Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) March 11, 2010
Eastbluff Trading Co., makers of the highest quality organic Venezuelan cacao products on the market today, announced at Expo West the introduction of 100% organic cacao tea, the first pure chocolate tea. Containing over 300 compounds including tannins, catechins, polyphenols and other antioxidant agents and Theobromine, Eastbluff Trading Cacao Tea provides the sweet aroma of dark chocolate with many of the same health benefits.
Unlike traditional hot cocoa mix, East Bluff’s innovative patent pending process uses the delicate fibrous shell around the cacao bean, which carries many of the same antioxidant agents, and magnesium and potassium as well as a high dose of Vitamin D, which the cacao bean does not have.
As the first pure chocolate tea, Organic Herbal Cacao Tea provides the following health benefits:
- Boosts energy & stamina: Theobromine which is found in cocoa and chocolate provides a mild, long lasting stimulant with a mood improving effect to help you maintain energy, stamina, and vitality.
- Caffeine Free: Cacao tea is similar to green tea in its catechin and tannin levels as well as a caffeine free herbal tea.
- Immune system support: Antioxidants are free radical scavengers that help defend healthy cells, protect the body and support overall wellness.
- Promotes a healthy heart: A daily dose of antioxidants has been shown to ward of free radicals that have been shown to contribute to various forms of cardiovascular disease.
- Antidepressant: Theobromine naturally raises serotonin levels and increases feelings of well-being.
