Is chocolate good for you? in 1793, Carl Linnaeus called it the food of the God. Cortes who brought cacao from South and central America considered than “a cup of cacao permits a man to walk all day without food”. Cacao is one of the most complex food on the planet with over 300 chemical components. Is chocolate good for you? sure in its  original raw form.

Is chocolate good for you? Antioxydants for health

Raw cacao contains the highest antioxidant levels among any food, by weight it has more than red wine, acai, blueberries and goji berries combined. Antioxydants protect us against age related disease and our DNA from free radical damage.

Highest natural source of magnesium

Chocolate is absolutely precious in this respect as most of us do not have adequate levels. Magnesium is in fact the most deficient mineral in the western diet. Cardio vascular diseases are the number one killer before cancer, studies show a link between heart attacks and magnesium deficiency. Magnesium helps our muscles and blood vessels to relax and improves bowel movements.

Cacoa is also perfect for jet lag, shift workers or anyone needing their mind at peak performance (don’t we all need that?). Is chocolate good for you: it helps us stay focus thanks to its content of Phenylethynamine, which is the chemical we produce when we are in love. So is chocolate really good for you ? Certainly!

Least but not last: chocolate gives this zing as long as it is not is heated as many of the “feel good” chemicals are destroyed by heat.is-chocolate-good-for-you

Is chocolate good for you: yes because it does include magical ingredients

  • Anandamine: an endorphin produced after exercise “the bliss chemical”.
  • Tryptophan a powerful mood enhancing amino acid essential for the production of serotonin, the happy hormone.
  • Also rich in copper, iron and manganese, it is excellent to fight anaemia.
  • With vitamin C and zinc, it helps with the  immune system.

Just a word, the healthy chocolate we are talking about is a raw dark chocolate, not all the treats and bars you currently find on the shelves of supermarkets and shops, which are nothing more than sugar, unhealthy oils and unnatural flavours. These are bad for you, addictive and make you fat.

If you add ASEA, your antioxidant booster to support your daily consumption of cacao you are going to feel amazing.
