The health benefits of dark chocolate
Thanks to unique antioxidants found naturally in the cocoa bean, dark chocolate has been recognized as a health food.
Chocolate contains more antioxidants than red wine or green tea.
Unsweetened cocoa powder can help prevent cavities.
Theobroma cacao is the Latin name of the “Food of the Gods.”
