If you're already a self proclaimed raw cacao connoisseur you most definitely know that there are many reasons to love raw chocolate, such as its:
• Off the chain antioxidant levels

• Ability to soothe menstrual complaints
• Ability to help build bones and blood
• Natural muscle relaxing effect
• Stimulative and energizing effect of naturally occurring caffeine and theobromine
• Deliciously rich, complex flavor and absolute YUM factor!
Hard as it may be to comprehend, though the benefits of raw cacao stand alone, they can in fact be further improved upon! Since ancient times people have been utilizing cacao as a transport system for other medicinals. This is in part due to its effect on circulation and energy within the body. Cacao has a very stimulating and "opening" effect within us. However, chocolate also happens to be a down-right delicious treat making it an even more ideal candidate for delivering medicinals to us. Sunbiotics brand has already caught on with this overall concept, infusing tasty snacks like raw organic freeze dried almonds with a blend of potent microflora.
Well they've just taken it to a whole new level by creating the Worlds 1st raw probiotic infused chocolate bar!
