    Benefits of Jamaican cocoa tea

    If you've had the chance to browse through our other blog posts, you'll know and understand that raw/organic ingredients/food sources usually offer a very large amount of nutrients. 

    In this case, the benefits this tea will undoubtedly provide you with can be attributed to the cinnamon, nutmeg and the chocolate balls.

    All three of these ingredients are completely organic and they each provide the body with some incredible benefits, this can be attributed to the nutrients found in these ingredients. 

    So, without further ado, let's take a closer look at each of these three ingredients and the nutrients that are responsible for all the benefits! :)

    Cinnamon -

    • Cinnamon may reduce your risk of developing cancer! Cinnamon is packed with antioxidants. Antioxidants are incredibly beneficial to the body. They assist with numerous tasks, in this case, antioxidants help the body effectively formulate and maintain cell production, this in turn, lowers your overall risk of developing cancer.

    • A useful tool for lowering inflammation. Inflammation can be both good and bad for the body. This typically occurs through injury, illness and or poor dietary factors. In cases of chronic inflammation, adding this wonderfully nutritious spice to your diet can help to reduce your overall symptoms, therefore helping you live a happier pain-free life. 

    • Cinnamon can help prevent diabetes. Diabetes is a lifelong condition that occurs when the body either stops producing insulin or if it becomes resistant towards its effects. This is known as insulin resistance and cinnamon can help prevent this by improving the sensitivity of your cells towards the hormone. 

    Nutmeg -

    • Nutmeg is fantastic for detoxifying the body. Over the course of the day, the body is continuously infested with harmful substances and toxins. These toxins can be found in the air, in our foods and in our drinks. Luckily for you, the powerful antioxidants found in nutmeg assist the body with the removal of such chemicals. 

    • Pain-relieving properties. Those suffering from chronic pain might find themselves looking for natural and effective remedies to help reduce their symptoms. In this case, adding some nutmeg to your food and drinks can go a long way towards promoting physical and emotional well-being. 

    • Nutmeg may relieve symptoms of insomnia. We've all experienced it, that tossing and turning aspect of a poor night sleep. For many, this issue isn't a common occurrence, for others, it most certainly is. For those of you who suffer with this regularly, try adding this spice to your meals. It is noted that this seed produces calming effects on the body, these effects help to calm both your body and mind before sleep. 

    Cocoa -

    • Cocoa may improve brain function! An under-performing brain can greatly affect any quality of life. Memory, sleep, mood and general well-being to be specific. However, you can remove any of these worries by ensuring the regular consumption of cocoa. This delicious ingredient is known for having blood flow improvement properties, thanks to it's rich polyphenol levels.

    • Cocoa can increase feelings of happiness. Feeling happy is an incredibly essential part of our lives. A lack of happiness can drastically affect any and all aspects of our lives in a negative way. Fortunately for you, cocoa holds power to improve feelings of happiness and joy. The flavanols are thought to be responsible for this positive effect on our mood. 

    • Cocoa may protect you from cancer. Every second in the body, cells are repeatedly being killed off and replaced with newer identical cells. When this goes wrong, a cancer is formed. The flavanols found in cocoa not only produce mood-enhancing effects - as mentioned earlier, but they also help to ensure all bodily cells are formed correctly. This, in turn, lowers your overall risk of developing cancer.

    As you can now see, this tea truly does deliver some wonderful benefits. These benefits go in the way of both physically and mentally, it really can't get any better than that!

    So, what is it that makes this tea so favorable? Is it the health benefits? Or is there something behind the scenes we're not aware of?

    Let's take a deeper look at this tea so we can understand precisely why this tea has become so popular in recent years!

    Why is Jamaican cocoa tea so trending?

    There are only two reasons in this world that will have you deciding to consistently consume a food or beverage source, these two reasons being taste and nutrition

    Listen, at a younger age, we usually don't care about the consequences of our actions. This typically applies to all areas of our lives as a younger person, including nutrition.

    This is precisely why kids often opt for sweets, chips and or chocolate to satisfy their hunger because they taste good! However, as we age, a poor diet can end up taking a toll on our health...

    We can no longer live off a poor diet for days on end as we could in our younger years. When this becomes the case, careful thought towards the foods and beverages we consume must be considered.

    We will eventually have to sacrifice the so called good tasting foods for healthy and a bit more dull tasting foods to further improve and maintain our health.

    It's not really that healthy foods are dull but mostly that they have less sugar or salt, and when you are used to a higher intake of sugar and salt you tend to need more of them. But the process of getting used to healthier food happens relatively fast, usually about a week or two.

    It's a sad yet truthful fact, most deemed healthy foods simply don't taste quite as good in the when starting out... This factor alone makes it that much harder to stick to a carefully put together diet plan

    This is precisely what makes Jamaican cocoa tea so undeniably fantastic! This tea offers both sides of the spectrum with very little negatives and a large list of benefits as seen earlier on :)

    All in all, the tea offers a beautifully put together beverage that'll not only satiate that sweet tooth you can't seem to shake, but it will benefit both your mind and body due to the large number of nutrients you will be taking.
