Why not skip the chocolate bar and make your own hot chocolate using organic cocoa powder, almond milk and lo han or stevia.  Edward Martin revealed the benefits of chocolate – every woman’s dream come true.Dr Wright of Health Bytes answers a question which delves a little deeper…The sweet truth you probably didn’t know… sugar can be good for you!!!

Not the sweet, refined little white crystals you heap into your coffee every morning. I’m talking about a simple, safe, natural sugar. D-Mannose.

While the normal sugar we ingest on a daily basis spends a moment on the lips and a lifetime on the hips, heart, arteries…the body does not absorb D-Mannose at all. It means it has the ability to detach E-coli from the walls of the bladder (which cause bladder infections) and help us flush it from our systems. Safely, effortlessly and completely pain-free!

Is chocolate really good for you?

Q: It seems like I’m seeing more and more commercials telling me how good dark chocolate is for me. But it’s still chocolate! I’m just not buying it. What do you think?

Dr. Wright: Dark chocolate has become the latest media darling. And there is evidence showing that it offers some health benefits. Just like the one revealed last week, which concluded that eating approximately 50 grams of dark chocolate (which contains flavonols) on a daily basis helps in a small but significant degree to combat high blood pressure, insulin resistance, blood vessel dilation and LDL cholesterol in individuals with hypertension. The researchers referred to prior research that demonstrated the same effects in healthy individuals.

But what this study – and most of the other articles on this topic – didn’t take into consideration are the adverse effects of the refined sugar in dark chocolate. But you can. Why not skip the chocolate bar and make your own hot chocolate using organic cocoa powder, almond milk and lo han or stevia. (Just like Edward suggested)
