3 oz powder 85% Dutch Dark Cocoa (Chocolate)   non-alkalized certified organic Fair traded. Flavorful and Healthy. Sugar free.

Incredible healing power.  

Probiotics like those in Kombucha, Jun, Ginger Beer, and Kefir enhance health benefits

According to Dr Mercola Your Gut Bacteria Help Unlock Dark Chocolate's Anti-Inflammatory and antioxidant Powers, and probiotics boost its benefits.  

The study found your gut bacteria breaks down and ferments the components in dark chocolate, turning them into anti-inflammatory compounds that benefit your heart and health. In particular, Probiotics like Bifidobacterium and lactic acid bacteria "feasted" on chocolate,and made other foods which we trouble digesting more digestable.and bioavailable to our body.  

Although milk (as in milk chocolate, and alkalized Dark Chocolate)  and kefir and Caspian Sea yogurt the benefits are not as great.

Dr Mercola went on to say that Chocolate is linked to 40+ Health Benefits.

Yeah, and that when taken with whole solid fruit (like strawberries, acai, pomegranate) boosts the health potential. 

Dark chocolate – as high in cacao and as bitter as you can stand -- is your best option, that does not mean (IMO) that you can't put Bitter Dark Chocolate into your yogurt, kefir, Japanese Water Crystals or Kombucha - here's why. Milk will reduce the benefits but does not eliminate those benefits and I sure do love it with kefir and yogurt and thus I eat more.
