Benefits of Dark Chocolate

I have known from my mentor that dark chocolates are good for the heart. He always mention in our class that a small bar of dark chocolate can help keep heart and cardiovascular system diseases away! Why dark chocolates are good for the heart? There are two main reasons:

1. Dark chocolates lower blood pressure. It reduces blood pressure in individuals with high blood pressure.
2. Dark chocolates lower cholesterol. It reduces reduce LDL cholesterol, the bad cholesterol, by up to 10 percent.

For me, I love all kinds of chocolates. Look at the image below!
