How could I not give you a chocolate recipe on Valentine’s day? Truly I can’t, but I want to give you a recipe that is not only delicious but also low carb. This recipe combines heart-healthy, magnesium-rich cocoa powder, brain-boosting and HDL-raising coconut oil and antioxidant-rich black cherries. A lovely combination.
Magnesium is an amazing mineral. In the citrate or glycinate form, it can be used as a muscle relaxant and relieve anxiety. It can also help with sleep and restless legs. More magnesium is found in the brain than in the circulation. That tells you how important it is for brain function. The L-threonate form can actually cross the blood-brain barrier and can help with a multitude of brain issues. Such as:
Parkinson ’s Disease
A recent study shows that working memory, episodic memory, attention and executive function were all significantly improved after using Magnesium L-threonate for 12 weeks. You can get Mag L-Threonate by Metagenics through our website. Take one capsule in the morning and two capsules 2 hours before sleep.
Coconut oil has been found to have many health benefits. It can help improve metabolism, support brain health, increase HDLs and has antimicrobial properties.
Antioxidants from dark cherries help protect the cells of the body from free radical damage and can reduce the risk of heart disease by decreasing oxidation of lipids.
This magical and delicious combination is why I want to introduce this recipe to you. It is a treat, not a meal. Try to not eat it all in one sitting.
