healthy choco

Alberto says: Dark chocolate contains something called flavonoids, a type of poly phenol antioxidants which promotes blood flow and lower blood pressure. The recommended amount of 1.6 ounce of dark chocolate daily is ideal.

Additional benefits of eating dark chocolates to your health include the decrease in cholesterol issues, reduced risk of blood clots, promotion of the blood flow in arteries, lowers blood pressure, improved mood due to its serotonin content, and dark chocolates contain several vitamins and minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium, among many others.

A small bar of dark chocolate everyday can help keep your cardiovascular system function well. It helps lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol level and decrease the risk of heart disease. It also stimulates endorphin and serotonin production which gives a feeling of pleasure. It`s truly good for the heart!
