The Sweet Truth about Cocoa

Posted on January 21, 2014

Chocolate is a common treat, so enjoyed that people will readily call themselves choco-holics. The original choco-holics consumed the fruit of the Theobroma Cacao tree an entirely different way then we do today. They drank it.

Archaeologists believe they have found cocoa residue in cups and bowls dating back to 600 BCE in Central and South American ruins.

A lot of choco-holics will be equipped with a laundry list of health benefits of chocolate like:

-lowering blood pressure,
-aiding digestion,
-waking the mind up, 
-releasing the same chemicals your body does when it's in love,
-and containing tons of antioxidants for your immune system.

Unfortunately a lot of our chocolate bars aren’t more than a mixture of butter, sugar, and very little cocoa, so those great benefits aren't really there.


but Cocoa Bella Brew is 100% cocoa, which means 100% of the benefits!

It's easily brewed in a french press like coffee, and is delicious by itself or mixed with coffee or espresso. No additives means no wondering what you're drinking as you enjoy your chocolate drink.



Added bonus: Cocoa contains a natural, non-addictive stimulant called theobromine. Theobromine offers a healthy energy boost and increases both alertness and metabolism, making it a great alternative to caffeine.
