Both regular and sugar-free dark chocolate decrease blood pressure in overweight adults, according to new research.
Consuming just a small amount of flavanol-rich cocoa powder daily can increase blood flow to your skin, making it softer, smoother, and more resistant to sun damage. (This is not your excuse to skip the sunscreen!)
Quick Tip: Add cacao beans, the source of all chocolate, to your diet for an extra flavanol boost. Try Sweetriot Flavor 65 (pieces of the bean covered in dark chocolate) or Hershey's 65% Cacao Premium Dark Chocolate with Nibs (the center of the cacao bean).
