Scientists told about the amazing healing properties of cocoa.
Finnish scientists have proven that consuming cocoa reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. This effect is associated with the content in the cocoa flavonoids, especially epicatechin, which reduces the effects on the body free radicals.
Experts say that cocoa along with the zest of citrus fruits, some fruits and berries, and onions, green tea and red wine is among the most valuable sources of flavonoids.
Solid chocolate, according to scientists, does not possess such properties due to the fact that a large part of flavonoids disappears in the processing of cocoa. In addition, solid chocolate contains a lot of sugar and milk, which could contribute to excess weight and related to different somatic diseases.
