The Secret of Kuna

The Kuna community, an indigeneous tribe located in Panama, is one of the few populations in the modern world that do not struggle with heart-related health conditions and cancer - which are the #1 and #2 of death causes in the United States.

The reason for this is in their unique diet - the Kuna drink 5 cups of Cacao a day.

Compared to nearby Panama City’s death rates, the Kuna show:

Diabetes - 3x less
Heart attack - 5x less
Cancer - 16x less
Stroke - 75x less

Furthermore, the Kuna don’t suffer from hypertension: people in their sixties have the perfect blood pressure of 110/70. All of this is because of flavanols, found in raw cacao, which are known to help maintaining healthy blood vessel function.
