These nutritious Gluten Free Raw Cacao Balls pack a nutritious punch. Hemp seeds are a great source of plant protein and vitamin E, and they provide the perfect balance of heart healthy polyunsaturated fats and essential fatty acids (omega-3 and 6). Hemp seeds are high in the amino acid arginine and gamma-linolenic acid, which are both beneficial for lowering the risk of heart disease.
Cocoa is another fantastic food that helps support cardiovascular health. Cacao is a rich source of powerful antioxidants called phenols that help lower cholesterol and blood pressure.
