SOME RECOMMENDATIONS AND CONTRAINDICATIONS:
Recommended dose: if it is your first experience drinking ceremonial cocoa, it is more prudent to start with low doses between 10 g and 20 g maximum. Although the ceremonial dose is 40 g, we always recommend not to exceed 30 g per person per day. Furthermore:
- As Ceremonial Cacao is a pure and concentrated product, it has a powerful vasodilating action increasing blood flow. It may therefore not be indicated in the case of severe heart disease.
- Consult specialists if you are pregnant. Alternatively, halve the dose of ceremonial cacao.
- The stimulating and energizing effect of cocoa begins about half an hour after its intake. It is recommended to drink a glass of water before and after to promote absorption and digestion.
- If you put a high dose of cocoa by mistake, you can simply dilute it further with water or vegetable milk.
- It is also advisable to use water or vegetable drinks for its preparation, avoiding cow's milk.
- Do not exceed recommended daily doses
