In the 18th century, cocoa was officially recognized as a medicine and sold exclusively in pharmacies. The first Belgian chocolate was invented by a pharmacist who coated a cough candy with a layer of cocoa for a better taste. Chocolat Essentiel has set itself the goal of bringing cocoa back home to the pharmacy.
The cocoa and honey used in our chocolates are a delicious and natural source of iron, copper and chromium. Iron reduces fatigue and supports the normal function of the immune and cognitive (memory and concentration) system. Copper supports the normal function of the immune and nervous system, contributes to the health of hair and skin and protects against oxidative stress. Chromium helps maintain normal blood sugar levels.
