Benefits of raw cacao:

Raw cacao is a rich source of antioxidant flavonoids that promote cardiovascular health and protect against toxins. The antioxidant flavonoids in raw cacao can help improve circulation, regular heartbeat and blood pressure. Additionally, they help the body repair itself and resist free-radical toxins. Raw cacao is most known for being a superfood that is a rich source of antioxidants, but it is also filled with a number of other beneficial nutrients. As a rich source of manganese, raw cacao helps oxygenate the blood. Raw cacao is also a rich source of magnesium, which helps in balancing brain chemistry. It is also rich in sulfur, which builds strong nails and hair, and promotes beautiful skin.

Neurotransmitters

Raw cacao promotes the release of neurotransmitters, which promote a positive outlook and bodily rejuvenation, and release feel-good hormones. Raw cacao raises levels of serotonin, a neurotransmitter, and acts as an anti-depressant that can help reduce symptoms of PMS. It also stimulates the secretion of endorphins, which produce a pleasurable sensation, and phenylethylamine which is a mild mood booster. It also releases anandamide which promotes elation and helps us feel good longer.

 Is Cacao the best antioxidant on the market? 

That all depends on what kind of cacao, where it is grown and how it has been treated. If it is certified as Organic Raw Cacao then it is an excellent source of antioxidants and if it is not then you are consuming a whole lot of chemicals from irradiation and spraying of chemicals which are standard practice in growing cacao beans.

In the ORAC chart raw cocoa powder is at the top of the antioxidant list with almost four times the amount of antioxidants as Goji Berries.

The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale was developed by the United States Department of Agriculture to measure the effectiveness of antioxidants to absorb free radicals that cause cell and tissue damage. The higher the ORAC score, the higher the level of antioxidants present in the food.

Even though cacao is much higher in antioxidants than goji berries, it does not mean that it is better. Why? Because consuming 100 grams of goji berries is quite beneficial whereas consuming 100 grams of raw cacao is too much in one day in one go, and the benefits would turn into side-effects. Cacao is simply very powerful on your central nervous system and with this much cacao, the content of oxalic acid would interfere with calcium retention. Yet, consuming 40 grams of raw cacao at the most or a 50 gram organic, dark, sugar-free chocolate is beneficial and quite enjoyable.

Shilajit. It is the #1 rated herb in Ayurveda.

 

 

Shilajit is a Powerful herb famous in Ayurvedic medicine. It is known as the Destroyer of Weakness. It’s name has been translated to the Conqueror of Mountains. With names like that you know it’s powerful stuff.

 It is spelled in a number of other ways silajit, shilajith, shilajeet, salajeet and is also called mumijo which is sometimes spelled mumio, momia or mumyo.

It is the #1 rated herb in Ayurveda. Why bother with herbs #52 and #100? Go straight to the #1 best herb out there.

According to legends it is believed to be the nectar of the gods and to have magical or divine powers. You may start believing these people were right when you start taking it. Historically it has been used as a cure-all. That’s means it’s good for everything! In a minute we’ll cover some of the uses and benefits shilajit has both traditionally and with current research.

Some of the many shilajit health benefits have been researched, although almost all of this research has been done with rats at this point. These are some of the diseases and benefits of shilajit.

  • Allergies
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Altitude Sickness
  • Antioxidants
  • Diabetes and Blood Glucose Levels
  • Digestive Problems
  • Energy
  • Fertility
  • Immune System
  • Learning
  • Ulcers
  • Recovery
  • Insanity
  • Epilepsy
  • Anxiety
  • Skin Diseases
  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • Edema
  • Cancer
  • AIDS
  • Asthma
  • Bronchitis
  • Obesity
  • Urinary tract problems
  • Pain

Shilajit is also known for its sexual effects. In fact it has one other nickname “Indian Viagra”. Shown to increase sperm counts and increase sex drive and stamina.

It’s said that if you consume for 3.5 kilograms successively you’ll add a year to your lifespan. Early writings on shilajit claim that its capable of increasing longevity up to 1000 years of age.

For athletes you’ll love the increased energy and recovery effects. Your ATP replenishes itself faster. The energy augmenting effects were on par with Coenzyme Q10.

For people looking to lose weight you’ll enjoy the detoxing properties and how you need to eat less on this stuff, yet get more from the food you do eat.

If you’re looking for the edge in your job or business the energy and nootropic effects are what you’ll love. Shilajit has shown to boost memory and speed of learning.

What do all these effects come from? Hard to say exactly. But shilajit does have lots of minerals including the trace ones in ionic form. It’s full of humic and fulvic acids which are amazing molecules themselves worthy of their own video. It’s loaded with triterpenes and many other compounds. As more research is done in the future they’re likely to isolate individual substances within shilajit and attribute the benefits to those. For now take it and enjoy the holistic effects.

Be warned that not all shilajits are created equal. Depending on the extraction and purification method, as well as where it comes from the quality can differ widely. According to Sushruta Samhita there are six types of shilajit based on the stone it comes out of as well as types from their locations.

Shilajit will range in color from different shades of brown to black. It’s commonly assumed that black is best but this is not always the case. For those of you looking for raw shilajit the effects have been research to be better in processed shilajit.

The standard dosage of shilajit is 250mg to 500mg per day. It has been noted to have no side effects up to 3 grams per kilogram of weight in rats. The only real contraindication seems to be with gout.

At superman herbs we are committed to this great herb. That’s why we don’t offer just one type of shilajit but multiple types and forms.

Like our classic and standard brown shilajit.

We have black shilajit mixed with triphala targeted primarily for detox and weight loss.

Shilajit pills and what is fast becoming our new favorite shilajit tar coming soon.
