Theobroma Cacao is a plant medicine and a superfood. Some contraindications for the use of pure cacao
- If you are pregnant or breastfeed, it is safe to drink cacao but adapt the dosage with a low dose ( < 20 grams per cup) because the theobromine will stimulate your baby.
- If you have heart problems, drinking cacao will stimulate the blood flow and increase your heart rate. Take only a few sips.
- If you are on high doses of antidepressants or using MAOI based and SSRI antidepressants be cautious. The tyramine and tryptophan present in cacao can counteract the medicine. Ask your doctor.
- Cacao is fatal to pets. Keep it away from them
