Ultra-Pure Single Ingredient
In Olmec, Incan, Mayan and Aztec cultures royalty and high priests would use cacao as a main ingredient in a ceremonial frothy mix of simmering water, cacao, chili, honey and spices like cinnamon as well as aromatic flowers. They believed the benefits included wisdom, superhuman powers, virility and spirituality. Cacao is said to relax arteries increasing blood flow while lowering blood pressure. Theobromine in cacao acts as a mild stimulant, like a softer version of caffeine in tea, perhaps this helped the ancients with mental clarity or feeling superhuman. The flavonols in cacao are said to help protect skin from sun damage and some cosmetic and ritualistic applications included applying to the face for its antiaging properties.
