If you have difficulty with the pain of arthritis in your hand or arm like I have had, then you know how debilitating and discouraging it can be. The pain of arthritis can be overwhelming and is not limited to the elderly. Anyone at any age can experience the pain of arthritis. Reducing inflammation is key to reducing arthritis. Ashley Koff, RD Nutrition and Dietetics had this to say about inflammation and antioxidants, “Anything that reduces oxidation reduces inflammation, and anything that reduces inflammation reduces oxidation. That’s partly why antioxidants are so important.”
One great way to increase the antioxidants you eat is to eat cold pressed dark chocolate. Beyond healthy chocolate is the only company that makes cold pressed chocolate. The key is not to heat the cocoa like traditional chocolate by dutching it at high temperatures. Beyond the Healthy Chocolate Company uses a patented cold press technology to make sure you get all the antioxidants and the flavonoids in their dark chocolate.
Check out the video above with Michael Stern of Fort Myers, Florida as he shares how he was pain free from suffering from arthritis for nine years after eating Beyond Chocolate for six weeks. Here his story in the video above and see the results he experienced eating just three pieces of Beyond chocolate a day. The key is to eat it in the morning, middle of the day and evening to make sure you are constantly giving your body antioxidants as they only stay in your system 4-6 hours.
