More good news about chocolate

Still not much cooking going on here. Gastro intestinal challenges mean there is not much more exciting than green tea and toast happening here. So while I am taking a cooking break I thought I would leave you with more good news about chocolate.

Not only is it good for your heart, but new studies show that good quality dark chocolate is also good for your brain! A special cocoa, designed to retain naturally occurring flavanols, could help maintain healthy brain function. This could eventually lead to new weapons against cognitive decline and dementia. Several studies have indicated that flavanols could improve blood vessel function. My February newsletter discussed the health benefits of chocolate... now here is another benefit to add to the list.
