Studies confirm Cocoa’s benefits

More studies have confirmed something most of us already knew, that cocoa, the main ingredient in dark chocolate is quite good for you, being an antioxidant, antiinflammatory, and direct benefits such as a reduction in stroke potential.

The easiest way to get these benefits is to eat a square of 85% or 90% dark chocolate (about 50 calories) every couple of days.  Raw cocoa powder can be added to shakes, smoothies etc, however, be aware it’s very concentrated and bitter, so you don’t need a lot, probably a teaspoon to a tablespoon.
