A few chocolate facts…
Chocolate is a rich source of polyphenolic anti-oxidants (the same found in red wine and green tea), that may help prevent heart disease and cancer. Chocolate is rich in minerals the body needs to stay healthy such as magnesium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, copper and potassium. Chocolate contains natural chemicals that inhibit the bacteria that release the acids that attack teeth. Chocolate is a food that can be eaten regularly, but in appropriate quantities, as part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Chocolate contains endorphins that create a positive energy and feelings of happiness and euphoria
