I recently reviewed all of the studies I had in my files related to dark chocolate, and I am happy to report the following science-based health benefits:
My best advice is to include a small portion – up to ½ oz of the highest cacao your palate enjoys. The higher the cacao levels the more beneficial antioxidants it contains. 1-2 squares from a large dark chocolate bar of 72% or higher cacao is fantastic. I always include 1-2 squares of Ghirardelli® 86% dark chocolate after my lunch.
THERE’S STILL ROOM FOR YOU!
Join me for a wellness retreat next Friday, January 18th!
