Just to be safe, eat a bit of dark Chocolate
February 9, 2021
Chocolate, is it all its cracked up to be? Lets look at the research, but just to be on the safe side you better get some dark chocolate to snack on while we discuss this.
We're between two chocolate-filled holidays: Christmas and Valentine's Day. Chocolate has been heralded as having a ton of health benefits. Dare we say that *most* people enjoy eating and drinking chocolate. (We sure do!)
But . . .
What does the research really say about its *miraculous* health benefits? Can chocolate improve heart health and blood sugar control? If so, is there actually that big of a difference between dark chocolate and milk chocolate?
Find out by listening to episode 10 of rEATsearch where we go over a recent study (that reviews a bunch of other studies) on chocolate to get to the bottom of the hype. (And you can feel free to enjoy a small bit of dark chocolate while you listen . . . we won't tell!)
