Our gut. Our body’s second brain… That all health begins in the gut, is an understatement at best.
Our gut microbiome (or gut microflora – the bacteria composition in our gastrointestinal (GI) tract) makes up about 2kg weight, tens of trillions of microorganisms, at least 1000 species of bacteria, and over 3 million DNA genes (we have more bacterial DNA in our gut than our own DNA). Two-thirds of our microbiome is unique to each and every individual and is responsible for affecting our entire body and health in various ways. Technically we are more bacterial than we are human. Are you squirming yet??

Nutritionally speaking there is a difference between raw cacao and cocoa. Raw cacao is made by cold-pressing unroasted cocoa beans. The process keeps the living enzymes in the cocoa and removes the fat (cacao butter). Cocoa powder on the other hand is raw cacao that’s been roasted at high temperatures. Sadly, roasting changes the molecular structure of the cocoa bean, reducing the enzyme content and lowering the overall nutritional value. On top of that, refined sugars are added to make it palatably sweet, incredibly mourish and leaving our brains craving more. Making portion control challenging.
