70%. On that note, our new Renew collection features a delectable truffle called Arouse, made with 70% cocoa! Calivolve CBD truffles flavors also include antioxidants like pepitas and blood orange because who said less is more?
We all need to keep our hearts beating nice and strong! Who knew a sweet treat could do so much for our cardio health?
Studies show that eating 6 grams of dark chocolate a day can reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering blood pressure and easing inflammation. This is all thanks to those powerful antioxidants! The flavanols stimulate the lining of your arteries, which eventually help them relax, letting your blood flow freely without any unwanted blockages getting in the way.
In a nutshell: dark chocolate is the way to your heart.
Last but not least, our fave benefit of dark chocolate! It triggers endorphins and serotonin, feel-good chemicals in the brain that make you giddy. You may even feel euphoric and less stressed! No wonder we crave chocolate when dealing with the perils of PMS.
Dark chocolate is also considered the main food source of anandamide, a.k.a. the “bliss molecule”. Here’s a fun fact for you, plant lovers! This neurotransmitter is super similar to THC, one of the intoxicating components of cannabis.
What’s more, dark chocolate is a must-have bedroom essential. Known as an aphrodisiac with seductive prowess, it contains theobromine, a caffeine-related compound in the cacao plant that zeroes in on your nervous system, turning up stimulation. Our Arouse truffle is amazing for those lusty love seshes! The combo of cacao seeds and mood-making CBD takes you all the way to the finish line.
All said and done, dark chocolate is the perfect balance of nutrition and pleasure, making living well taste – and feel – so good!
We crafted our Calivolve CBD truffles with that philosophy in mind, amping up the health benefits of Belgian dark chocolate with pure ingredients like full-spectrum CBD, maca root, ashwagandha, and damiana, to name a few. We leave out all the bad stuff so that you can really indulge in good health!
