101% Chocoholic

03 December 2008

Thanks Jean for this Yummylicious-Chocoholic award. I really do love chocolates or anything that has it. In my dad's province cacao is very abundant. Everytime he pays a visit, fresh cocoa is always a must to take home. On the commercial side, I am particularly in love with dark chocolates. My psychological explanation with Dark is---the bitter the better the healthier.

Dark chocolate and cocoa are rich in cell-protecting antioxidants -- natural compounds found in fruits, vegetables, grains and nuts. Read what scientists are studying regarding antioxidants and cardiovascular disease, premature aging and cancer.
Matters of the Heart
Recent studies have shown dark chocolate and cocoa may be good for your heart. In short-term clinical trials, dark chocolate has reduced blood pressure, improved blood flow, showed mild anti-clotting effects and may help prevent plaque formation in arteries. Read about the research on chocolate and your heart.
Sweet News For Managing Blood Sugar
Despite its sweet reputation, dark chocolate has a low glycemic index similar to that of oatmeal — meaning it does not send your blood sugar spiking. Find out more about the surprising chemistry behind your favorite treat.
