  • Cocoa is full of abundant goodness and health benefits. It is full of high amounts of flavanoids so it is a great source of antioxidants. Flavanoide help maintain a healthy brain. It has neuro protective benefits and enhances memory and learning. Flavanoids lower blood pressure and improves the elasticity of veins and blood vessels. the antioxidants causes stimulation of nitric oxide and control the pressure of blood vessels. Cocoa powder contains high amount of alkaloids which enhances breathing flow and cures chronic allergies and soothes the breathing process and brings relief to those suffering from breathing problems like asthama. It is good for heart and prevents fatal blood clots from blocking the blood vessels. Hence they can avoid severe cardiac problems. It is good for skin. Flavanoids decreases the hazardous effects of ultraviolet rays and also reduces scaling and roughness of the skin. It enhances skin elasticity and density and brings healthy glow to the skin. It can cure prostrate and colon cancer and prevent the development of cancer cells and growth of healthy cells. It fights constipation , control diabetes and assist with treatment. it can improve insulin resistance and level of glucose in the body. It has hypocholesterolemic and hyperglycemic effects. There is a reduction of LDL cholesterol , glucose level , and triglycerides in the blood. It increases insulin sensitivity and hypermetabolism of glucose and so regulates sugar levels. And consuming cocoa can relieve stress.
