Chocolate for Your Health: 08/31/2011
Yes, it is true, cocoa is purely magic, and the more that this magical bean is studied the more magical that it has become. Dark chocolate, especially due to its higher concentration of cocoa, is even better for you. Cocoa has been link to slowing down the onset of dementia, Alzheimers, and improving cognitive function. And even more recently linked to improving BMI in adults and reducing stroke risk in males. Don't over do it though, only 1 - 2 ounces is recommended daily; that is the equivalent of 1 or 2 squares a day. Choose wisely too, dark chocolate of 75% or higher is better and more concentrated with cocoa, plus there is less sugar.
