According to a RealAge article here, “Scientists may one day claim you need the stuff to be at your healthiest.
It’s a theory growing from a study of the diets of a small Indian tribe
in the Panamanian islands. High blood pressure is virtually unheard of
within the group. And tribe members drink three or four 10-ounce
servings of cocoa per day.”
The article continues to say that “dark chocolate is just about your only hope for chocolate that hasn’t had its flavonoids completely destroyed by processing.”
If you’re interested in healthy, dark chocolate products that haven’t been alkalized or dutched, thereby leaving more flavonoids intact, contact me. Info in my “About” page.
