A nine-year study in Scandinavia showed that womenÂ who at one or twoÂ servings of dark chocolate each week cut their riskÂ for heart failure by as muchÂ as a third.Â (Hospitality Ireland, August 2014).
By dark chocolate, it is meant greater than 70 perÂ cent cocoa solids. However, even 54 percent cocoa solids will bring with it beneficial health properties. Letâ€™sÂ face it, chocolate is good for you!
Gram per gram, in fact, chocolate of 70 per cent orÂ greater cocoa solids hasÂ more antioxidants than blueberries. So get nibbling on some rich and darkÂ chocolate today, guilt free!!
