I know just the picture alone can make you want to go out and buy a bar of chocolate. But I have just realized that I have not yet written about the health benefits of chocolate. Derived from the Cacao tree chocolate is not only an aphrodisiac but it protects the body from aging because it contains large amounts of antioxidants, which are converted from the flavonoids (dark chocolate contains the more antioxidants than any other chocolate…the blacker the berry the sweeter the juice, had to go there). There has been numerous research done on chocolate and the two most alarming facts is that one small bar (yes I said small bar) of dark chocolate each day can reduce blood pressure, in people with high blood pressure and dark chocolate can reduce bad cholesterol by up to 10%. Alarming facts from a sweet eh!!!!
