Benefits of Chocolate

Today is #NationalChocolateDay! As Halloween quickly approaches, you may be thinking this sweet and delicious treat has no health benefits - but in fact, there are a number of benefits for overall senior health, when the right choices are made!

Of course, not all chocolates are created equal. Processed chocolates can have a significant negative effect on your health at any age. So when making healthy food and snack choices, dark chocolate is the clear winner. Mineral-rich and full of Polyphenols and Flavonoids to boost overall health and provide anti-oxidant benefits as well.

Dark chocolate, those with over 70% cocoa, also contains an abundance of minerals, including:

  • Iron

  • Magnesium

  • Manganese

  • Copper

  • Potassium

  • Zinc

  • Fibre

Now, before you go digging through your treat bag, enjoying a piece of dark chocolate occasionally can have great benefits to your overall health and mood, but, remember, moderation is key!
