Additional Maqui Cacao Bar Ingredients:
Rose Hips Powder
Rose hips contain carotenoid pigments, plant sterols, tocotrienols and a very high level of anthocyanins, catechins and other polyphenolics. Some of these phytochemicals are known to protect against cancer and cardiovascular disease (CVD). They also contain up to 5 % by weight of pectin, a soluble fiber that protects against CVD. In clinical trials, rose hips were seen to reduce C-reactive protein levels, associated with a lower risk of CVD. Rose hips also have anti-inflammatory properties that have recently been shown to be helpful in the treatment of osteoarthritis.
Palma Rosa Oil
Palma Rosa Oil (Cymbopogon Martini) reduces bacterial growth in the urinary tracts and gives effective protection against infection in the body (septic) and it is also helpful to reduce the affects of indigestion, stress and fatigue. Palma Rosa oil is also used to help relieve back pain and stiff joints and is a treatment for skin diseases. It is also a key ingredient in some hair growth products used to cure baldness.
Red Raspberry Powder
Red Raspberries rank near the top of all fruits for antioxidant strength, particularly due to their rich content of ellagic acid (from ellagotannins), quercetin, gallic acid, anthocyanins, cyanidins, pelargonidins, catechins, kaempferol and salicylic acid. One of the most promising benefits of red raspberries is that they are significant source of ellagic acid. This substance belongs to the family of phytonutrients called tannins, and is viewed as being responsible for a good portion of the antioxidant activity of this (and other) berries. Ellagic acid has become a known as a potent anti-carcinogenic/anti-mutagenic compound.
Organic Raw Cacao
Cacao is one of the leading antioxidant rich substances on the planet known today. It provides an abundant source of iron and magnesium, which support healthy heart function. There are also other chemicals in chocolate which give its reputation as a food associated with love. These include phenylethlamine, tryptophan, and anandamide, “feel good” chemicals that naturally occur in the brain and aid in one’s sense of well-being.
When the cacao beans are roasted, all the minerals and antioxidant flavonoids are damaged and unable to be absorbed by the body at their full potential. . As our name implies, we use only raw chocolate in its purest form – unheated, unprocessed and unadulterated.
