Would you ever think of eating a bar of dark chocolate every day, in order to help lower your high blood pressure?

To most people, it sounds absurd. Almost all of us have heard about so-called chocolate health benefits from time to time. However, when it comes to standing in the queue at the local grocery store, few of us reach for a last minute chocolate bar, really believing that in doing so we’re being particularly health conscious.

Dark Chocolate Vs Milk Chocolate Health Benefits

Have you always thought of the so-called health benefits of chocolate, as just clever marketing? If so, you’re in for good news. You see, there are a number of very well documented health benefits of chocolate, particularly when in comes to dark chocolate.

First and foremost, dark chocolate specifically really is the world’s most potent antioxidant. This means that eating dark chocolate is the number one way for you to enhance your bodies ability to neutralize cellular damage caused by oxidized free radicals. In doing so, you will benefit from increased energy, a more vibrant skin tone and a reduced risk of developing a number of illnesses such as cancer and different inflammatory diseases,

As for why dark chocolate specifically carries such benefits, the answer is relatively simple. Unlike sweeter milk chocolate, the health benefits of dark chocolate aren’t compromised by over sweetening caused by the addition of health compromising refined sugar.

Using Dark Chocolate to beat Depression & High Cholesterol

As well as being one of the world’s most potent antioxidants, dark chocolate is also documented as being able to bring about several much more direct chocolate health benefits. In the case of depression, for example, dark chocolate helps the brain create and regulate serotonin, a natural mood and positivity enhancer. Even better, controlled studies have shown that dark chocolate can significantly decrease levels of health compromising LDL cholesterol, whilst also raising levels of health enhancing HDL cholesterol.

Are you looking for an excuse to enjoy all your favorite sweet temptations and sinful delights? If so, baking with and indulging in dark chocolate occasionally, will help you not only satisfy your chocolate cravings but also help you better regulate your mood and vital body rhythms. This being the case, make sure to indulge today! Do be aware, however, that only organic dark chocolate composed of 70% cocoa is proven to be genuinely beneficial. Always, in this case, buy the highest quality chocolate in order to experience more marked health benefits.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

I do love dark chocolate, but my A1C level only likes it in 100 calory (or less) servings. Some people are chocoholics and keep eating....
