#Chocolate – is it good or bad for you?
There has been lots written in the tabloids about the benefits of eating #chocolate but is this true or false?
Well, according to Medical News Today, #chocolate receives a lot of bad press because of its high fat and sugar content. Its consumption has been associated with acne, obesity, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, and diabetes. … #chocolate’s antioxidant potential may have a range of health benefits.
Some studies have suggested #chocolate could lower cholesterol levels and prevent memory decline.
Researchers who studied cyclists doing time trials in the U.K. found that “After eating dark #chocolate, the riders used less oxygen when cycling at a moderate pace and also covered more distance in a two-minute flat-out time trial.”
Antioxidants can help reduce free radical damage linked with premature ageing. It can be found in foods such as beans, fruit and dark #chocolate. Dark #chocolate ranks higher than many fruit and vegetables for its antioxidant power.
Healthline says dark #chocolate is loaded with nutrients that can positively affect your health. Made from the seed of the cocoa tree, it is one of the best sources of antioxidants on the planet. Studies show that dark #chocolate (not the sugary crap) can improve your health and lower the risk of heart disease.
So, I guess eaten properly the answer is a definite ‘yes’ #chocolate can be good for you. How appropriate is that with #Chocolate Week this week from 15th – 21st October. ENJOY…
