Gayleen’s Decadence (GD) is really passionate about bringing deliciously healthy options for chocolate onto the South African market.
GD chocolates are dairy-free and contain no cane sugar as only the very best local raw honey is used. They also contain no soya lecithin, preservatives, artificial colourants or flavourants.
And being UTZ certified means better cocoa bean farming practices with respect for people and planet, with no unhealthy spraying and no child labour.
Everything is handmade and hand-wrapped by GD’s team of local Capetonians.
Two main Ingredients:
Essential Mineral Magnesium: The primary source of the essential mineral magnesium is found in cocoa. Too many benefits to mention, enough to say that it is essential to our overall health & wellbeing especially where our heart is concerned.
Theobromine: Cocoa contains theobromine which is a heart opener, strengthening and improving heart function.
Anti-Oxidants: Cocoa is still one of the highest anti-oxidants which fight free radicals responsible, amongst other things, for aging & tissue damage.
Tryptophan: Essential in the production of serotonin which is our stress-defense shield – thus a mood enhancer.
Raw honey is an alkaline-forming food that contains natural vitamins, enzymes, powerful antioxidants and other important natural nutrients.
It has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. It promotes body and digestive health, is a powerful antioxidant, strengthens the immune system, eliminates allergies, and is an excellent remedy for skin wounds and all types of infections.
Raw honey can also stabilize blood pressure, relieve pain, calm nerves, and has been used to treat ulcers.
It is also an expectorant and anti-inflammatory and has been known to effectively treat respiratory conditions such as bronchitis and asthma.
