Is the secret to happiness in this cup of healthy hot chocolate?
Could your daily chocolate habit improve your health?
7 Ways your daily chocolate habit can improve your health, burn fat and boost your mood!
Hey New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Bailor here and I have a little problem and it involves this cup of hot chocolate… and more importantly you.
See I sat down to create this little video that shows the #1 benefit of getting more cocoa into your diet by enjoying a daily cup of healthy hot chocolate.
That’s when I ran into the BIG problem…
There are so MANY benefits of cocoa, hot or cold… I really did not know where to start.
I’ve got to tell you, those clever Mayans were really onto something powerful when they discovered cocoa.
When they weren’t busy developing written languages, deciphering complicated astronomical systems and fending off invaders, they took time out to invent sipping chocolate.
Even if the ancient Mayan version was a spicy drink served cold, we can still thank them for having created a delicious treat that has lasted, in some form or another, for thousands of years.
It wasn’t until the Spanish explorers brought chocolate back to cold climates of Europe in the 16th century that sweet warm versions of the elixir were consumed.
In fact, from the 16th to 19th centuries, hot chocolate was highly prized for its “magical” effects, it was even taken as a medicine.
Research from around the world continues to show us that the unique antioxidants found in cocoa help prevent cancer, heart disease, age-related macular degeneration and aging in general because they fight free radicals in the body.
Now let’s take a look at the top 7 benefits of drinking hot cocoa and let’s figure out which is #1 on your list!
Number 1 is something we all want more of in our diets… antioxidants.
According to a study conducted at Cornell University, the antioxidant concentration in hot cocoa is almost twice as strong as red wine. Cocoa’s concentration was four to five times stronger than that of black tea. (1)
That’s a lot of powerful antioxidants packed into a delicious package! It will be hard to beat that…
OK, Number 2 and this one is really interesting…
Professor Chang Yong Lee, the leader of the Cornell study, added that the “hot” in “hot chocolate” is important as well. See, even more of those health boosting antioxidants are released when it’s heated up. Wow, just one more reason to take another sip of that hot cocoa!
Big benefit number 3 is all about what you WON’T find in healthy hot chocolate…
Although a regular bar of chocolate has strong antioxidant activity, the health benefits are almost completely lost because of the large amounts of sugar and processed fats in “ordinary chocolate.”
See, while raw organic cocoa contains natural healthy fats, typical chocolate bars are saturated with toxic Trans fats. And when you use natural non-caloric sweeteners in your recipes, cocoa stays scrumptious without any sickening sugar.
Big benefit #4 is the amazing effect cocoa has on your cholesterol.
In a study published in The Journal of Nutrition, cocoa powder significantly decreased oxidized LDL cholesterol in men while increasing good HDL and decreasing the bad form of LDL cholesterol (2).
Here is why that is important. Oxidized LDL means that the cholesterol particle has reacted with free radicals. This makes the cholesterol particle itself reactive and capable of damaging other tissues such as the lining of the arteries in your heart. Not good!
It makes perfect sense that cocoa lowers harmful oxidized LDL. After all, cocoa contains an abundance of uniquely powerful antioxidants that make it into the bloodstream and protect cholesterol particles against oxidative damage (3, 4).
So again cocoa powder was found to lower harmful oxidized LDL levels. It also raised HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels.
Number 5 is even more good news about your heart health…
Cocoa is rich in flavonoids that help your body process nitric oxide, which is why hot cocoa can improve blood flow, help lower your blood pressure and improve heart health.
In fact the heart health benefits don’t stop there…
It turns out that we have several long-term observational studies that show a fairly drastic improvement in many critical areas of heart health.
In a study of 470 men, cocoa was found to reduce the risk of cardiovascular death by a whopping 50% over a 15 year period (5).
A study in the journal Clinical Nutrition revealed that eating cocoa 2 or more times per week lowered the risk of having calcified plaque in the arteries by 32% (6).
Another study published in that medical journal showed that eating cocoa over five times per week lowered the risk of cardiovascular disease by 57% (7).
Want to protect yourself and your loved ones from the #1 cause of death in the world?
According to the research, cocoa may be one of your best friends when it comes to dodging heart disease!
And here is where things get really exciting, these last two are the miraculous effects that cocoa has on your brain. I think I saved the best for last, because, drinking hot chocolate may even boost your mood and help cognitive function!
Benefit #6 is how the high levels of potent flavonoids found in cocoa boost brain power. These powerful flavonoids actually increase the blood flow and oxygen to the brain. Since dementia is caused in part by a reduced flow of blood to the brain, researchers think it could be treated with cocoa.
For instance, a new study conducted at Tufts University conducted in older adults with hypertension and/or diabetes found that drinking just two cups of cocoa per day for a month was associated with significant improvements in cognitive function and blood flow in the brain.
The potential that cocoa flavanols might improve blood-vessel function in the brain was further supported by data from several other studies presented at the 2013 meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). (8)
And finally here is my pick for the #1 benefit…
Drinking a delicious cup of hot cocoa actually is proven to boost your mood…
In a 2013 study, published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, researchers found that…
“The self-rated calmness and contentedness were significantly increased in those subjects drinking the high-dose polyphenol dark chocolate drink compared to those drinking the placebo.” (9)
Many current studies are looking at this same question. For now, however, it looks like a safe bet that a delicious daily dose of cocoa can lift your mood.
So you can see why it’s tough to pick just one benefit of enjoying this mayan superfood indulgence everyday since it has so many benefits for both the body and brain.
So what do you think, what’s the biggest benefit of enjoying a daily cup of cocoa for you?
That cocoa can improve heart health while it improves blood flow, and helps to lower your blood pressure?
Maybe you love that cocoa it is filled with twice as many antioxidants as red wine, and four to five times that of black tea!
Raw cocoa could just be nature’s most potent source of these age-defying free-radical fighters!
Or, like me, do you just love how cocoa makes you feel calm and relaxed and how it increases the bloodflow to the brain potentially improving your ability to think and focus.
Yes, it seems the Mayans were really on to something with taking the cocoa bean and preparing it as a drink. Cocoa really is a health miracle when you look at the latest research.
But somewhere along the line these amazing health benefits were lost in the typical cup of “hot chocolate”…
The truth is that commercial instant hot cocoa products you find on store shelves are a fattening mix of sugars, GMOs, unnatural preservatives, artificial flavors and toxic chemicals. In addition, the cocoa is chemically processed in a way that compromises the vast majority of its benefits.
One of the most popular mixes, for example, lists a low-quality form of cocoa 4th on the list of ingredients…and…they chemically compromise it by processing it with alkali! All after saturating you and your loved ones with hormone damaging and belly bulging ingredients like… sugar and corn syrup, followed by a toxic trans fat hydrogenated oil!
But not to worry, making your own healthy versions from scratch couldn’t be easier as I will show you in a second.
In fact, think about those 7 health benefits for a second and then ask yourself… are you getting enough of this tasty mood-boosting superfood into your diet?
And if you are not experiencing all of these delicious benefits of cocoa, then what you may need are some great recipes you can enjoy everyday.
Because let’s face it, raw organic cocoa can be used to improve the health benefits and taste of a long list of kitchen creations…. like….
Double Rich Hot Chocolate

Mayan Raspberry Sunrise

Strawberry Orange Cocoa Bliss
DEATH BY CHOCOLATE CAKE
