Is Dark Chocolate Healthy?
Yes, you read that right. Chocolate is going to become your new ally. We'll tell you why.
Let's start by recalling that cocoa beans are the fruit of the Theobroma tree. The beans contain fat called cocoa butter ‘or’ Theobroma oil. The latter is part of the list of ingredients of the delicious chocolate we can enjoy.
The high cocoa content of dark chocolate (above 70% cacaos) makes it a powerful ally. In fact, according to the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, dark chocolate leaves less room for sugar and contains no milk, unlike milk chocolate.
The association of cocoa and its butter provides multiple benefits to our body. Let's discover them!
A reasonable consumption of dark chocolate, about 1oz per day, would favor the protection of the heart. It helps to relax the blood vessels and improve blood flow, thereby lowering blood pressure. This is due to its contribution in flavanols, an active ingredient naturally contained in cocoa.
As for the cocoa butter, it constitutes a non-negligible contribution in vitamin E, helping our body in multiple ways: vision, reproduction, and the health of your brain, skin, and blood.
