Last week as I was sitting in the waiting room of our local hospital waiting for a loved ones heart surgery to finish, I had plenty of time to think about how to the heart and what we can do to keep our heart healthy. I read the local Florida Charlotte Sun newspaper cover to cover and ran out of things to read. I started googling articles online and came across an article by the Cleveland Clinc discussing the heart healthy benefits of dark chocolate called “Heart Healthy Benefits of Chocolate”. According to the Cleveland Clinic article,
“Most commercial chocolates are highly processed. Although it was once believed that dark chocolate contained the highest levels flavanols, recent research indicates that, depending on how the dark chocolate was processed, this may not be true. The good news is that most major chocolate manufacturers are looking for ways to keep the flavanols in their processed chocolates. But for now, your best choices are likely dark chocolate over milk chocolate (especially milk chocolate that is loaded with other fats and sugars) and cocoa powder that has not undergone Dutch processing (cocoa that is treated with an alkali to neutralize its natural acidity).”
They also go on to say “Flavanols are the main type of flavonoid found in cocoa and chocolate. In addition to having antioxidant qualities, research shows that flavanols have other potential influences on vascular health, such as lowering blood pressure, improving blood flow to the brain and heart, and making blood platelets less sticky and able to clot.”
Thankful that there is now a Healthy Chocolate that is not highly processed like commercial chocolates. This chocolate is minimally processed to keep in the antioxidant and cocoa flavanols that research shows are beneficial for heart health. Be sure to eat the healthy chocolates. Beyond healthy chocolate recommends you eat 3-4 beyond chocolates a day spaced out morning, mid day, mid afternoon and evening as antioxidants will stay in your body for 4-6 hours. Thankfully this belgian dark chocolate is also just 35 calories per 6 gram piece and just 1 gram of sugar. One individually wrapped Beyond chocolate is equal in antioxidants to over 1 pound of raw spinach making Well Beyond chocolatesa powerhouse. Order yours today!
