Well, that might be a bit of a stretch, but it appears that one of the favorite treats of people around the world might actually be good for us. Can you even imagine?!
Well, I was as skeptical as the next person, so I did a bit of digging. I came across quite a few websites, including WebMD and NurseWeek, both discussed the benefits of dark chocolate. The recent buzz is due to the fact that it has been discovered that dark chocolate contains flavonoids, which are actually similar to the ‘the good stuff’ found in Green Tea. Weird, huh?
What are flavonoids? Well, without getting all technical; it’s a type of antioxidant. I’m pretty sure that most of you have heard all about those little wonders. They have been linked to decreasing blood pressure, improving circulation and quite possibly aides in boosting the immune system, among other things.
Now, I’m not saying go out and down a package of Hershey’s Special Dark Miniatures, but a nibble here and there, might just do you some good.
So, if you’re looking for a treat to tempt the taste buds, here are a few of our dark chocolate selections that just might benefit your health too!
