Is Chocolate Really Good for You? We’d Love to Think So.

Friday, February 2nd, 2018 | by

It’s more likely now than it was a decade ago to see the fit, healthy people you know snacking on chocolate between workouts. Is it wishful thinking?

Chocolate

Reviewing modern and historical claims about the health benefits of chocolate, a few things become clear.

  • Throughout time, chocolate has played a role in the medicinal practices of various cultures
  • Modern research has verified many of these traditional uses
  • Of these potential benefits of chocolate, digestive health, antioxidant properties and aspects of heart health appear most relevant and validated
  • Flavonols are the secret behind the health properties of chocolate
  • Dark chocolate is the way to go
  • Watch out for added sugars, fats and other ingredients
  • Naturally sugarless and stocked with fiber, cocoa nibs may be one of the healthiest ways to reap the benefits of chocolate
  • Despite all of its health benefits, chocolate is no replacement for the other fruits and vegetables that offer flavonols

The bottom line: in moderation, chocolate brings a lot to the table.
