Health benefits of dark chocolate

Many of us like to indulge a bit extra during the weekend 😋
Why not choose dark chocolate 🍫 in that case ? Anything above 70% cocoa is good but more is even better. I think it’s a habit thing and you can work your way up. Start with 70%. I’m now at 90% and find chocolate with 70% cocoa far too sweet.
Dark chocolate may have health benefits as it is naturally high in iron, magnesium, copper and manganese. Another benefit of dark chocolate is that it is high in flavonoids and antioxidants. It has been compared to ‘super fruits’ because of their concentrated source of these phytonutrients, which are higher than those in pomegranates and blueberries. But of course it’s a high fat food and a healthy portion size would not be more than 20 grams. That’s about six small squares.
Enjoy your weekend 🤩
