iQ Superfood Chocolate

We’ve been rather spoilt of late when it comes to treats in the office. First, we were sent some rather scrumptious iQ Superfood Chocolate which tastes so good thanks to the utilisation of a rare Peruvian Criolio Bean. The bars are made from the cacao beans in their pure form – no roasting, no baking, no scorching; no freckles. All beans are fermented at source; before being ethically transported to iQ HQ deep in the Scottish countryside. The bars are sweetened with just organic coconut blossom sugar. We love their mantra –

Be Healthy, Be Happy, Be Ethical

The Superfood Chocolate contains several minerals –

Magnesium – needed by every cell in the human body, magnesium slows down the ageing process by stabilising DNA & RNA. It’s also a hormone balancer and plays an important role in the moisture levels in skin and also skin elasticity

Phosphorus – needed for cellular repair, healthy bone formation, healthy teeth and gums, and hormone balance

Copper – aids in production of collagen and elastin.

Manganese – a free radical fighter needed for maintenance of bones, absorption of calcium, healthy thyroid function, regulation of blood sugar levels and fat and carb metabolism.
