From the Ancient and Sacred
The nurturing union of Ghee and Cacao
Ghee is a soft gold oil and it comes as a great gift. We have sourced the highest quality Ghee from our neighbors at Ancient Organics®. Made by cooking grass-fed cows' butter slowly and precisely, becoming pure and vibrant, a metaphor of nourished life. The water, sugars, and protein solids are removed leaving a highly enduring substance, delicious, and shelf stable for many, many moons.
Eating Ghee has numerous health benefits for the body and mind. It is lactose and casein free, meaning that most people allergic to dairy can still easily digest it. Ghee is rich in fat soluble vitamins A, D, and E and It helps balance cholesterol with it’s rich supply of HDL’s. Life force enhancing as an internal oil, it helps deliver nutrients to the bloodstream and keeps the body moving. High in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, it is no wonder that its life giving mystery has been revered in India for so many centuries.
Cacao is a dark abundance, worshipped around the world for it's sophisticated taste. In search of the perfect blend, we have teamed up with our friends at Sacred Chocolate®, the best known raw Cacao makers. They have perfected the low temperature process of a finely tempered chocolate, able to keep the nutritional value of an unroasted bean. Our cacao is ethically traded and is sourced from a small cooperative in Ecuador known for its prized heirloom Arriba Nacional variety.
The health benefits of unroasted Cacao are too numerous to list. But just a few are how it's vitally good for the heart, abundant in antioxidants and magnesium, which aid in lowering blood pressure and cholesterol. Theobromine, the caffeine like aspect of Cacao (derived from the Greek word Theobroma, meaning "food of the gods") is a body supporting stimulant and mood enhancer. With the highest plant based source of iron and calcium, it is also one of the best tasting things on this planet.
