Some experts consider cocoa butter to be the number one antioxidant food and the best of magnesium of any food. It is high in oleic acid — a healthy fat that raises good cholesterol and reduces appetite.
Historically, cocoa has been used to treat everything from kidney disorders and liver disease to depression and tickly coughs, but scientists now believe its antioxidants could also help prevent cancers and heart disease, while also increasing blood flow to the brain and fighting dementia.
Raw cacao butter is saturated fat, but healthy in small amounts. Use to make delicious raw chocolate treats and desserts. Cacao butter also makes an amazing body moisturizer.
