Cacao, the key ingredient in this smoothie, is both a stimulant and a nourishing food. Although cacao contains a small amount of caffeine, as well as other stimulants including theobromine, it primarily provides energy through its potent antioxidants and other nutrients that promote blood circulation and oxygenation in the body.
Cacao also provides notable quantities of several "Good Mood" phytochemicals that increase the activity of beneficial neurotransmitters and endorphins, enabling us to feel better mentally.
