It's time to get your turmeric mojo on! Tumo means kundalini rising in the Tibetan language, which is an appropriate name for this very special chocolate. Sacred Chocolate's TuMo heart bar is a true breakthrough in nutraceutical delivery technology. This bar is a ginger and peppercorn dark chocolate at a 66% percent cacao content which includes a special patent pending curcumin extract from turmeric designed to greatly enhance the body's ability to absorb curcumin through a scientifically designed lipophilic delivery mechanism.
Each serving of TuMo raw chocolate contains 200mg of curcumin from turmeric root. HOWEVER, this is not like the orange powdered curcumin extract you see in supplement form such as in capsules. That form of curcumin unfortunately only lasts as bioavailable in the human body for about 1 to 2 hours. The curcumin in TuMo can last up to 12 hours in the human body for maximum absorption. Since curcumin is a fat soluable antioxidant, chocolate is the perfect delivery mechanism for it. This bar has been formulated and fine-tuned so that all all the curcumin is highly absorbable, synergistic, and works with the cacao (chocolate) to deliver superior flavor and nutrition. Both the ginger and peppercorns present in the formula act as synergistic pontentiators of the curcumin. As a food, this formula has the potential to deliver significantly greater health benefits than pill or liquid formulations of these super-nutrients.
As referenced in the scientific studies below, curcumin is known to promote healthy brain cells and overall cognitive function, reduce the body's inflammatory response and reduce pain as a result, improve cardiovascular health, improve mood, and enhance the health of skin.
The Longevity Bliss chocolate and TuMo are also designed to work synergistically together in order to create an accentuated effect of curcumin. Xanthohumol, found in our Longevity Bliss bar, significantly extends the half-life of curcumin in the human body.
Sacred MINI Hearts - The 1.8 gram heart shaped MINI is a bite sized chocolate perfect for portion control.
Sacred Chocolate is slowly stone-ground from bean to bar right in our custom chocolate factory in Marin County, California, which was designed from the ground up to make raw chocolate! Each mini heart is symbolic of the fact that raw cacao is so good for the heart. This delicious Sacred Heart chocolate bar is hand poured & hand wrapped. All Sacred Chocolate is prayed over by Sacred Steve, the Sacred Chocolate Oompa Loompas and others!
NOTE: This bar has NOT been certified organic. However, we are using the same organic ingredients that are being used in our certified organic bars.
