      The Cacao is antioxidant rich, high in flavonoids, which are essential to a healthy cardiovascular system.  Cacao provides a natural form of iron for a natural energy boost.

      The avocado provides heart healthy monounsaturated fats as well as a good amount of vitamin B5 and Vitamin K.  Avocados are known for promoting heart health, regulating blood sugar and are believed to potentially offer anti-cancer benefits, specifically when it comes to cancer of the mouth, skin and prostate gland.
