The Benefits of Cocoa Nibs:
-Rich in flavonoids which promote a healthy cardio vascular system
-LDL Cholesterol reduction
-Blood Pressure reduction
-Mental focus and memory enhancement
-Increases production of seratonin reducing stress
-Improves blood quality which helps prevent blood clots and heart attacks.
Further reading about raw nibs in comparison to the cocoa used in the production of chocolate suggests though, that when mixed with milk or lactose the benefits are significantly reduced.
