10 Great Things That Eating Chocolate Says About You


10. You Care About Your Heart

Studies have found that dark chocolate can help restore the flexibility to the arteries of the heart, as well as help prevent white bloods cells from forming clogs in the blood vessels. These studies also state that cocoa reduces bad cholesterol while increasing levels of good cholesterol.

Overall, chocolate can reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke by 1/3. This is largely thanks to an antioxidant that chocolate contains called polyphenols, which is also found in red wine.

Researchers from Harvard University studied a wide variety of elderly men and found that those who ate a modest amount of dark chocolate–up to three times a month–lived almost a year longer than those who didn’t.
