Chocolate-lovers rejoice! Cocoa is a functional food packed with more than 600 phytonutrients that have important health benefits.
Researchers believe much of cocoa’s credit is due to its rich concentration of a family of phytonutrients called flavonoids. These compounds have been shown to promote a healthy heart, reduce the effects of aging, boost the immune system and even protect cellular health.
The Health Benefits of Cocoa
And if you notice you feel especially joyous after indulging in a piece of dark, decadent chocolate, it’s not your imagination. Cocoa helps improve your mood by boosting endorphins – feel good neurotransmitters in your brain.
There’s something else that cocoa does that you won’t see or feel. Well, at least not immediately. It fights free radicals – those health-harming, youth-stealing agents we all want to stop in their tracks. With cocoa offering twelve times more antioxidant power than blueberries, you can literally savor your youth with the power of cocoa.
Here at Wellness Bakeries we use organic cocoa that has not been “Dutch processed” (treated with alkalizing agents) which can slash the antioxidant value in half. With a heaping helping of euphoric, antioxidant-rich cocoa in our Chocolate Bliss Cake, Better Brownies, Dark Chocolate Ice Cream and Drinking Chocolate – the pure chocolate flavor will have you coming back for more.
