|There's sweet news about hot cocoa: the popular winter drink contains more antioxidants per cup than a similar serving of red wine or tea and may even be a healthier choice.|
|Researchers at Cornell University, located in Geneva New York, have shown this through recent study which adds to growing evidence of the health benefits of cocoa and points to a tasty alternative. Yummy hot cocoa in the quest to maintain a diet rich in healthy antioxidants, chemicals that have been shown to fight cancer, heart disease and aging, the researchers say.|
|Although the researchers say antioxidants are important for good health, nobody knows the exact daily amount required per person—this stated by Chang Yong Lee, Ph.D., head of the study and a professor of food chemistry in Cornell's Department of Food Science and Technology.|
They do agree however a cup or two of hot cocoa every once in a while can provide a delicious, warm and healthy way to obtain more antioxidants!
