Just when you thought the news couldnâ€™t get any better, yet another study is released showing even more healthy benefits to eating chocolate. Previous research had already found that this tasty treat is good for your heart and could help to lower blood pressure.
This new study from John Hopkins shows that eating a bit of dark chocolate each day is as good as aspirin at thinning your blood and reducing the risk of dangerous clots. This effect can be a powerful tool in preventing heart attack and stroke. The equivalent of two tablespoons is all that is needed to reap the benefits.
It is believed that adding too much milk and sugar can cancel out many of these healthy benefits. For this reason it is best to choose chocolates that contain a high level of cocoa. Your best bet is to opt for a good organic dark chocolate and enjoy.
