A nine-year study in Scandinavia showed that women who at one or two servings of dark chocolate each week cut their risk for heart failure by as much as a third. (Hospitality Ireland, August 2014).
By dark chocolate, it is meant greater than 70 per cent cocoa solids. However, even 54 percent cocoa solids will bring with it beneficial health properties. Let’s face it, chocolate is good for you!
Gram per gram, in fact, chocolate of 70 per cent or greater cocoa solids has more antioxidants than blueberries. So get nibbling on some rich and dark chocolate today, guilt free!!
