Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Chocolate Day

Can you believe eating chocolate actually has health benefits? Chocolate contains flavonoid compounds that act as antioxidants:

  • Reduce free radicals produced by oxygen
  • Lower LDL cholesterol
  • Reduce blood pressure
  • Reduce platelet aggregation

Eating as little as 7 grams of dark chocolate may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Be careful though, eating too many calories from chocolate may lead to weight gain. Aim for eating 90 to 100 kcal/d of dark chocolate to gain health benefits without gaining weight.
