Which is alkalizing, helps with blood, nerve transmission, bones, and muscles. Regulates the heartbeat. Help enzyme systems to produce acetyl-choline, nor-epinephrine and serotonin. Opposite of Magnesium, as it is contraction.
Allows blood cells to receive oxygen better and lowers blood pressure, inhibits LDL or "bad" cholesterol formation. Which helps to make Hemoglobin and Red Blood Cells, and allows Iron to function in the body. It is also for the health of bones, nerves, blood vessels, immune system and lungs. It is a component of many enzyme systems. It is an antioxidant and wound healer, and promotes collagen production and helps to reduce production of grey hair.
Which is necessary for red blood cell production, is found in cacao nibs. An ounce of the raw nibs has six per cent of your recommended daily iron intake. Which is required for energy metabolism and oxygen carrying via hemoglobin in the blood. It is also a structural component of cytochrome in electron transport. Part of its enzyme and metabolic function is to assist in neurotransmitter synthesis, phagocyte antimicrobial activity, liver detoxification and synthesis of DNA, collagen and bile acids.
For cellular and electrical function (electrolytes) within cells, nerve impulses. It is important in cellular biochemical reactions and energy metabolism, synthesis of protein from amino acids in cell plus CHO metabolism plus glycogen and glucose metabolism and stored in the liver for future energy. Cardiovascular nerve impulses.
A mineral needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in our bodies with 272 milligrams per 100 grams. It's important for muscle and nerve function and keeps the heart rhythm steady. And is the most powerful stress relieving mineral and increases and promotes heart function and circulation. Good for muscles, bones, nervous system and brain chemistry and it is a very helpful support for women during times of menstruation and cramping. Magnesium is a muscle relaxant and alleviates stress.
Which is good for strong and healthy skin, hair and nails; a liver detoxifier, and supports healthy pancreas functioning. Some reports say that Cacao is so high in Sulfur that it also supports the detoxification of mercury.
Which is important for vision and eye health, the immune system, the skin, and it is a wound healer as well as an antioxidant and preventative to cancer.
Is for cellular production of energy in glucose metabolism, nerves, and synthesis of neurotransmitters.
For energy production and carries the hydrogen for production of ATP. Also needed for cell respiration.
Is a anti-stress. Helps in adrenal cortex function; production of acetylcholine; to synthesize fatty acids, cholesterol, phospholipids and porphyrin for the hemoglobin. It also helps prevent the aging process.
Supports the production of GABA. Helps in utilization of food to convert to energy and release in glycogen from liver and muscles. Helps antibody and red blood cell production and synthesis of RNA and DNA. Regulates fluids and electrical functioning in the body. Allergy regulator for histamine. Transport amino acids across intestinal mucosa to blood cells. Helps maintain hormonal balance. Supports myelin covering of nerves. Important during pregnancy. Very good for reducing PMS related problems. Also important during menopausal symptoms.
Which is needed for the absorption of Iron. It is stored in and maintains the health of the Pituitary Gland (the conductor of the hormonal orchestra), Adrenal function, the Liver and skeletal muscles. It is needed for the immune system, nerve impulse communication, also for the production of collagen for healthy skin and nails. It breaks down cholesterol and toxic chemicals, helps with the production of bile and hormones, and metabolism of metals. It is also an antioxidant.
Cacao Husks on the Bean are a very good source of this vitamin.
