The Health Benefits of Cocoa Nibs

Snacking on Cocoa Nibs improves your mood, increases your energy, and lowers your appetite for fatty unhealthy foods – to list just a few health benefits. 

What are cocoa nibs?

Cacao nibs or cocoa nibs are perfectly roasted cocoa beans separated from their husks and broken into small pieces. Cocoa nibs are the essence of chocolate. \Eating cocoa nibs brings all the benefits of adding chocolate to a diet (without any of the drawbacks of sugar, milk, and fat).  A 1 oz. serving of cocoa nibs contains only 130 calories and provides 10g of carbohydrate, 4g of protein, and 12g of fat. Studies have proven that cacao has twice the antioxidant levels of red wine and three times that of green tea. Cacao nibs contain 10 grams of antioxidants per 100 grams of beans. Health consequences of including cocoa beans in one’s diet can be decreased blood pressure; improved circulation; better protection from free radicals and, better digestion. 

Cacao Nibs are a rich source of magnesium which helps relax nerves and muscles, builds and strengthens bones and keeps blood circulating smoothly. Cacao Nibs also contain substances that enhance physical and mental well-being such as  dopamine and anandamide (also called the “bliss” chemical.)

Promptly after consuming cocoa nibs, one can notice increased energy; improved mood (thanks to a key element found in cacao which helps serotonin and other neurotransmitters to circulate longer in the brain), and decreased appetite. That is, a feeling of well-being and satisfaction. 

The best way to consume cocoa nibs is to add them to smoothies, cereals, and oatmeal. True chocolate lovers will simply eat them by a spoonful. 

Sprinkle them freely when baking cookies and cakes to add texture and crunch. Add them to the breakfast cereal mix and you’ll feel energetic and full of life for the whole day.
