If you eat chocolate daily, make it dark
We absolutely love it when a study comes out that says chocolate is good for us, don’t we? When a study says that chocolate may make us slimmer or chocolate eaters may have fewer strokes, many of us suddenly get very interested in scientific research. Of course, it usually comes out in those studies that those who eat dark chocolate, usually 70 percent cacao or higher, get the most health benefits.
They found that those who ate either form of dark chocolate had lower blood sugar levels and better cholesterol ratios, more “good” cholesterol or HDL, and less “bad” cholesterol, or LDL, compared to the white chocolate group.
