Good news ladies! Chocolates are good for us. Well, at least the dark ones.
According to the American Dietic Association, one of the primary benefits of chocolate is the antioxidants, particularly the flavonoids that are responsible for preventing cholesterol from sticking to our artery walls, a cause of heart attack and stroke. In fact, these flavonoids in chocolates are the same compounds that are found in red wine and tea.
Apparently because flavonoids come from extracts of the cocoa bean, therefore the darker the chocolate, the better it is for our body .
