    Arrow Cup of cocoa may keep doctor away

    A cup of cocoa a day may help to keep the doctor away.

    A study by scientists in the United States has found that a cup of hot cocoa is rich in powerful antioxidants.

    Previous studies have also shown these chemicals, which can protect against a range of diseases and reduce the effects of ageing, are found in cocoa.

    However, this latest study suggests cocoa may be richer in antioxidants than better known "healthy" drinks like tea and red wine.

    So drink up you cocoa lovers! Swiss Miss for life all my hacker beoaches.



    Love the stuff.

    This is how we roll in Japan:

    Hell yeah!

    This is what I'm drinking now, Nescafe Protect:

    NESCAFÉ gives you a breakthrough coffee experience. Introducing NESCAFÉ Protect – it is a whole new way to enjoy coffee, in a healthier cup.

    NESCAFÉ Protect uses a special process that best preserves the antioxidants found in coffee beans. In fact, a cup of NESCAFÉ Protect contains three times more antioxidants than a cup of green tea!

    Here’s a cup of healthy facts regarding NESCAFÉ Protect and antioxidants:

    * Antioxidants are nature's way of protecting our bodies from degenerative diseases.
    * They help neutralize the formation of harmful substances called free radicals in the body. Free radicals are caused by oxidation, and may lead to toxic effects. They are formed either naturally at low levels in your body or may be strongly induced through exposure to sun and other environmental toxins like pollution from cigarette smoke and exhaust fumes.
    * Antioxidants also help protect the cells and prevent and minimize damage that leads to a wide range of diseases especially those associated with aging. Antioxidants should always be present in a well-balanced diet so your body can enjoy these benefits.
    * Vitamin C, vitamin E and beta-carotene are types of antioxidants that are naturally found in fruits and vegetables. Polyphenols, another group of antioxidants, can be sourced from tea, cacao and especially coffee in significant amounts.

    So what are you waiting for? Enjoy a fresh cup of New NESCAFÉ Protect today -- with its flavorful aroma and smooth, mild taste plus extra nutritional benefits it is the perfect addition to a healthy lifestyle.

    Savor a cup of new NESCAFÉ Protect and enjoy what antioxidants can do for your body.

    I hate coffee. Cocoa and tea are about as close to coffee as I dare go. As long as it has the polyphenols and antioxidants, I say drink away.
