Five Health Benefits Of Dark Chocolate

Have you ever craved chocolates so much, but then you got scared that it will be bad for your health? Well, we’ve got some good news for you. You can have as many chocolates as you want — well not all kinds of chocolate, just dark chocolates.

 

Dark chocolates are loaded with nutrients that can positively affect your health. Here are five reasons why you should eat dark chocolate.

 

1. It helps to improve blood and lower blood pressure

 

Dark chocolate contains flavanols that can stimulate the endothelium, the lining of arteries, to produce nitric oxide. The nitric oxide then helps send relaxing signals to the arteries, which lowers the resistance to blood flow and therefore reduces blood pressure.

 

2. It can aid in weight loss

 

It can decrease the expression of genes involved in the synthesis of fatty acids. This reduces the digestion and absorption of fats and carbs, thereby increasing satiety.

 

3. It is very nutritious

 

If you buy high-quality dark chocolate, it is rich in fibre, iron, magnesium, copper, manganese and a few other minerals.

4. It helps protect your skin from damage by the sun

 

The bioactive compounds in dark chocolate are also great for your skin. The flavonols can protect against sun damage, improve blood flow to the skin and increase skin density and hydration.

 

5. It reduces inflammation

 

Inflammation is part of the body’s natural immune response to germs and other harmful substances. However, chronic inflammation can damage cells and tissues and may increase the risk of some health conditions.

 

Dark chocolate contains compounds with anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce inflammation in the body.

 

Although, it is a healthful delicacy it also comes with too many calories. We advise you to consume them with moderation. Perhaps one ounce or half even.
