Cancer and Heart Disease Fighting Cocoa?!

There have been reports for years that red wine and green tea are good for your health and can even help fight or prevent cancer and heart disease. This is due to the fact that they are loaded with phenols and flavonoids. A new study shows that there is a beverage out there that contains more of these disease-fighting ingredients than red wine and green tea combined. What is this super drink?! Hot Cocoa!

That is right, studies have shown that Hot Cocoa has 611 mg of phenols and 564 mg of flavonoids per cup. Red wine and green tea, combined only have 505mg of phenols and 210 mg of flavonoids. So next time you have a bit of a sweet tooth grab a cup of hot cocoa and know you are also doing something great for your heart!
