Natural Health Sherpa Reviews Health Benefits of Chocolate

Share Article

Dark chocolate contains significant amounts of flavonoids and has excellent antioxidant properties. Natural Health Sherpa reviewed several research studies and found out that a little chocolate everyday can be beneficial.

Whether you are talking about basic heart health, reducing oxidation of LDL cholesterol, lowering blood
pressure levels, or even preventing blood clots, chocolate seems to be a cardiologist’s dream

“Over the past 25 years, research has exploded regarding the benefits of cocoa in all aspects of heart health. Whether you are talking about basic heart health, reducing oxidation of LDL cholesterol, lowering blood pressure levels, or even preventing blood clots, chocolate seems to be a cardiologist’s dream,” according to the health website.

The review emphasizes that “all of the effective, positive studies on chocolate use either cocoa (unsweetened powder) or dark chocolate, because darker chocolates have higher flavanol concentrations. As cocoa content decreases, antioxidant power is lost.”

The amount of chocolate consumed is also important. “Limit yourself to one or 1.5 ounces a day at most,” Natural Health Sherpa advices.

Natural Health Sherpa provides in-depth, science-based, independent reviews of natural health therapies and remedies that have been proven to be both safe and effective and are backed by good science -- multiple double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized studies. Unfortunately, there are many charlatans making bogus, unfounded claims in the natural health area, so our goal is to separate fact from fiction to pinpoint what actually works.
