Dark Chocolate Pistachio Bar

1. Help prevent heart disease~ Dark Chocolate contains Flavonoids. Flavonoids act as antioxidants that help protect cells from harmful molecules called free radicals (these evil molecules damage cells that can lead to heart disease).

2. Flavonoids also can lower blood pressure and reduce LDL cholesterol (LDL=Bad)

3. Can improve your mood!! Little endorphin stimulating action! This paired with a workout and you’ll be on cloud nine! Snaps for endorphins!!

4. Skin protection!!! Make your skin glow! Thanks to those Flavonoids, blood flow and hydration to your skin increases!
