Consuming sweets can be pernicious for your dental health is what we hear in our day to day lives, and nothing can be sweeter than chocolates. We all consume chocolates and are so fond of them that we tend to ignore even what doctors say.
But having dark chocolates can have some magical impact on your health, especially heart. There are some evidences that products of the cacao plant, especially dark chocolate, can be good for your heart. Studies show that people who eat dark chocolate have healthier cardiovascular systems, including better blood circulation, lower blood pressure, low cholesterol levels, and fewer strokes — a major health risk for people living with atrial fibrillation. The cardiologist and Everyday Health columnist T. Jared Bunch, MD, of the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute in Murray, Utah, recommends eating dark chocolate in moderation as part of a strategy to keep heart disease — the world’s No. 1 killer — at bay.
Dark chocolate should be part of a life plan that includes eating healthy foods that are largely plant-based, getting regular exercise and adequate sleep, reducing stress, and maintaining a [healthy] weight,” says Dr. Bunch
