We all know that dark chocolate is good; now there’s evidence that it’s good for your health as well, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens.
A leading scientific Journal, FASEB, recently published the results of a study showing that treating yourself to this particular indulgence, taken in moderation, may reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, restoring arterial flexibility. The researchers found that dark chocolate with high levels of the natural antioxidant, flavonal, also prevented white blood cells from sticking to blood vessel walls.
Just don’t get carried away, AMAC noted. You needn’t overindulge to achieve the benefits of this small pleasure.
