Superfood?

We've all heard about the benefits of chocolate and it's heart-healthy properties.

But how healthy is that chocolate, really?

Most chocolate is processed to a state that would not be recognizable to the South American natives who have been using the cacao plant for thousands of years.

Is there something that still gives us the benefits of chocolate without the chemical processing and unhealthy sugars?

Not everyone agrees on the benefits, yet some say chocolate in its natural form is loaded with antioxidants, minerals, and a host of other goodies.

See for yourself.
