Delicious Chocolate Protects Your Heart!


Dark chocolate fights heart disease, high blood pressure, and other ailments. It works because of flavonoids and resveratrol, the natural plant chemicals you find in chocolate.

They behave as antioxidants, fighting free radicals, and in turn, prevent damage to cells that can lead to heart disease!

Dark chocolate also lowers levels of C-reactive protein, a marker of harmful inflammation in your body. This antioxidant effect also allows chocolate to improve blood vessel function and reduce high blood pressure. Not to mention, it can also improve your cholesterol levels!

Just avoid drinking milk when you eat your yummy chocolate. Milk has been shown to limit the health-boosting benefits chocolate has to offer by blocking the absorption of antioxidants.
