Just How Healthy Is Dark Chocolate, Really?
We hear on the news and read in the newspaper and magazines about the health benefits of dark chocolate. The health benefits of chocolate are questioned so often because most of us think of chocolate as a form of candy or an indulgent treat. The great thing about chocolate is that it can be an indulgent treat and good for you. The key is to eat premium cold pressed chocolate. Buying a solid chocolate bar at the grocery store is not going to provide you with the benefits you need. All chocolate is not the same. Instead of concerning yourself only about the cocoa content of chocolate, it is important to also pay attention to how the chocolate is processed. Chocolate that has been heated or dutched like candy chocolate, loses much of its antioxidant health benefits that are touted on the news. Instead, search out a cold pressed chocolate that keeps in the antioxidant values. When you find a cold pressed chocolate, you can be sure that you are eating a high antioxidant superfood. The fact that this health food is chocolate, is just that much more amazing.
Here are just a few of the recent studies showing the indisputable value of chocolate.
University of Cambridge “Eating chocolate cuts risk of heart disease.”
Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow & Metabolism “Researchers say they have identified the molecular mechanism by which a compound in cocoa can guard against the damage of a stroke.”
UCDAVIS University of California “Heart-Healthy Compound in Chocolate Identified”
