Did you know that one of the most common household baking ingredients is actually one of the more healthy natural flavours?
Don’t worry, neither do many people, but the fact is that Cocoa powder has been proven to have many amazing health benefits.
Now there is a twist, these benefits are pretty much cancelled out by things such as sugar, sweeteners or other artificial flavours or chemicals, which is why a hot chocolate is maybe not the best drink to have on a daily basis!
However, if Cocoa is simply mixed with a glass of milk, or perhaps into a morning coffee, the health benefits really begin to shine.
Cocoa has been proven to:
- Contain polyphenols, which are responsible for reduced inflammation, lower blood pressure,
- and improved blood sugar and cholesterol levels
- Natural antioxidant
- Immune system booster
- Improves blood flow to brain, and thus brain function
These are only a few of the many benefits, which is why we decided to make our Curcumin/Cocoa blend in the first place, to make it easy for you to implement both cocoa and curcumin into your diet without any hassle.
A few other ways to take cocoa are:
- Dark Chocolate
- Granola Bars

Remember, doing your own research is also one of the best ways to find out what is right for you.
