I've been taking about 3 heaping TBS of raw cacao powder a day in warm unsweetened almond with stevia. It's a superfood, so I gotta have it.
We'll, I've been getting constipated with only 2 changes in my diet (this cocoa and MSM supplement). I'm dropping both to see what happens but I suspect it's the cocoa that's doing it. http://phillipmintonmd.wordpress.co...stipation/
"In South and Central America, raw uncooked cacao has been used as an important folk medicine since antiquity. It is used to treat diarrhea. "
It says that chocolate can be the cause "when an avid chocolate consumer suffers chronic constipation, especially if they consume raw or relatively unprocessed chocolate products"
