The Aztecs believed that the cocoa tree was a gift from God. And the use of its fruits helps spiritual insight, gives wisdom and physical strength. Even before the Aztecs, the Maya performed magic rituals and marriage ceremonies with a drink made from cocoa beans.
The conquistadors brought this magic drink to Europe in the 16th century. For a very long time, chocolate was an expensive treat for the elite because production was difficult and the ingredients were expensive. Chocolate contains about 1200 nutrients: calcium, magnesium, theobromine, flavonoids and natural antioxidants – catechins.
