An example of its use is increasing prolactin production in lactating mothers. However, dark chocolate combined with other ingredients such as sugar and milk, make their organic benefits are lost and unable to fulfill their medicinal function.

We did a consultation with the specialist in cardiology Fernando Aguirre, president of the Ecuadorian Association of Cardiology and head area at the Military Hospital of Guayaquil. He stated that cocoa is a product rich in flavonoids that transport fats have anti-inflammatory effects, dilate the arteries and improve insulin resistance. An investigation in 2012 by the Swiss School and Massachusetts General Hospital Boston, discovered that inside the flavonoids there are a special derivate called “epitaclinas” which had a positive impact in the human body. These substances are also in grapes, apples and lentils; but the highest percentage was found in cocoa.
