I love chocolate, but of course, not all chocolates are created equal and it took me some time to make the switch from milk chocolate to dark chocolate. Our favorite way of eating it is with berries.
Moderate consumption of chocolate may reduce CVD risk
Eating less than 100 g per week of chocolate appears to reduce risk for CVD, according to a meta-analysis published in Heart .
“Chocolate consumption may be associated with reduced risk of CVD at < 100 g/week consumption. Higher levels may negate the health benefits and induce adverse effects associated with high sugar consumption,” Yongcheng Ren, PhD, from the Affiliated Luohu Hospital of Shenzhen University Health Science Center in China, and colleagues wrote.
