Chocolate

Chocolate is one of the most popular Valentine’s Day gifts. It is well loved and often brings comfort to the consumer. But is it good for you?
.
The purer the #chocolate (the more #cacao, less milk and sugar), the healthier it can be. When consuming chocolate, you want to aim for darker chocolate that’s at least 70% cacao.
.
Dark chocolate is full of nutrients like #fiber, #iron, #magnesium, #potassium, and #zinc. It’s rich in antioxidants and can help improve blood sugar levels and blood circulation, which leads to reduced risk in heart disease. All good things!
.
But it’s also full of sugar, #unhealthy fats and carbs, and high in calories. Not to mention, too much can have a serious effect on your #DentalHealth .
.
While there are several pros and cons to eating chocolate, short answer is that chocolate, like most good things, should be consumed in moderation.

Do you know of any other benefits of #darkchocolate?
