Forget Zumba eat Chocolate and an Apple!

Forget Zumba eat Chocolate and an Apple!

Dark chocolate that is. Good, organic, high cocoa content, raw if possible, dark chocolate.

You may know cocoa contains hundreds of health promoting chemicals. And you may know cacao’s benefits are related to the naturally occurring compounds in the bean including epicathechin, which is a flavonoid, and resveratrol, which has both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties…(hmmm…maybe after eating your dark chocolate you can then enjoy your Zumba class afterall!)

But did you know that according to Dr. Joseph Mercola, MD, that recent science also shows resveratrol is an exercise mimic and produces similar benefits as exercise to the mitochondria? Whoa! And according to a paper published in the journal of Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity, “Cocoa contains about 380 known chemicals, 10 of which are psychoactive compounds…Cocoa has more phenolics and higher antioxidant capacity than green tea, black tea, or red wine…These phenolics from cocoa may protect against diseases in which oxidative stress is implicated as a casual or contributing factor, such as cancer.” Whoa!!

Ok…so what does this all mean…it means premium, high cocoa content, organic , raw dark chocolate, with no or very low sugar content preferrably natural sugar has many health benefits. Our family is partial to the Pacari brand Premium and Organic Ecuadorian Arriba Dark Chocolate…especially the Pacari 100% Dark Chocolate which has an OUT OF THIS WORLD flavor, is smooth and luscious, and with no bitterness.
