It’s one of the best sources of antioxidants

Yes, you read that right. Dark chocolate has been tested and earned its spot on the top of the list for one of the best sources of antioxidants ON THE PLANET!

 

High cocoa contents means nutritional value

For chocolate containing 70-85% cocoa, consumers can expect a heap of daily minerals. Below is an example:

  • 11 grams of fiber
  • More than 65% of your daily iron requirement
  • Over 50% in the hard to find magnesium content
  • Don’t forget about Potassium, Manganese, Phosphorus, and Zinc

 

Improved blood pressure

The bioactive compounds in cocoa can stimulate endothelium to produce nitric oxide. Nitric oxide helps your body to relax, improving blood flow and potentially lowering blood pressure.

 

Dark chocolate may reduce heart disease

Studies have shown dark chocolate to be protective against the oxidation of LDL (bad cholesterol). In a study, cocoa was found to reduce the risk of death from heart disease by nearly half over 15 years! Other studies report that daily consumption of dark chocolate produces an even better chance of lowering numbers.

It’s good for your skin

Who doesn’t want a clear, glowing complexion? Instead of spending hundreds, if not thousands of dollars each year on beauty products, eat chocolate! The bioactive compounds have shown to hydrate, increase skin density, and even protect against harmful UV ray damage.

 

Dark chocolate is a stimulant

Containing substances like caffeine and theobromine, dark chocolate can provide short-term stimulation to the brain. Thus, improved blood flow combined with improved cognitive function means potentially higher levels of functionality.
