Great Chocolate Treatments

Chocolate is derived from the cacao bean which is found in trees that can reach between 15 to 26 feet in height. Tracing back as early as 400 - 600 B.C., chocolate has a long standing history not only as a decadent food, indulged by many, but also as an ingredient used for medicinal purposes. In modern times, it is now known that the cacao bean contains several nutrients that are important for overall health, such as magnesium, vitamin C, iron, antioxidant flavonoids, omega fatty acids, and many more. The cacao bean itself is a super-rich antioxidant, so much so that for every 100 grams of cacao it contains 10,000 milligrams of flavanol antioxidants.

So, this little bean packs a punch helping the body fight off free radicals that can cause wrinkles, elasticity loss, skin damage, et cetera. Within this month’s Great Treatments section, we have included several different treatments from around the country that use chocolate as their main ingredient in hopes that they will inspire you with new thoughts and ideas on how to update or revitalize your service menu.
