      Helen and Simon Pattinson left their jobs as lawyers to create the highest quality ethical cocoa sourced from fair trade plantations. They started with a chocolate store in Brighton, England and grew into more stores with a mission of bringing chocolate innovation into a boring British chocolate market. Today, they have one of the purest chocolate products.
      The flavanols in dark chocolate may benefit heart disease, memory (in those with mild cognition issues only), and mood and stress. It has very mild positive affects on lessening wrinkles. Those that eat chocolate with high levels of flavanols tend to have lower risk of heart disease. Cocoa flavanols may lower cholesterol in some and help with vascular function. Note that this chocolate bar is from England and it has a much higher content of flavanols than most chocolate bars sold in the USA. ln 2012, the European Food Safety Authority said that cocoa flavanols help contribute to normal blood flow. The suggested amount of flavanols needed to potentially produce these results are below. Note that Monetzuma's chocolate bar has about 1000mg per bar. Cardiovascular health: About 200 to 900 mg per day; Blood sugar improvement: About 200 mg to 600 mg per day; Memory function: About 500 to 900 mg per day; Skin elasticity/wrinkles: 320 mg per day
