Most would not disagree that the taste of dark chocolate is pleasurable and satisfying; however, few people know that it’s sensational taste can also improve one’s health. Dark chocolate’s rich, almost bitter, taste comes from cocoa; the higher the percentage of cocoa the purer the chocolate. Dark chocolate contains flavonoids that comes from extracts of the cocoa bean. The cocoa is where the antioxidants and thereby the health benefits live.
Enjoy dark chocolate that is comprised of 60-70% cocoa to reap all of its health benefits. Try dipping it in strawberries, atop all natural peanut butter, or in its plain unadulterated form. Just remember to share the sweet stuff!
