Hershey’s Unsweetened Cocoa is a Must for Everyone!

When you are at the grocery store, you may not select Hershey’s Unsweetened Cocoa, but after you read this blog you will.

We have all heard that dark chocolate is good for you, but why? It’s the amount of Cocoa in the chocolate. Dark chocolate has higher amounts of Cocoa than milk chocolate. Cocoa contains flavonoids. Flavonoids are our body guards against cardiovascular problems as well as memory loss according to recent studies. Consuming chocolate high is Cocoa will result in high antioxidants in our bodies that will fight against inflammation and free radicals that cause memory loss in our brains.

Researchers are saying that we should just go straight to the source and eat Hershey’s Unsweetened Cocoa instead of consuming chocolate with less than 96% flavonoids. You can add this powder to milk (skim, almond or coconut) if needed.
