Have you ever wondered if there was a better option to getting well or being relieved from a pain aside taking orthodox medicines?
Am I the only one who thinks of all the good times I had when I was fit on days where I am feeling sick or unwell? I am sure everyone has at a point in time.😃
However, having a remedy that comes in a form of a treat other than typical medicine can substantially ease the situation.
I’m recent times, there have been several advocates for people to not see food as just that which is eaten when hungry but also as a medicine.
Some ingredients such as onion, garlic, ginger and many others have been reported to have many medicinal value.
One other food which serves a medicinal purpose aside being a treat is cocoa.
Cocoa for many centuries was used as a medicine to cure various illnesses. Today it is promoted as a food that maintains good skin, heart and blood health.
Chocolates with cocoa content of 70% and above from research confer significant health benefits to consumers.
Amongst the 3 types of chocolates, dark chocolate contains the highest magnesium (about 16% of the daily recommended intake).
Cocoa powder has also been reported to contain substantial amount of magnesium which manages acute headache/migraines.
Natural cocoa powder is unsweetened, and has a subtly bitter taste. However, one needs just a teaspoonful in a mug of warm water. This makes it easy to drink, reaping its amazing benefits.
Other sweeteners can be added to cocoa powder to make more appealing. Including honey and a bit of milk can work the magic!
