Natural chocolate – a healthy treat for every sweet tooth

Once in a while, indulging on eating chocolates is one of my fave days.  Honestly, i am not just a chocolate lover but a totally chocoholic.

Chocolates are derived from the theobroma cacao tree. It is Greek word for “drink of the gods”. The cacao pods are carefully processed through fermentation, drying, conching (agitation), roasting, and tempering (heating) to produce what we know as cocoa.

Maybe, you have already know the many benefits of chocolates in our body.  Organic chocolates not just a help in our environment and people but also a great source of antioxidant which is as much as you can find on a glass of red wine.  The phenols found on chocolate are well known to help the immune system and reduce the risk of cancer and even promote good heart and as it is more darker, a more higher levels of antioxidants can be found.  Dark chocolate  contains more flavanoids than green tea.
