What?!? Chocolate is Good for the Heart
How often do you find that one of your favorite snacks is actually good for you? If you ask me everything in moderation is good for you. But OMG DARK CHOCOLATE is good for you. Winner!!!
Well it is actually true, eatting dark chocolate has several healthy benefits for you.
I recently read an article about the benefits to eating dark chocolate. Did you know that dark chocolate is very nutritious, packed with antioxidants, can improve your blood flow, and lower your blood pressure? Consuming dark chocolate improves several important risk factors for heart disease. It lowers the susceptibility of LDL to oxidative damage while increasing HDL and improving insulin sensitivity. Dark chocolate may even protect your skin from sun burn, and has been shown to improve brain function.
So the next time you pass a dark chocolate candy bar, rethink your purchase, it just might help you in more ways than one!
