20 Aug Cacao for Athletic Performance
3 ways Be Loved Cacao supports athletic performance
1. Energises the body
Unlike most commercial energy drinks which are overloaded with synthetic ingredients and high in sugar, caffeine and other (artificial) additives, Be Loved Cacao is a superfood which contains no additives and only filled with the good stuff.
Cacao is a natural vasodilator which allows oxygen to get deep into the tissue, enabling a boost of energy in the body.
Unlike coffee, cacao increases energy and gives us the lift without the crash. Containing about the same amount of caffeine as decaf coffee, cacao provides mental focus and doesn’t give us the crash of caffeine.
2. Nutrient Dense
Cacao contains an abundance of nutrients which can help replenish our bodies during and following physical exercise. To name a few; iron which is important for making red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body. Magnesium prevents muscle spasms and cramping and also helps the recovery process, and potassium which plays a role in the storage of carbohydrates to fuel your muscles.
3. Prevents Inflammation
The polyphenols and flavonoids found in cacao have been proven to help lower inflammation, allowing muscles to repair more efficiently. The natural chemicals found in cacao are said to help alkalise the body helping rid your body of chronic inflammation.
