Benefits of Chocolate
What are the Health Benefits of Our Favorite Superfood - Dark Chocolate?
- 1. Great For Your Heart
Naturally occurring antioxidants in our chocolate, called flavonoids, produce nitric oxide, relaxing your arteries and improving the blood flow to your heart. Decreasing your blood pressure and the risk of a heart attack and stroke.
- 2. Helps with Brain Fog
The increased blood flow in the heart also applies to the brain. Chocolate supports the blood vessels to open, and allowing nutrient-rich blood to reach the brain. Helping to keep you mentally alert and on your game.
- 3. Makes You Mellow
Chocolate lessens the level of cortisol, the stress hormone in your body. Which is why people crave chocolate on a hard day.
- 4. Boosts Your Glowing Skin
Our chocolate's antioxidants help protect skin from UV damage and the bioactive compounds increase blood flow and hydration.
- 5. Yes, It's Nutritious.
Dark chocolate contains soluble fiber and minerals, including magnesium, potassium, selenium, and iron. Studies prove that eating dark chocolate twice a week results in a lower BMI (body mass index).
