Raw cocoa powder raises my blood pressure. I have used high quality raw cocoa powder from a reliable source, with no sugar. Granted my blood pressure situation has been hard to treat and my MD says it seems different and more hard to treat than most high blood pressure seen in that practice. So the cocoa powder may well work for other people.

This is an incident where WebMD is providing false information. Cacao contains no traceable amount of caffeine. It contains theobromine which is a closely related stimulant. I am allergic to caffeine, but take raw cacao supplements to stay alert and focused at my evening job. I have also found it has been working as an appetite suppressant, and a mood elevator.

I found that Cocoa Powder seems to raise my pulse - temporarily -but perhaps I was consuming too much (approx. 1.5 tsp.- 1 to 3 times daily) -I will continue using it but in smaller amounts & not on an empty stomach or before bedtime - it gives me heart burn.

Cocoa has helped reduce brain fog helping me to think clearer, faster and also has improved short-term memory. After eating a small of amount of dark chocolate I feel as if the synapses of my brain are connecting the way they should. I also believe it helps with depression giving me a sense of well-being by reducing the stress that comes from trying to function through brain fog and short-term memory loss.
