Health Benefits Of Dark Chocolate
Has high levels of flavonoids, antioxidants also found (but in lower amounts) in tea, red wine, and apples
Antioxidants protect cells and tissues from damage by free radicals
Contains significant amounts of magnesium important for energy production, strong bones, relaxed muscles and effective nerve transmission
Also has copper which helps the body produce neurotransmitters
Promotes cardiovascular health
Raises levels of HDL, the good cholesterol
Enhances mood and promotes cognitive function

The best way to add dark chocolate to your diet is as a replacement for other sweets

When you are shopping for a dark chocolate bar, go for at least 70 per cent cocoa. Higher the percentage, the more antioxidant content. If you really want to prioritize the antioxidant content, buy cocoa powder. It has the highest concentration of flavonoids of any dark chocolate product
