Did you know: Dark chocolate is packed with so many nutrients to positively impact health, that it is now called a superfood. Made from the seed of the cacao tree, it is one of the best sources of antioxidants and pure dark chocolate (not to be mistaken with sweetened milk chocolate) can lower the risk of heart disease. Also loaded with healthy substances like flavonoids and theobromine, dark chocolate with at least 70% (or higher) cacao (or cocoa, which is cacao in its roasted, ground form) has the potential to lower blood pressure, improve blood flow, raise HDL (good cholesterol) and prevent LDL (bad cholesterol) from oxidation.
