Just to clarify, I'm new to this, so...


Chocolate has many health benefits, including better blood circulation and flow, antioxidants, and decreases blood pressure. Obviously, I'm not talking about the milky, sugary chocolates that first appear in your mind upon hearing the word. I'm talking about the bitter-sweet, dark chocolate. The higher the cocoa content, the more health benefits there are and the less sugar content, which is better for overall health.



Do you have any evidence for these claims?

I believe that you might have the burden of proof.

Chocolate isn't healthy in the form we usually eat it in. The healthy compounds come in such small amounts in chocolate, it isn't worth it for the rest of the ingredients you'd need to consume. Cacao, like any other plant, comes in hundreds of species, and the amount of said compounds vary. Just the pure stuff straight from the plant is rich in health benefits, but production of chocolate removes many of these compounds, be it dark, milk, or white chocolate.
The reason we often hear that chocolate, even dark chocolate, is this magical health food is because these studies are well... often paid for by chocolate companies. The media loves the notion of such a beloved candy could be healthy for you, and the craze began. Thanks for reading this.
