DISCOVER THE AMAZING POWERS OF CHOCOLATE!

Did you know?. . .

• Known as Mother Nature's "food of the gods," the medicinal benefits of chocolate were recognized as far back as 4000 years ago.



• Eating chocolate can help boost the immune system, lower the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes—even obesity!—and increase lifespan.



• A 1.5 ounce bar of quality chocolate has as much antioxidant power as a 5 ounce glass of wine—without the side effects of alcohol.



• Chocolate is chock-full of mood-enhancing ingredients, including phenylethylamine (the "love drug") and serotonin.



• Chocolate can relieve a host of ailments, including depression, fatigue, pain and PMS, as well as rev up your sex drive!

Drawing on the latest scientific research as well as interviews with medical doctors and chocolatiers, this fascinating book reveals how to live longer and healthier while indulging in one of nature's most decadent and versatile foods. Explore real chocolate (infused with fruits, herbs, and spices), Mediterranean-style, heart-healthy recipes, plus home remedies that combat everything from acne to anxiety. You'll also discover rejuvenating beauty and anti-aging spa treatments—all made with antioxidant-rich chocolate!

"Can dark chocolate boost brain power? This book shows you how regular intake of antioxidant-rich cacao foods is likely to do just that, and more."
--Ray Sahelian, M.D., author of Mind Boosters

It you are a chocolate lover then this is a perfect book for you. You will learn about the benefits of good chocolate and what type to buy, something I did not realize before reading The Healing Powers of Chocolate. I didn't have any idea it was so healthy for you. You'll learn other ways chocolate is used and where you can purchase good chocolate. Each chapter is summarized at the end allowing you to review the main points of the chapter plus helping you remember where to find what you need. If you love to cook, then all the recipes will be a real treat. I highly recommend this book.

Cal Orey has done it again! She's delivered another fabulous "Healing Powers" book only this time, it's on a subject near and dear to many hearts (Valentine and otherwise)- chocolate! Orey takes us on a wonderful Willy Wonka adventure in discovering the world's greatest chocolates while extolling the virtues and health benefits of the a delectably delightbul indulgence. You'll love this book, devour it quickly and go back for seconds! A wonderful gift, but a must have book on every kitchen shelf as well - don't miss it, you'll never eat Hershey's again!
