Cacao nibs (Raw) - Organic
An ounce of cocoa nibs contains 3 grams of protein, 10 grams of carbs and 13 grams of fat. Cocoa nibs are a good source of potassium, chromium, copper, calcium and zinc. Cocoa nibs are also a rich dietary source of magnesium, a mineral that many Americans lack. Magnesium is essential for circulation, muscle function and bone health, but it can't be produced by the human body. Eating cocoa nibs can help you meet the daily requirements for this mineral. Cocoa nibs might be able to improve your mood when you're feeling down. The flavonoids found in cocoa nibs are believed to have various cardiovascular benefits, including lowering blood pressure levels, reducing cholesterol levels and improving circulation. Flavanols, the primary flavonoid in cocoa beans and nibs, seem to improve blood flow to the heart and brain. They also make blood platelets less sticky, which reduces your risk of suffering from blood clots, strokes and heart attacks. Cocoa nibs also contain caffeine, which can make you feel mentally alert and less fatigued. This means that consuming cocoa nibs might give you a healthy boost of energy.
