Health benefits:

Cocoa:

Cocoa is rich in polyphenols which reduces cholestrol levels. Flavanols in cocoa increase the body’s nitric oxide levels. This improves blood vessel function which then improves blood pressure. Flavanols in cocoa may also increase neuron production and improve blood supply to the brain. This helps prevent alzhimer’s disease.

Strawberries:

Strawberries increase the body’s HDL (good) cholesterol levels. They are sodium-free, which can help in hyperstension by lowering your blood pressure. They contain anti-oxidants known as polyphenols. Strawberries are fat and cholestrol-free. One serving of strawberries contains more vitamin C than orange. Strawberries are low in calorie.

Olive oil:

Olive oil has so many health benefits, only a few will be mentioned here: olive oil contains nutrients and antioxidants like oleic acid and oleocanthal that fight inflammation
Olive oil lowers blood pressure by improving the function of blood vessels.
