Chocolate can be healthy.
The flavonoids that are found in cocoa have anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. They can help maintain the health of small blood vessels and connective tissues.
Chocolate, specifically dark chocolate that has at least 70% cocoa, can be beneficial when taken in small increments. It can improve circulation and help maintain cardiovascular health.
If you can’t find 70& cocoa, try semi-sweet all-cocoa chocolate chips.
Do not eat milk chocolate or chocolate made with milk fat, as these will make you gain weight without the health benefits.
