Can Chocolate Improve Your Digestion ?
Eating chocolate was once a sure sign that you were off the diet !
However manufacturers are now creating foods that are not only guilt free but they claim to improve our health and sales appear to have taken off.
Apparently one product is particularly popular as it contains only 63 calories. It claims to deliver large amounts of friendly bacteria to the gut to improve digestion and wellbeing.
Harvey Nichols is reporting remarkable sales, which costs almost £12 for three packs of seven bars, and encourages shoppers to eat one a day just like fruit and veg.
The chocolate is said to be three times more effective in delivering bacteria to the gut than popular probiotic yoghurt and milk products, it also contains antioxidants and vitamins.
The website Muscle-Food.com is launching a sugar free chewy sweet high in protein and fibre that contains 15 calories and claims to help build muscles.
A spokesman of the company said that keeping fit and leading a healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to eat boring food and lots of salad.
