      Benefits of Cocoa

      • Antioxidant Rich
        Cocoa is a rich source of antioxidants. According to studies, the addition of dairy in most chocolate products is blocking our ability to absorb the antioxidants found in raw cocoa, thus with plant milk or alternative, we can maximise on the benefits. The antioxidant properties of cocoa help to promote the regeneration of new skin cells.
      • Can Help Improve Brain Function
        The polyphenols found in cocoa can help blood flow to the brain, thus increasing brain function and reducing the risk of neurodegenerative disease.
      • May Help to Reduce High Blood Pressure
        Cocoa is high in flavanols, which are thought to improve nitric oxide levels in the blood, this can enhance the function of your blood vessels and help to reduce blood pressure.
      • Improves Skin Health
        Cocoa can be beneficial for the skin and has been used as a part of skin treatment in many ancient cultures. Cocoa can enhance the skin's elasticity by making sure skin cells are hydrated and oxygenated. 
      • May Help Treat Diabetes
        Cocoa can also help with regulating sugar in the blood stream. Consuming cocoa tea can help with managing type 2 diabetes as it can help improve insulin resistance in the body. 
      • Mood Enhancer
        Cocoa can help to combat depression, it contains anandamide which is an effective mood enhancer. Drinking cocoa can release endorphins in the body, endorphins are commonly referred to as the ‘happy hormone’.
      • Good for Oral Health
        Today’s processed cocoa uses additional ingredients which are mostly sugary and those are the main cause of tooth decay. However, raw cocoa has the opposite effect and can be extremely effective in protecting teeth enamel.

      WHAT IS SEA MOSS?

      What is Sea Moss ?

      Sea Moss, unlike Irish Moss, is more stringy, stick-like, and native to the southern, tropical Atlantic ocean, rather than the rocky northern Atlantic and Pacific Oceans native Irish Moss, which is darker, and more “leafier” than the Sea Moss. Our ‘Gold’ Sea Moss range is from the clear waters of St. Lucia and has adopted the ‘Gold’ name as it has a richer yellow/gold colour to the island’s neighbours Sea Moss (for example, Jamaica’s Sea Moss is slightly browner in colour than the St. Lucia Gold).

      H&H’s Sea Moss While it is a great meal additive, sea moss also excels in providing nutrition. It is the one organic food ingredient that is loaded with lots of minerals and vitamins; it has 92 trace minerals to be precise. Amazing right?

      Sea Moss gels have been used medicinally in Irish and Caribbean cultures to treat a number of ailments ranging from poor libido to coughs and infections

      Sea Moss includes Vitamins A, E, F, and K, calcium, potassium, and sulfur. It is also a naturally occurring source of iodine, which can be difficult to include in one’s diet through food alone, and is especially important for supporting healthy thyroid functioning.

      Rich in potassium chloride, Irish moss helps with congestion and mucus and holds anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties.

      It’s also thought to be good for dry skin and for skin conditions ranging from eczema to psoriasis, making it a valued ingredient for lotions and moisturizers.

       

      Irish Moss

      Irish Moss got its name when it was made famous during the potato famine in Ireland in the 1800s. Because people were starving and desperate for food, they began eating the red alga that was on the rocks. As a result, the name stuck. This alga is also referred to as carrageen moss because of its high carrageen content. The carrageen is used by scientists to make carrageenan which is a common food additive used to maintain stability within processed foods and as a thickening agent.
