"Eating a rich, decadent piece of chocolate cake isn’t going to provide the same health benefits of cocoa that is minimally processed which retains the highest levels of natural flavanols, that contain the highest concentration of antioxidants."

Although the concept of brewing cocoa is still relatively new to most people today, the consumption of brewed cocoa actually dates back over 2,000 years to ancient Mayan and Aztec civilizations. Revered for its great taste, medicinal and mood enhancing properties; kings, priests and nobility drank brewed cocoa daily. These ancient civilizations valued cocoa beans so much that it became a form of currency.
Today with the increased attention and research available on the health benefits of cocoa more people have become aware of its health benefits. However confusion as to which types of cocoa contain the most health benefits still abounds, after all, not all cocoa is created equal. "Eating a rich, decadent piece of chocolate cake isn’t going to provide the same health benefits of cocoa that is minimally processed to retain the highest levels of natural flavanols, which contain a high concentration of free radical fighting antioxidants." Stated Karen M. Soika, M.D., an anti-aging medicine specialist who owns the Cosmetic Medic practice in Connecticut and New Jersey.
