Chocolate cravings can have different meanings; one of them is that your body needs magnesium! Magnesium is good for our heart and helps our muscles relax. Most people have a magnesium deficiency, so make sure to add magnesium to your diet.

Another reason why we crave chocolate is because we need love; chocolate is metabolized to serotonin, a hormone that boosts our mood  in those cases it might be better to go for a walk, water your plants, spend time with a friend.

Chocolate has a cooling energy, but, in excess, it has a heating energy.  It is a natural aphrodisiac (this word comes from Aphrodite the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation).

Cacao is a natural laxative. It soothes menstruation and supports the heart. It also connects s to our heart center.

Cacao goes very well with vanilla, also with cinnamon  nuts, cherries, aloe and blue-green algae.

4. Spirulina: Is considered the highest source of complete protein (65%) from all food. Its reach in chlorophyll and enzymes.

Spirulina has a blue tint on it due to the fact that it contains phycocyanin. It is a blood builder, contains as much iron as red meat.
