Dark chocolate nowadays is popularly known as one of the best superfoods. If you nibble dark chocolate to satisfy a craving, you are also helping your heart with every bite, say experts.

Sonia Narang, Wellness and Nutrition Expert, Oriflame India and Meher Rajput, Nutritionists and Dietician, FITPASS share that how dark chocolates can be healthy too. Dark chocolate is also preloaded with decent amounts of soluble fiber and potential minerals. It contains Oleic acid, Stearic acid, and Palmitic acid.

Loaded with organic compounds which are biologically active, dark chocolate can help lower blood pressure and improve the flow of blood in your body. It greatly helps in decreasing the levels of oxidised LDL Cholesterol in men. Eating dark chocolate (which has 65 percent polyphenol-rich cocoa) helps to lower blood pressure naturally.

Flavanols found in dark chocolate help in improving your heart health by lowering blood pressure and refining the flow of blood to the heart as well as to the brain. They also help in reducing the risk of cancer.

Dark chocolate also reduces the level of insulin resistance, which is a very common factor behind the birth of diseases like Diabetes, Cardiovascular disease, and other heart ailments. Dark chocolate also has a high concentration of an alkaloid called theobromine which has stimulant properties and relaxing effects. It can dilate the blood vessels.

    Beware: Weather it is dark chokolate or any food if it is sugar content will lead to diabetic and a lot of connected diseases, which in turn will lead to thousands of diabetic deaths world wide. I appeal to Indian Express, for saving the human beings from diabetic, don't accept any type of adverti ts connected with sugar foods. at present even children are attacked with diabetic. The parents do not know while they are giving their children various types high sugar foods like ice cream, chokolate, jilebi, ladu, halva, etc. "they are giving poison to their children leadin to diabetic from child hood. Please seean example of sugar poison status: a. 1 cup tea requires.................20 gm. of sugar b. 1 cup ice cream contains......more than 120 gm. of sugar. SUGAR POISON STARTS HERE. Around more than 500 grams of sugar is fed to a lovig baby by their parents. awareness through note books displaying " SUGAR IS POISON. STOP SUGAR FOODS." is the only solution to eradicate diabetic.
