a)- High in antioxydant: Dark Chocolate is made of Cacao which contains flavanols, which acts as an antioxydant. Antioxydants are essential because they help free your body of radicals.

Radicals are said to be a source of cancer, so make sure you eat enough dark chocolate to help protect your body against disease. Some studies have found chocolate to be one of the best cancer-fighting foods along with foods like red wine, blueberries, garlic, and tea.

b)- Healthier Heart: eating dark chocolate regurlarly has some benefits on your heart too. It lowers the blood pressure and reduces the risk of heart disease. Eating dark chocolate on a regular basis has been shown to reduce cholesterol level by as much as 10 percent.

c)- Natural Anti-Depressant:  Chocolate stimulates endorphin production, which creates feelings of happiness and pleasure. This explains to me why some people crave for chocolate everytime they are under pressure or in a bad mood.

d)- Healthier Brain: Studies have also shown that dark chocolate is good for the brain and can go as fa as to improve the memory.
