Health Benefits of Cocoa
The cocoa bean is a rich source of phytonutrients, plant compounds that may have protective or health promoting properties. Research reveals 5 ways dark chocolate can be good for you:
- Reduces Inflammation: The cocoa bean is a rich source of the antioxidant theobromine, which may reduce inflammation.
- Lowers Risk of Heart Disease: Studies have found that habitual chocolate consumers had a lower risk of coronary heart disease and stroke compared with subjects who didn’t eat chocolate.
- Reduces Risk of Future Cognitive Decline: A 2015 study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggested that cocoa flavanols, a type of phytonutrient, may reduce some measure of age-related cognitive dysfunction with habitual intake.
- Reduces Blood Pressure: Again, those powerful flavanols in dark chocolate are thought to increase nitric oxide, which improves blood vessel function and can lower blood pressure.
