HealthCorps New Yummy Partner, NibMor
Ask most people about their favorite treats and chocolate will usually make the list. The type of chocolate you choose is crucial if you care about making healthier choices. The higher the percentage of cacao, which you will typically find in darker chocolates, the more antioxidants and possible health benefits the chocolate will offer. Cacao antioxidants have been shown to reduce inflammation and slow or reduce aging, because of their impact on free radicals. It also helps if the chocolate has less refined sugar, and NibMor uses organic cane sugar, which has a lower glycemic index than white processed sugar.
NibMor also avoids milk and animal products in its chocolates, making them vegetarian and vegan approved. All the chocolates are organic and non GMO. NibMor also uses FDA approved recyclable packaging.
Though the fat in dark chocolate that has a higher percentage of cacao is oleic acid, a heart healthy monounsaturated fat, chocolate is still a treat that is high in calories, so portion control is important. Having portion-controlled servings of decadent dark chocolate treats like NibMor brand can actually help you remain committed to your diet. Those pleasurable moments when you savor a small piece of dark chocolate can help you to satisfy cravings so that you don’t feel deprived.
We are delighted that NibMor has partnered with HealthCorps, pledging to support our fundraising efforts. For more information on NibMor, check out: http://www.nibmor.com
