About Hot Cocoa

About Hot Cocoa
Hot cocoa is good for your. Sip a steaming mug of hot cocoa and you’ll get more disease fighting antioxidants per cup than a similar serving of red wine or tea, report the researcher.

Cocoa’s antioxidants are almost two times stronger than red wine, two to three times stronger than green tea and four to five times stronger than black tea.

Antioxidants, vitamin C and E and beta carotene are widely believed to fight cancer, heart disease and aging. They may even help slave off the memory robbing Alzheimer’s disease.

The study is the most extensive comparison yet of the total antioxidant content of coca, wine and tea, arguably the world’s most popular drinks after water.

There’s just one problem with all this: scientists know antioxidants are essential for our good heath and longevity but thy don’t yet know how much we need everyday.

If you want to get antioxidant dose from something sweet, there is nothing better than hot cocoa, And the key word here is “hot.”

There is a saying that hot is better than cold. For some reason, when cocoa is heated, more antioxidants are released than when it’s cold.
