Their rich antioxidant content means that they can help lower your risk of many cancers, diseases and ageing. Did you know that cacao contains 40 times more antioxidants than blueberries?!

The Anti-Inflammatory product was the first of our product line that we listed on Amazon UK. This was a very days before New Year's last year.
In nearly four months, we have been tracking where the product has been ordered from. We were both amazed at how far some of the orders had gone! Including, Isle of Lewis, Jersey, and Guernsey. We have almost covered all of England. I think there's only perhaps six or seven counties left!
When I saw this, I had to have a bit of fun with an interactive map of the UK. It's incredible:
