Cacao nibs prompt the brain to release serotonin, a feel-good hormone. Cacao nibs contain flavonoids, which are anti-inflammatory antioxidants that protect the heart and the arteries in your heart and brain. The cacao nib contains MAO which naturally suppresses your appetite. MAO is often added to weight loss products.
The properties in cacao nibs reduce cortisol in the bloodstream, heighten fat-burning and even improve the microbial activity in the gut. Cacao nibs are high in magnesium - Magnesium is vital for mental health and a healthy, active brain. Deficiencies in magnesium have been linked to ADHD, bipolar disorder, anxiety, panic attacks, and schizophrenia.
