Chocolate to help build muscles and fight ageing !! well, if you believe that you will believe anything. But, in actual fact according to a recent article on the health website http://www.nercola.com they say that there is ’emerging evidence during the past decade supporting the health benefits of resveratrol, a potent antioxidant produced by certain fruit and vegetables but also available from the plant (theobroma cacao tree) whose fruit produces cocoa beans’.

Apparently scientists have reported that dark chocolate, baking chocolate, and cocoa powder all contain ‘significant’ levels of resveratrol which if you did not know by now ‘helps protect your cells from free radical change, helps maintain healthy blood pressure levels, helps promote your healthy heart and cardiovascular system, helps improve blood vessel elasticity, helps promote healthy cell growth activity and supports your body’s natural defense system’. You can find a lot more about this on http://proteinpowder.mercola.com/whey-protein-bars.html?e_cid=20120308-a3-ProductTest-1

After reading this I know what I’m hoping for for Mothers Day, but don’t forget it has to be unprocessed dark chocolate and NOT milk chocolate.

    • I ‘adored’ it as a child and always wanted ‘plain’ chocolate easter eggs which everyone thought was strange but I must have had a tad too much as I do prefer milk, but for the sake of my health I shall just eat Dark from now on :)) x
