How Can Chocolate Chip Cookies Improve Your Health?!

Read Post

Open up a container of Hill & Valley Sugar Free 100 Calorie Chocolate Chip Cookies, and a wonderful fresh chocolatey aroma will overcome you. You might even get flashbacks as a kid when you snuck one (or more) cookies from your mom. Good news – you will not have to sneak these cookies. Chocolate continues to exude healing properties. Some of the latest research findings are:

• Walking Made Easier – A new study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association showed that dark chocolate may improve walking ability for people with peripheral artery disease.

• Strengthen Brain Power – Researchers found that a cocoa extract, called lavado, may reduce or block damage to nerve pathways found in patients with Alzheimer’s disease. This means that symptoms of the condition, such as cognitive decline, could be prevented.

• Help Prevent Diabetes- In the 2014 Journal of Agricultural Food and Chemistry study, researchers found that antioxidants in chocolate prevented mice from gaining weight and lowered their blood sugar levels.

    Hello. I love your products! I’m so glad to find a few at Safeway in Concord, CA & hope to try them all if I can find them. The Angel food cake was absolutely delicious.
    I just have a request for the chocolate chunk cookies, although very good that they didn’t have enough chocolate chunks (some had only 3/cookie) & could use more.
    Thanks for making these products.

    While working my pt merchandiser job and browsing the produce section at Meijer, Ft. Wayne area, I accidentally stumbled across your small rack. WOW! so excited as my wife is Type I and really misses pie, cake and cookies. Took home some red velvet, she ate 4 pcs. immediately. You just got a new customer. Cherry pie is next.
