More Chocolate and Health Benefits

September 27th, 2011 by Rosa

Big chocolate health news has broken again, and it’s been all over the internets, from the NY Times to Jezebel to the Kitchn: a recently published meta-analysis has shown that eating chocolate is correlated with lower rates of heart disease and strokes, and lowered blood pressure to boot.

As usual with these reports, the health benefits are associated with dark chocolate. And, of course, they come with the “eat more but still in moderation” caveat, so don’t go too overboard! Still, it’s nice to think that my candy blogging habit may not be totally wreaking havoc with my cardiovascular system.

    Dark chocolate has many health benefits. What I’d suggest is the type that is cold pressed that keeps intact the high antioxidants that dark chocolate has naturally.

    Xocai has that very type of chocolate and it’s yummy too!
