More so this than the chocolate bar. Yes, I know it's raw cacao with agave nectar for a sweetener, but it's still "processed/junk chocolate" to a degree.

Rujikin: Sorry to say, those 70% dark chocolate bars aren't covered in the article you've linked. It's focused around cocoa flavanols, which are the raw, unprocessed phytonutrients that are in cocoa. The moment you start adding sugar and all of the other processed nonsense to it is the moment you lose the health benefits of the cocoa.

You can always get those unsweetened cocoa packets (for dark chocolate drinks) and make something like a peanut butter smoothie (with powder + peanut butter + whole milk). But avoid those chocolate bars - it won't improve your cognitive ability.

:P


Don't you ruin this for me!

As long as you don't eat too much sugar then your fine.
