Hot Chocolate, Not only Tasty but also Healthy

A delicious hot chocolate drink is always welcome in winter. It serves both the purposes, health and taste. A cup of hot milk is a good source of protein and calcium. A little sugar added to it is a mood elevator. A spoon of chocolate powder added to it is full of flavonoids which are the antioxidants of cocoa present in it. These antioxidants are anti-aging and immunity boosters. They have the capacity to fight free radicles, which harm the body. Hot chocolate has theobromine which helps the blood flow in the body giving the brain a good supply of blood. This further boosts the mental alertness and mental activity. This improved blood flow also lowers the blood pressure. Minerals like copper and iron present in chocolate powder further make the drink more healthy.
