There is something truly therapeutic and satisfying about a piece of good pure chocolate melting in your mouth. There is actually nothing like this feeling so it is hard to compare.
It makes you happy, appreciating and thankful. It makes you smile from your heart. It can possibly prevent or cure a depression or even make you forget the foggy cold weather and the general lack of sunshine during the winter months. This is all because of its antioxidants strength and high mineral content. Or maybe this is simply because chocolate is a magical elixir no one can explain. And unlike many other foods is good for your physical body and your mental self as well.
Throughout history, chocolate has been valued more for its medicinal qualities than its delicious taste. For centuries, chocolate was not eaten in the bar form we know, but consumed as a drink. To the Mayans, Aztecs and Early-Europeans, the brew made from the cacao bean was a phenomenon of nature. These early chocolate-lovers were likely impressed by chocolate because of its mild stimulant value — it made them feel awake, alert and strong. Chocolate quickly gained a reputation as food vital for health.
Documents detailing Aztec life showed that chocolate was viewed as a medicinal marvel. But as sugar and milk were added to chocolate in later centuries, much of its medicinal value was forgotten.
Pure chocolate & wellness is an attempt to bring this magical superfood back into your diets. The store will offer many varieties of pure artisan dark chocolate made from different cocoa beans from all over the world. Our team will organize workshops and seminars on many health related topics, chocolate tasting and chocolate paring events.
