Quick Tip #24: Chocolate therapy gets tick of approval
Editor in Chief of
Many of us have long considered chocolate our friend and therapist: the good news is, we were right all along.

assists in improving and stabilising moods
contains healthy fats which help optimise cholesterol levels

By real chocolate, we mean minimum 70% dark chocolate - check labels to ensure it's not loaded with milk and sugar. We recommend Lindt's 85% Dark Chocolate, or Green & Black's organic 70% and 85%.
Now you can enjoy your chocolate 'sessions' guilt-free, knowing you are consuming a truly therapeutic food.
