At this time of year, every shop and supermarket stock their shelves with bunny and egg shaped treats. While very tasty they are full of sugar, syrups and hard to pronounce stuff. Of course we would never tell you to forego chocolate especially at this time of year but you can choose a healthier chocolate with added health benefits. Dark chocolate with 70 percent or more cacao has been shown to help lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease and help to regulate stress. There are literally hundreds of studies on chocolate, but most pro-chocolate research say you should opt for dark chocolate over milk or white if trying to be healthier.
