Did you know that dark chocolate is very nutritious? It contains fiber, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc, plus other nutrients.
Here are 5 Benefits of Eating Dark Chocolate: :)
1. Dark chocolate is a source for antioxidants
2. Because dark chocolate contains cocoa, it may lower your blood pressure.
3. Dark chocolate may improve risk factors for heart disease, because cocoa lowers oxidized LDL.
4. The bioactive compounds in dark chocolate may help to protect your skin from the sun.
5. High-flavanol cocoa in dark chocolate may improve brain function
Of course, take the above with a grain of salt…or sugar! Avoid consuming large amounts of dark chocolate daily because of the excessive calories.
Besides the above benefits, let’s not forget that chocolate is delicious, especially in February. So go ahead. Indulge!
