Just to mention a few of the reasons why eating dark chocolates in moderation can have health benefits, but as with  many other foods, if you eat too much dark chocolate you would put on weight.

                                However, here are a few reasons why dark chocolate  can be good for you:

  • Dark chocolate comes from its high levels of flavonoids potent antioxidants that protect cells from free radicals,which are unstable molecules that can alter and weaken cells. Consider them as an insurance policy against the wear and tear that comes from stress, poor diet, and the inevitable process of aging.
  • Dark chocolate also contains significant amounts of two important minerals: A 1.5 ounce serving of dark chocolate provides 15 percent of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of magnesium (important for energy production, strong bones, relaxed muscles, and effective nerve transmission), and 34 percent of the RDA of copper (which helps the body create the chemical messengers known as neurotransmitters and is associated with a lowered risk of developing cardiovascular disease).​​
  • ​Researchers study indicates that dark chocolate improves blood flow and protects arteries by stimulating the coronary arteries to  increase in diameter which can help promote heart health by assisting in minimizing risk coronary blockage, lowering your LDL (bad) cholesterol.
  • Dark chocolate may assist in raising your HDL (good) cholesterol. Even small increases in HDL can lead to significant reduction in risk of developing heart disease. "For every 1 milligram improvement in HDL cholesterol, you get a 2 percent reduction in the risk of a heart attack. Although studies present conflicting evidence about the full impact dark chocolate on HDL levels, several studies have linked dark chocolate consumption with higher HDL.
  • When you are shopping for a dark chocolate bar, let the cocoa content be your guide, it's typically listed prominently on the label, and you want a bar with at least 70 percent cocoa beans. The higher the percentage, the more antioxidant content. If you really want to prioritize the antioxidant content.​

Chocolate and Human Health

Healthy fats Antioxidants Nitrogenous compounds, including proteins, methylxanthines theobromine, and caffeine (central nervous system stimulants, diuretics, and smooth muscle relaxants. Theobromine is the ingredient that can cause heartburn in some individuals; on the other hand, it also inhibits persistent cough by reducing vagus nerve activity 13)
Minerals, including potassium, phosphorus, copper, iron, zinc, and magnesium. 
Valeric acid (which acts as a stress reducer despite the presence of stimulants)
