Benefits of Cacao ( Dark chocolate)

The benefits
Besides being scientifically proven to be the most nutritionally complex food on the planet, cacao contains a whopping 621 antioxidants, whereas blueberries contain just 32. A food that has that much power to fight free radicals should automatically be welcomed into your kitchen. On top of its virtues as an antioxidant, cacao has a wonderful effect on the cardiovascular system, particularly when it comes to lowering blood pressure. Recent studies have shown that it’s not so much cholesterol that needs to be kept in check in order to have good heart health, but your blood sugar that needs to be balanced. The high fibre content in cacao is great for this and will also help to achieve good digestive health.
