Health Benefits of Dark Chocolate

Science tells us that enjoying chocolate in moderation, specifically solid dark chocolate, offers a variety of health benefits. For those of us who promised ourselves to make healthy lifestyle decisions in the new year, this is great news!

  • One of the biggest health boosters in solid dark chocolate are flavanoids. Flavanol (a type of flavanoid) improves blood flow, which leads to a healthy heart, improved brain function, and healthier skin.
  • Dark chocolate also contains fibre, iron, magnesium, copper, and manganese as well as healthy fatty acids.
  • Solid dark chocolate and raw cocoa is also extremely high in antioxidants. In fact, antioxidant levels in dark chocolate are found to be higher than that found in blueberries and red wine!

So next time you choose to have a treat, feel good about enjoying dark chocolate!
