Description

Theobromine, the alkaloid contained in the beans, resembles caffeine in its action, but its effect on the central nervous system is less powerful. Its action on muscle, the kidneys and the heart is more pronounced. It is used principally for its diuretic effect due to stimulation of the renal epithelium; it is especially useful when there is an accumulation of fluid in the body resulting from cardiac failure, when it is often given with digitalis to relieve dilatation. It is also employed in high blood pressure as it dilates the blood-vessels. It is best administered in powders or cachets. Grieve To learn the spirit of this sacred food-drug one should experience it free from the dramatically altering effects of sugar and other additives. Brew a strong infusion of this seed powder by taking two tablespoons and working it into one cup of cold water. Start this heating slowly and gently, gradually bringing it to the verge of boiling. Take the heat back down immediately to a simmer without actually boiling. Let simmer for three minutes. Drink hot, but keep it well stirred so as not to have the suspended material settle. Botanical Preservation Corps Constituents: Caffeine, flavonoids, phenylethylalamine, anandamide, magnesium, sulfur, oleic acid, theobromine, tryptophan, antioxidants, phenylethylalamine and anandamid.
