7 Dark Chocolate Benefits

Dark chocolate is one of the most popular indulgences commonly enjoyed by adults. Its rich and intense flavour profile is well suited for chocolate lovers who don’t enjoy overly sweet treats. Along with being the perfect delight to have at any time of the day, and a great chocolate gift option for friends and family, there is a range of dark chocolate benefits too.

For hundreds of years, dark chocolate was not consumed as a sweet treat but as medicine, popular for its healing properties. The seed of the Cacao or Cocoa tree undergoes various processes till it comes to us in the form of a dark chocolate bar. This seed is dried, roasted and ground into cocoa powder. Dark chocolates are a culmination of cocoa powder, cocoa liquor, and fats. They contain no milk solids which makes cocoa its biggest ingredient. And this ingredient is what makes dark chocolate good for health.

Here are 7 benefits of dark chocolate you probably didn’t know about

  1. Filled with essential nutrients

    Dark chocolate (70-85% Cacao) is teeming with goodness as it contains magnesium, protein, calcium, iron, copper, sulphur, and Vitamin C. It is also a source of good fats and antioxidants. Dark chocolate contains a significant number of flavonoids, a type of protein that is responsible for its bitter taste and provides many health benefits to the body.

  2. Good for the heart

    Flavonoids present in dark chocolate are known to promote better cardiovascular health. Dark chocolate stops the hardening or thickening of arteries and restores the flexibility of arteries. This helps reduce the risk of several cardiovascular diseases. In times like now, where cardiovascular diseases in middle-aged adults have grown very common, dark chocolate is a good item to consume in moderation.

  3. Regulates blood pressure reduces and hypertension

    The various polyphenols like flavonoids present in dark chocolate improve the function of endothelial cells or cells near the heart which in turn reduces hypertension and blood pressure. Flavonoids are also found to prevent cardiometabolic disorders like diabetes and renal failure.

  4. Helps protect skin from sun damage

    Studies suggest that dark chocolate, when consumed regularly can help fight UV rays. The Flavanols present in dark chocolate are found to have photoprotection abilities, which help in protecting our skin from sun’s harmful rays like UV rays.

  5. May help in preventing cancer

    Many studies have researched the effects of dark chocolate on cancer. It has been found that dark chocolate does help protect against some types of cancer like breast cancer. Flavanols and antioxidants present in dark chocolate fight free radicals and thus help reduce the chances of cancer.

  6. May help in preventing diabetes

    Dark chocolate promotes the active functioning of blood flow and blood vessels. Flavonoids present in dark chocolate help decrease insulin resistance and helps the body to use insulin efficiently. It must also be noted that dark chocolate has a low GI value which causes fewer blood sugar spikes too. This makes it a favourable item to have for patients with diabetes or pre-diabetes.

  7. Positively affects mood and cognitive health

    Several studies have found that consuming dark chocolate increases blood flow in the heart and the brain. This helps cognitive function and elevates mood too. So having a bar of dark chocolate when you’re feeling down could help you.
