ChocolateTreat Yourself to a Healthy Heart by Woodland Publishing is a 32 pages booklet about chocolate. Did yo know that a single dark chocolate bar contains more heart-healthy antioxidants. In fact, the bioflavanoids in chocolate help keep blood vessels healthy and help protect against high blood pressure, elevated LDL or bad cholesterol levels, and unhealthy blood clotting. Eating chocolate is such a pleasurable experience and explains why eating moderate amounts of dark chocolate can play an important role in promoting cardiovascular health.
Since the Mayans and Aztecs first ground cacao seeds in the tropical rainforests two millennia ago, chocolate has been celebrated as both the 'food of the gods' and reviled as a scourge that causes teenage acne and rots kid's teeth-among other myths. But today the ancients are being vindicated. Modern research has clearly demonstrated that dark chocolate, brimming with heart healthy flavonoids, may be one of the best things you can eat every day - in moderation.
