Power in your first hour

mornings with ceremonial grade cacao

They say “win your morning, and you will win your day.”  Simply put, the more productive you are in the morning, the more positive experiences will begin to take form throughout your day. So how about getting more from your mornings with ceremonial grade cacao? Not only will it put a smile on your face. Nevertheless, it is a sweet treat but the grounding benefits that it offers will prove beneficial towards keeping positive momentum for your amazing day ahead.

Between a couple of cups

Cacao and coffee both have caffeine, let’s be clear about that. However, while coffee is mainly dependent on caffeine, cacao’s stimulating power comes from theobromine. Though that’s a very subtle variation, that distinction makes a difference.

To put it in everyday terms, coffee operates on your brain while cacao works its magic on your heart. Coffee blocks the adenosine, our body’s neurotransmitter that relaxes the brain, to eventually make us tired. In contrast, cacao, as a cardiac stimulant, focuses on relaxing our blood vessels, boosting our blood circulation 30-40% better, through the godly stimulating powers of theobromine. Although theobromine also blocks the adenosine, to a lesser degree, its main purpose is to increase heart rate signaling the brain to respond faster.

To underline my point, in your next cup of coffee, try noticing the substantial drop in alertness after a few minutes, or maybe around an hour depending on your tolerance and dosage. However, in the case of cacao, in your next cup, you’ll notice that your concentration lasts considerably longer. The effect is dependent on your diet and dosage, but certainly, you’ll notice its effect is an hour or two longer. The difference between those couple of cups may be the x-factor for your day.

Best for your breakfast

I don’t want to go into full etymology here, but breakfast is called breakfast for a good reason. It’s mainly because, when we talk of breakfast you’re breaking a fast. Let us look at things closer, although we have a different diet, for most of us, the time between our dinner and the moment we get out of bed is generally the longest time we didn’t consume anything. 

Fueling your body and what you decide to use as your fuel is equally important. Doctors and experts highlighted not eating breakfast as one of the culprits for over-eating that then leads to unwanted weight gain, then further health complications. 

Breakfasts are usually packed with folate, calcium, iron, B vitamins, and fiber, all very substantial vitamins, and minerals. Studies over the years have shown that people who have breakfast are more likely to meet their recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals than people who don’t. Having said that, mornings with ceremonial grade cacao exponentially boosts all that and even add so much more to get you up and running to start your day.

Morning magic

For starters, the magic of mornings with ceremonial grade cacao begins with magnesium. Mornings with zero energy are usually because of magnesium deficiency. You’re probably familiar with mornings that just won’t let you get started. The good news is, cacao has the highest natural source of magnesium. The moment you start drinking cacao, you’ll realize you just said goodbye to that kind of morning.

Cacao, other than just fighting low energy, significantly helps your brain start your day. Since magnesium plays a significant role in all our brain functions, especially in memory and concentration. And along with magnesium, raw cacao is also supercharged with flavonoids. It’s a class of polyphenolic secondary metabolites that essentially improves your blood flow. Which equates to improved blood circulation. Enhancing your focus, and your attention span. Magnesium also relaxes your blood vessels and decreases strain, adequately preparing both your nervous and cardiac systems for your day.

Cacao’s more profound magic is from its anandamides, or better known as “bliss molecule”. Essentially, it’s a chemical that binds cannabinoid receptors in the brain and body, that then triggers a sense of happiness, mental wellness, and a deep sense of peace. It also boosts your serotonin level, effectively helping you fight mood swings.
