       A lot of people are under the impression that Chocolate is bad for human health in general. This may not necessarily be the case. See, most products that contain Cacao are processed, loaded with sugar, and contain tons of preservatives and artificial additives. Raw 100% pure organic dark Cacao is a completely different story when compared to these mainstream tainted versions. It's the specific ingredient itself that's good for you! In my opinion, it makes other good things better! Try it with Kratom, or Cannabis! I don't think it's coincidence that brownies are the most common sought after form of Marijuana edibles! People say it intensifies mushrooms too!


Chocolate has been referred to as "food of the gods" by the ancients. This makes me wonder if there's something secret about it that we don't know about.. or If it's deliberately being modified to reduce its potential by industrial companies? It comes from a tree known as Theobroma cacao, also referred to as the cacao tree. This tree is native to the deep tropical regions of Central and Southern America. The seeds are used to make cocoa powder and other products. When we look at the phytochemical makeup of this botanical we see all sorts of potential pharmacology! There's even some online shops that sell pure theobromine! HOW COOL!?!?! I like to add pure theobromine to certain plants which may have vasoconstrictive properties to combat that, but this is pure theory and hypothesis.


Health Benefits


There has been a lot of down play on the consumption of of this sacred food. I'd like to expose to you many of the potential health benefits of chocolate though. What people fail to realize is that most products that contain it are lacking in these areas because they contain such small amounts of the actual ingredient. If you want to consume chocolate for health reasons, go to a health food store and buy the pure organic variety or shop online here at botanical guides!. It's an acquired taste, but it will grow on you. I swear it almost feels addictive. Based on the science, I hypothesize that it may help the human body build valuable neurochemicals for optimal biological performance.


In general, it is a very rich source of antioxidants known as procyanidins and flavanoids. These naturally occurring chemicals are thought to have anti-aging properties. That makes me want to eat it every single day, along with the potential aphrodisiac qualities. It also contains a chemical called epicatechin, which is thought to be beneficial for the human cardiovascular system. Another pharmacological compound that exist in it is called "theobromine". Researchers are consistently discovering more and more about these sacred compounds produced by plants. You can go and read about each different alkaloid and the large number of health benefits that they induce, and literally come up with a tactful way to use it as a medicine!


Studies show that there are short term benefits in LDL cholesterol levels from the consumption of dark chocolate. Perhaps one of the most fascinating studies on the health benefits of of this food was conducted by the professional researchers of Harvard Medical School. They did a study on Panama's Kuna people, who are big time heavy consumers of cocoa The researchers discovered that the Kuna Indians living on the islands had significantly lower rates of heart disease and even cancer compared to those on the native mainland who failed to consume cocoa. The benefits of of this delicious food also seem to have important implications on learning and memory. After learning this, I started using it to study, and prior to working on this website. The results satisfied me thoroughly.


It was a much bigger deal to the ancient Maya that it is to a lot of us living a modern life-style. They believed that it was discovered by the gods in a mountain which was loaded with other delectable foods that they prized. That makes me wonder if someone slipped some hashish in their coca stash or something? They called it, "(kakaw)". According to ancient Maya teachings, the plumed serpent gave it to the Maya right after humans were created from maize by a divine grandmother goddess known as Xmucane. They Maya even has a "cacao god" that they called Ek Chuah. They must have been some good stuff huh?


This makes me think that there may be batches of this stuff out there somewhere that's the "real deal" that we don't know about.. After having tried other ethnos such as Blue Lotus and Kava from different vendors, I know from experience there's good and bad product out there.. This means you can go through 100 different shops before you find a batch that works.. I hypothesize that chocolate is the same.. I think there's a conspiracy to hide the truth about it from the public.. After all, these primitive cultures behaved as though it was Psilocybin mushrooms or something.. Perhaps it's a maoi-like "potentiator" for other psychoactive substances. ;)


After learning all of this I became very excited. I've always been a fan of this delicious food, yet now I have a completely new outlook on the sacred food. I began buying the 100% pure organic stuff from the health food store. Every morning when I wake up, I eat a small chunk of it. It seems to give me the caffeine boost that I need, without the sugar that leads to a sedative-like crash hours later. Chocolates good, you know it..
