Mmmmmmmm, Lovechock – happiness inside

Lovechock
Sheer pleasure needs no explanation…


Want happiness on the inside?

Rumour has it that it comes in the form of chocolate…

Specifically, Lovechoc-olate.

Tenderly cold grinding the best organic Equadorian cacao (rather than burning it) allows the chocolate to keep itsĀ  antioxidant flavanoids which, we are informed, are otherwise known as love-chemicals.

The chocolate is then sweetened with coconut blossom nectar and comes unadulterated with no dairy, soya or gluten.

As a result, the flavour, no matter what the variety, is intense. But for your pleasure Lovechock comes in 5 vegan flavours:

  • Pure/Nibs
  • Almond/Fig
  • Goji/Orange
  • Pineapple/Incaberry
  • Mulberry/Vanilla

Richly coloured fruits can reduce blood pressure

Who’d object to some more blueberries or strawberries? Now, you may have good reason to eat them.

Richly coloured fruits contain flavanoids which help to prevent high blood pressure.

High blood pressure, of course, is bad and can lead to heart attacks or strokes, and also kidney and eye problems. It tends to be more of a problem as we get older, but is best prevented when we are young.

Diet is the new wonder drug when it comes to high blood pressure. It is worth consulting your doctor about changing your diet if you want to reduce your blood pressure.

But studies which focussed on the eating of bright coloured fruit, particularly with a type of flavanoid called anthocyanins, showed that people under 60 could reduce their risk of high blood pressure by 12%. Other flavanoids: apigenin, catechin, and epicatechin (found in parsley and green tea) also reduced blood pressure for some people.

So, enjoy more blueberries, cranberries, and strawberries, by adding them to your cereal or dessert, and your body will thank you for it. And keep eating lots of colours throughout the day.
