Cocoa is the dried and fully fermented seed of cocoa seeds.

It can be processed into a number of products including beverages and chocolate.

Cocoa is rich in minerals such as iron, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous, copper and manganese.

It is a good source of selenium, potassium, and also provides the body with carbohydrates, protein, and dietary fibers.
Below are the many health benefits of cocoa:

Reduces fatigue

Cocoa releases neurotransmitters like serotonin, anandamide, and phenylethylamine in the brain, which exert protective effects from oxidative stress and helps in combating chronic fatigue syndrome.

Good for the brain

The presence of major flavonols like epicatechin and catechin in cocoa help to boost brain activities.

It also reduces the chances of memory loss, brain damage and nuerodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer and Parkinson’s.

Aids digestion

Cocoa is rich in dietary fiber which adds bulk to and allows smooth passage of faeces, thus keeping the colon healthy.
