Why Go for Wellness Chocolate?
May 22, 2014
Chocolate has become so ubiquitous and is available almost anywhere you go. However, we rarely stop to think whether what we are eating can actually be called chocolate and have the benefits that are associated with it. We’ve all heard about the “goodness” chocolate, but not everything that’s out there in the market can truly be called “chocolate” or carry any health benefits for you, let alone give your taste buds the delightful sensation associated with the real deal.
The truth about the health benefits associated with chocolate is that they come from a group of nutrients found only in the cocoa bean – cocoa flavonols. They’re a type of phytonutrients within the flavonoids family which represents a diverse class of naturally occurring compounds found in a number of fruits, vegetables and other plants. There is no other food on Earth that can match the unique blend of flavonols in the cocoa bean, which is the reason why scientists refer to it as the ‘super fruit’.
Amongst the benefits associated with flavonols is the positive effect they have on the vascular system. Studies have shown that they keep your blood vessels healthy, and with more elastic arteries, circulation stays healthy.
Our ChocoNat™ is super rich in naturally occurring flavonols. Unlike the mass produced candy type chocolate bars, that contain very little cocoa and are packed full of sugar, milk, artificial flavours and colourings, our ‘wellness chocolate’ has a delicious taste and contains high proportion of cacao rich in flavonols.
Amongst the top benefits associated with flavonols are:
Keeps your blood pressure and circulation at normal healthy levels
Flavonols act as antioxidants fighting the free radicals in your body thus keeping you healthier by slowing down the ageing process
Research is not conclusive yet but it is also believed that flavonols help in the fight against cancer, inflammatory and immune system diseases as well as some conditions of the digestive system.
As you can see, Wellness Chocolate is not only tastier but it’s much better for your health. So while you are indulging your senses with a delicious snack or desert, you can rest assured that it’s actually benefiting your body too.
