100% NUTRITIOUS TREAT
To celebrate the launch of our wonderful new TRUFFLELIXIR SERUM we’ll be sending out scrumptious 70% cocoa chocolate with all orders for a limited period of time.
We know our Truffle Therapy product contain Cocoa which is great for the skin and here’s some of the reasons why dark chocolate is good for our diets too …
70% Cocoa Dark chocolate is loaded with nutrients that can positively affect your health (in small doses)
Made from the seed of the cocoa tree, it is one of the best sources of antioxidants on the planet.
Studies show that dark chocolate in moderation can improve health and lower the risk of heart disease. It also contains a decent amount of soluble fibre and is loaded with minerals.
A 100g bar of dark chocolate with 70% cocoa provides on average:
10gs+ of fibre.
60%+ of the RDA for Iron.
50%+ of the RDA for Magnesium.
80% of the RDA for Copper.
90%+ of the RDA for Manganese.
It also has plenty of potassium, phosphorus, zinc and selenium.
The fatty acid profile of cocoa and dark chocolate is excellent too. The fats are mostly saturated and monounsaturated, with small amounts of polyunsaturates too.
Dark chocolate also contains stimulants like caffeine and theobromine, but is unlikely to keep you awake at night as the amount of caffeine is very small compared to coffee.
Sounds good right?
But before you run off and trade your healthy choices with daily bar of anti-oxidants be aware that all with all these nutrients also come with 600 calories and moderate amounts of sugar. For this reason, dark chocolate is best nibbled in small quantities – like a mini 5g Temple Spa bar with an average of 30 calories. Yummy!
