Cacao + Blueberries
Nectar brings pure, unprocessed Cacao pulp from Brazil.
Cacao contains various nutrients that promote a sense of well-being. Methylxanthines are compounds that act as stimulants, acting on the central nervous system, they increase the heart rate and relax smooth muscles. Cacao contains a notable amount of the methylxanthines caffeine and theobromine. They act upon adenosine receptors in the central nervous system, enhancing arousal, mood and concentration levels.
Another nutrient in chocolate is anandamide, which means “bliss” in Sanskrit. Anandamide is the endogenous lipoprotein that binds to cannabinoid receptors in the brain, mimicking the psychoactive effects of cannabinoid drugs, such as heightened sensitivity and euphoria.Finally, chocolate also contains tryptophan, a precursor to the neurotransmittor serotonin, known to enhance moods, and melatonin, which promotes sleep.
Studies have shown that chocolate affects your emotions and mood by raising serotonin levels, which explains why chocolate is often craved when gloominess looms. Also to the rescue is a neurotransmitter called theobromine, a mild stimulant sometimes used as a treatment for depression. It releases the compound anandamide, which produces uniquely euphoric feelings of relaxation and contentment!
