Healthy Hot Chocolate
Dark chocolate can help to fight disease. Dark chocolate and cacao nibs are high in antioxidants, which help fight free radicals that can damage the cells in your body. Two groups of antioxidants found in dark chocolate are flavonoids and polyphenols – and they’re found in greater amounts in chocolate than either tea or red wine.
The higher the percentage of cocoa in your chocolate bar, the greater the number of antioxidants.
