Benefits of Ganoco (Cocoa Powder)

Cocoa powder is a popular ingredient made from roasted and ground cacao beans. It is a key component in the production of chocolate products and is used in a variety of recipes for its rich chocolate flavor.

Cocoa powder, especially the dark and unsweetened varieties, contains antioxidants called flavonoids, which may have potential health benefits such as improved heart health and cognitive function. It’s also a source of minerals like iron, magnesium, and calcium.

The major benefits of Ganoco : Cocoa Mix Powder product are:


1. Reduce High Blood Pressure:

Cocoa, in both powdered and dark chocolate form, is be able to help decrease blood pressure. According to research, cocoa contains flavanols, which can decrease blood pressure by boosting nitric oxide levels and blood vessel function. Cocoa with flavanol content ranging from 30-1218 mg may lower blood pressure by an average of 2 mmHg. Even little blood pressure reductions can significantly lower cardiovascular risk. Current guidelines strongly advise combining lifestyle changes and complementary treatments with the usage of traditional blood pressure drugs. [1]

2. Lower the risk of Heart Attack, Stroke and Cholesterol:

Cocoa appears to have additional qualities that can decrease your risk of heart attack and stroke. Cocoa can improve blood flow and reduce cholesterol. Eating up to one serving of chocolate per day may reduce your risk of heart attack, heart failure and stroke. [2]

Ganoderma Lucidum also has potential to reduce LDL cholesterol in vivo through various mechanisms. [11] G. lucidum was compared to a placebo in a randomized controlled experiment on a variety of biomarkers for antioxidant state, heart disease risk, DNA damage, immunological status, and inflammation, as well as signs of liver and renal toxicity. The researchers discovered that after ingesting G. lucidum, plasma antioxidant indicators increased, and that 10 days of supplementation enhanced cardiovascular biomarker profiles. [11]

3. Improve Blood Flow to Your Brain and Function:

Cocoa flavanols can help with neuron development, brain function, and blood flow and supply to brain tissue. They could help prevent age-related brain degeneration, such as Alzheimer’s disease. [3] Cocoa also can improve cerebral blood flow (CBF), inducing changes in processing of memory. Cocoa contains compounds like theobromine and caffeine, which can provide temporary increases in alertness and mental clarity. Some studies suggest that ganoderma may have neuroprotective effects and could potentially help with cognitive function and memory. [12]

4. Improve Mood and Symptoms of Depression:

Cocoa can improve mood and depression symptoms by lowering stress and increasing relaxation, contentment, and overall psychological well-being. Additionally, an older study in senior men showed that preference toward eating chocolate over other candies was linked to improved overall health and better psychological well-being. The combination of cocoa’s flavonoids and Ganoderma’s potential mood-enhancing effects could contribute to an overall improvement in mood. e antioxidant properties of both components can help reduce oxidative stress, which can be associated with mood disorders.[4]

5. Improve Symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes:

Some studies have shown that a higher intake of flavanols, including those from cocoa, can result in a lower risk of type 2 diabetes. These results combined with the more concrete positive effects on heart health indicate cocoa polyphenols may have a positive impact on both preventing and managing diabetes. The polyphenols found in cocoa and the potential anti-inflammatory effects of Ganoderma Lucidum may contribute to improved blood sugar control in individuals with type 2 diabetes. Cocoa’s flavonoids may enhance insulin sensitivity, which can help individuals with type 2 diabetes better regulate their blood sugar levels. Ganoderma’s anti-inflammatory properties may help mitigate chronic inflammation, a factor associated with insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes. [5]

6. Weight Control:

Cocoa products have been linked to weight loss, and incorporating cocoa in your diet may help you lose weight faster. Cocoa is suggested to aid by regulating energy consumption, decreasing appetite and inflammation, and enhancing fat oxidation and feelings of fullness. : Cocoa contains compounds that may help regulate appetite by promoting a feeling of fullness. This could potentially lead to reduced calorie intake, making it easier to control weight. ome studies suggest that cocoa may have a mild thermogenic effect, which means it could slightly increase calorie expenditure. This effect might contribute to weight management when combined with a balanced diet and regular physical activity. The antioxidants in Ganoco may help reduce oxidative stress, which can be associated with weight gain and obesity-related complications.[6]

7. Cancer Protective Properties:

Flavanols in fruits, vegetables, and other foods have piqued the interest of researchers due to their cancer-protective characteristics, low toxicity, and lack of negative side effects. Test-tube research on cocoa components have revealed that they have antioxidant properties, protect cells from reactive chemical damage, fight inflammation, restrict cell development, trigger cancer cell death, and assist prevent cancer cell spread. Both cocoa and Ganoderma contain antioxidants, such as polyphenols and flavonoids, which can help neutralize harmful free radicals in the body. High levels of free radicals are associated with an increased risk of cancer, and antioxidants may play a role in reducing this risk. ome research indicates that Ganoderma Lucidum may inhibit angiogenesis, the process by which tumors develop new blood vessels to supply nutrients. By limiting angiogenesis, Ganoco may potentially prevent tumor growth.[7]

8.Help People with Asthma:

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory illness that causes airway blockage and inflammation and can be fatal. Theobromine, which is comparable to coffee, may aid with chronic coughing. Cocoa powder contains around 1.9 grams of this chemical per 100 grams or 3.75 ounces and hence aids in lung dilation, airway relaxation, and inflammation reduction. Ganoderma Lucidum has been studied for its potential to modulate the immune system. In some cases, asthma symptoms are triggered or exacerbated by immune system responses. Immune system regulation may help reduce the frequency and severity of asthma attacks. Ganoderma Lucidum has been studied for its potential to modulate the immune system.

9. Better Muscle and Nerve Function:

Magnesium is essential for controlling muscular contraction and neuronal activity. The mineral also aids in the protection of nerve cells and the prevention of neurological problems. Because cocoa powder includes magnesium, it can aid in the maintenance of good muscular and neurological system function. The antioxidants present in cocoa and Ganoderma can help protect nerve cells (neurons) from oxidative stress and free radical damage, which can contribute to neurological disorders and nerve damage.[9]

10. Easy to include in your diet:

Include 0.1 ounces (2.5 grams) of high-flavanol cocoa powder or 0.4 ounces (10 grams) of high-flavanol chocolate in your diet for heart health. Adding cocoa to your foods can give them a delightful chocolate flavor. Ganoco can be consumed as Hot Chocolate, and with Milk, Cold Beverage, Smoothies, Coffee, Protein Shakes, Desserts, etc. While it has no sugar levels, it is also suitable for a diabetes diet plan.
