Raw Cacao (SMILE®)
People have enjoyed this delightful food from the South American Theobroma tree since ancient times, using it for a variety of medicinal purposes. We include raw cacao powder in our SMILE® Upbeat Focus™ bar because of its stable flavanols and minerals. Plus, who doesn’t love chocolate? Clinical studies suggest that cacao may improve mood and overall brain function. We use only raw cacao because it is less processed than other forms of cocoa products, preserving more of the nutrients. Did you know that it may also support the health of your gut microbiome?
