Cacao & Cold Water Therapy
If you’re someone who enjoys the benefits of cold water therapy, then Be Loved Cacao is the perfect beverage to drink after your cold water dip and here’s why…
Cacao is abundant in flavanols and theobromine, more so than any other plant-based source. Flavanols help increase a chemical in the body called nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is a vasodilator meaning it dilates blood vessels, which enables your body to warm back up more easily than usual, unlike caffeinated drinks which have the opposite effect making it more difficult for the body to warm up.
Due to the vasodilation effects of nitric oxide, this also enables oxygen to get deep into the tissue, providing your body with more energy and focus.
When cold exposure is practiced safely, cacao is a fantastic way to compliment your dip.
