Cacao supplement questions
Q. What time of day should one take a cacao supplement pill?
   A. Early part of the day is best, we suggest you not take a cacao supplement after early afternoon.

 

Q. Is it okay to take a cacao supplement daily?

   A. People consume cacao and chocolate products on a daily basis without apparent problems, so it seems that cacao daily use should be safe. But, it still may be a good idea to take a day or two off a week.

 

Q. What's the maximum number of cacao powder pills a person can take daily?

   A. Each person is different but we don't see the need to take more than four capsules a day. If you notice being restless or irritable or anxious, just like having too much caffeine, then take a break from the cacao supplement and resume a couple of days later at a lower dosage.

 

Q. I understand cacao supplements have good antioxidants, are they more potent than resveratrol? Which is better?

   A. We feel it is better to have a wide variety of antioxidants in low dosages in one's diet rather than one or two in high amounts. Both cacao and resveratrol have excellent antioxidant activity and it is difficult to say which is better for long term health.

 

Q. Is this cacao supplement pill considered to be a weight loss pill?

   A. We have not tested this cacao supplement as a diet pill. For an effective appetite suppressant, see Diet Rx pill.

 

Caffeine content
Q. Any idea how much caffeine is in a 500 mg capsule?
   A. We have not measured the amount of caffeine in the product but it is small since the capsule is only 500 mg total of all substances present in cacao bean.
