Chocolate Really Is Good For You

 
Eating healthy can be delicious and can include a little sweet indulgence.  Dark chocolate is a great treat to enjoy without the guilt. 
 
Dark chocolate contains powerful antioxidants called flavanols, and magnesium which can reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke.  Cardiac research shows that these flavanols can promote heart health by lowering blood pressure, and improving blood flow to the brain and heart.  Milk chocolate loses these benefits because the added milk can reduce the body's ability to absorb these beneficial nutrients.  
 
So, is bitter really better?  Yes!  According to a clinical trial published in the Journal of Clinical Nutrition, consumption of dark chocolate was associated with significant blood pressure reduction as well as protection from cardio-metabolic disorders. Dark chocolate has also been shown to boost mood and concentration. Protect your heart by choosing an organic variety of dark chocolate that is 70% or higher in cacao.  Enjoy a one-ounce square in moderation to tame your sweet tooth and help your heart!
