Want to know more about these minerals? Here are a few notes on how they can benefit your body and your well-being.
Dubbed 'the relaxation mineral', magnesium plays many roles in the body. In fact, it's involved in over 300 different enzyme reactions!
Magnesium is needed for:
Magnesium is also very easily depleted in our high-stress lifestyle. Medication use may also deplete magnesium levels. Many foods are deficient in magnesium, so even the healthiest eater may become deficient.
Luckily, you can get your magnesium needs in just a daily cup of cacao tea!
Many of us know iron is needed for energy. But iron is involved in many other essential mechanisms in the body.
Getting enough iron is essential for processes such as:
Ladies, you are at a higher risk of low iron, thanks to menstruation. Plant-based eaters also need to be conscious of consuming enough iron.
Think that you can only get enough iron from animal products? Think again! Our cacao tea is a delicious plant-based source of iron. Combine a cup of cacao tea with some legumes or quinoa throughout the day, and you can easily hit your daily iron needs.
Most people think zinc just helps you kick your cold or flu. But it's far more important than that – playing a role in most of the body's systems.
Consuming enough zinc is important for:
Zinc levels can be impaired by a number of factors, including stress and medication use. So, many people who consume 'enough' zinc may still have low levels. Even sub-optimal levels can produce symptoms in vulnerable people.
But by including a cup of cacao tea, you can boost your zinc levels in a natural – and tasty – way.
One of the lesser known minerals, copper is no less important than the others! It is needed in a good balance with zinc to support the body's systems.
Copper is essential for body processes such as:
Copper is a food that is found mostly in plant foods and organ meats, which the standard diet is low in. Although it is rare for someone to be very deficient, borderline levels can still make you feel miserable.
The good news is, you can get a big chunk of your copper needs in just one cup of cacao tea!
If you want to beat the bloat and keep your body happy and hydrated, potassium is your go-to nutrient. This mineral balances out sodium in the body, as well as being essential in many chemical reactions.
Potassium is needed for functions such as:
But despite it being so essential for everyday processes, many people don't consume sufficient potassium. This is because it's found mostly in plant foods. Overconsumption of sodium can also increase potassium needs.
Luckily, cacao tea is your tastiest option for plenty of potassium.
