Can Chocolate be Healthy?
Of course it can! First, it’s important to know that having a good relationship with chocolate (and food in general) is the key to a healthy lifestyle. Dark chocolate has tons of antioxidants, the most important one being epicatechin. According to Hopkins Medicine, Epicatechin is a flavonol, which is a compound found in plants that combat inflammation and prevent cell damage.
Here are some of the health benefits of chocolate:
- Dark chocolate can lower your risk of having a stroke and may prevent heart disease
- It can reduce your risk of developing diabetes (this one might come as a surprise, but many studies have proven this theory)
- Chocolate, of course, not only boosts your mood but also can improve cognition and memory
- Chocolate is amazing for your skin (try some of these ways to help your skin!)
