Treat your heart to some cocoa: Its flavonoids are linked to some cardio perks, including lowering blood pressure, reducing LDL cholesterol, in addition to decreasing your overall risk for heart disease.
Cocoa is packed with antioxidants that assist in repairing skin cells and neutralize harmful free radicals.
Cocoa contains approx. 300 compounds, many of which have a positive effect on brain chemistry. Some of those compounds increase your endorphin and serotonin levels, both of which promote a good mood.
