Some amazing medical benefits of chocolate

Some amazing medical benefits of chocolate
Chocolate enthusiasts should be happy now that the nutrients and protective substances in chocolate can have a positive effect on your health.

There are many types of chocolate, but here we will talk about pure dark chocolate because it contains a lot of chocolate directly from cocoa beans.

Dark chocolate is rich in fiber and minerals. If you take a 100 gram chocolate bar containing 70 to 85% cocoa, it will contain the following amounts of minerals:
Fiber – 11 grams

Iron – 67%

Magnesium – 58%

Cooper – 89%

Magnesium – 98%

Chocolate is also rich in phosphorus, zinc, potassium and selenium. However, eating 100 grams of chocolate on a daily basis can be harmful as it also contains 600 calories and sugar. The best health benefits of chocolate are when it is eaten in moderation.

Dark chocolate also contains healthy fatty acids. It contains oleic acid, stearic acid and palmitic acid. Of these, oleic acid is especially good for heart health and is also found in olive oil.

Starch acid has a neutral effect on cholesterol while palmitic acid raises cholesterol but it is only one third of the total fat in chocolate.

In addition, dark chocolate has the ability to lower blood pressure. Flavanols (healthy plant-derived chemicals) in chocolate release nitric oxide into the body. Nitric oxide loosens the arteries through a signal that lowers blood pressure.
