Enjoy a Chocolate Snack

Cacao has many great benefits. It is quite bitter by itself, so we usually prepare it using sugar. The healthiest chocolate has a minimum amount of sugar. If you want to enjoy the amazing health benefits of cacao, choose chocolate that has at least 70%. The healthiest option is cacao nibs, which can be ground and used in smoothies, puddings or eaten alone.

The health benefits of cacao include improving heart health, controlling cholesterol, lowering blood pressure and improving cognitive function. This is due to theĀ presence of antioxidants, flavonoids and polyphenols in the cacao.
