It’s all about those Flavinoids
So what are the flavinoids and why are they so good for you?
Flavinoids are plant pigments responsible for many of the health benefits of many fruits and medicinal plants.
Flavinoids in chocolate:
- are antioxidants that are especially important in protecting against damage to the lining of the arteries from high cholesterol
- prevent excessive clumping of blood platelets that cause blood clots
- they also work like a very low dose of aspirin to prevent blood platelets from becoming too “sticky”
