Pure dark chocolate, decadent and delicious, also has many health benefits.  The cocoa bean is loaded with antioxidants, more than blueberries,red wine, green tea or broccoli (ugh!(.  Studies show that antioxidants found in cocoa may decrease  LDL’s (bad cholesterol), increase HDL’s (good cholesterol, reduce high blood pressure and lower the risk of certain types of cancer.

Increased blood flow via vasodilation helps reduce the buildup of platelets which are a major contributor to heart attacks and strokes.

An increase in insulin sensitivity has been shown to be beneficial to those with type 2 diabetes.  I am a type 2 diabetic and that is why I satisfy my chocoholic nature with this dark chocolate.  One third of the fat in chocolate (from cocoa butter) is oleic acid, a monounsaturated healthy fat also found in olive oil.  Another 2/3 is stearic acid, a saturated fat which has shown to have no adverse effect on cholesterol.

And when you add chia to our dark chocolate you have a powerful force of antioxidants working for you while you enjoy your (our) chocolate.  but if you like blueberries we have dark chocolate, chia and blueberries!
