Chocolate Good For The Heart!

Chocolate good for the heart? Maybe. Eating as little as a quarter of an ounce of chocolate each day could help prevent heart attack and stroke. Experts believe that natural compounds flavonols that are found in cocoa may benefit heart health. Dark chocolate is best because it contains more cocoa than milk chocolate.

Does this mean you should eat a whole box of chocolates? Of course not. A new study from German researchers, shows that eating as little as a quarter of an ounce (barely a morsel) of chocolate each day may lower your risk of a heart attack. When it comes to chocolate, indulge in a nibble, and take a long walk to burn the calories.
