This month, definitely go dark when it comes to your chocolate. Dark chocolate is made from plants, which means that it contains many of the health benefits of dark vegetables. Who would have thought?! These benefits include flavonoids, which act as antioxidants and help protect the body from free radicals that prevent aging and heart disease. So when it comes to choosing the best box of chocolates for colleagues, friends, family or that special someone, go with the darkest option.
Did you know dark chocolate has nearly 8X the number of antioxidants compared to this fruit? Hard to believe something so good, could also be so good for you…in proper quantities at least 🙂
