As crazy as it sounds, chocolate may actually be a superfood! Multiple studies show 70% cocoa dark chocolate consumed daily can lower inflammation, improve brain function, help protect the skin from UV rays (sunburn), lower risk of cardiovascular disease, and reduce stress by lowering cortisol levels. Heavily sugared milk chocolate will not produce these results, but an ounce of dark chocolate daily might. To maximize health, investigate adding a delicious bite of 70%+ dark cocoa (chocolate) to your daily diet.
