I stopped by my local grocery store and found Lindt’s Excellence Smooth Dark Chocolate bar and found it to be delicious! Some key benefits of eating dark chocolate are below:
- Potent antioxidant – Flavinoids can help protect against free radicals and increase blood flow to the skin and improve skin’s hydration and complexion.
- Lower blood pressure – plant phenols (cocoa phenols) are compounds that lower blood pressure.
- Reduce LDL (bad) cholestoral
Below are the Nutrition Facts in Lindt’s Excellence Smooth Dark Chocolate Bar. Notice that eating 4 squares is equivalent to 220 calories and that it has 12 grams of sugar so when eating dark chocolate, moderation is key! Do you eat dark chocolate and if so, what kind?
