Chocolateee Can Be Healtheee

I came across this article earlier. Chocolate lovers (like me!) would give this article a thumbs up! 🙂

Here’s an excerpt of the yahoo news:


Recent studies have shown that eating small amounts of chocolate every day can lower risk of cardiovascular disease by 37 percent, reduce risk of stroke by 20 to 29 percent and may also reduce risk for diabetes. “Dark chocolate should be a guilt-free dessert, because it’s filled with flavonoids, which help protect your heart by lowering bad cholesterol and preventing inflammation,” says Jimenez. “When you’re buying dark chocolate, make sure the first ingredient is cacao, because that’s where the flavonoids are. Cacao by itself is bitter, so some sugar or corn syrup may be in the product, and that’s okay, as long as the first ingredient is dark chocolate or cacao. Try a few and see which ones you like the best.” Again, the secret is moderation. About two candy bars per week, or about 1/4 quarter of a candy bar per day, is the recommended amount of chocolate to help your heart.

About Audrey

I am not a typical “girl-next-door”, But I am striving to be a woman of valor. I cannot turn the heads of many people, But I can touch their lives and still be humble. To please my Creator, that is my main goal, To let Him mold me, for me to fit in my role. My other wish is to have a pure soul, And to have a zealous heart like a burning coal. Strength and honor must be my clothing, Purity and honesty, for me is an important thing. To be a woman of principles, that’s what I’m preparing, To make God proud of me as I keep on dazzling. I may not be as perfect as what I want to be, A soldier in the battle that is what I can see. I’ll keep on fighting to solve life’s mystery, To win the battle is the best reward for me!
