I have been hearing sweet news about chocolate lately! :)
Chocolate has always been a sinfully delicious dessert that we should always take in moderation… *sigh. We have been educated that chocolate is bad – bad for your sugar level, bad for your teeth, bad for your skin, bad for your health.
However, what we used to believe can be dispelled! Thank god for the many researches that have been conducted for the past years.
Before you get too excited, you must always remember to practice moderation, even if they say chocolate can cure acne. Too much of a good thing may not be too good at the end.
So, what’s the scoop? Scientific studies have found that cocoa bean can do amazing wonders to your beauty and health.
Raw cocoa bean is now proven to be the most potent antioxidant superfood! To put in simple term, cocoa has more phenolic phytochemicals and a a higher antioxidant capacity than teas and red wine. Cocoa provide more than 21 times the free radical protection of green tea. This definitely provide significant protection to our health.
To add more sweetness to this, cocoa is the richest source of magnesium of any common food! Magenesium is vital for over 300 enzyme systems in the body – more than iron and zinc combined. Ironically, nearly 70% of the population is deficient in magnesium!
Symptoms like abdominal bloating, breast pain, headaches, fatigue, fluid retention, mood swings, insomnia and anxiety are all symptoms of magnesium deficiency and PMS! But no worries, cocoa bean can help!
I know the cocoa is very beneficial and it is now known a superfood, that doesn’t mean you can obtain its power from any chocolate product from the supermarket shelve. Unfortunately, most processed food have deplete the natural benefits of a raw ingredient.
But not all hope are lost, we still have Berry Radical that contains the pure and powerful nutrition of the cocoa bean.
