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.

helps to regulate blood pressure
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.
