Chocolate: Potential Health Benefits

Including Cardiovascular, Antitumor, and Antiulcer Effects


Chocolate doesn't just taste good, it actually may be good for you! Researchers report that compounds in chocolate-called polyphenols and flavenoids-show heart-protective effects in animal studies as well as antiulcer and anticancer properties. Comparative benefits are also reported for cocoa vs. milk chocolate vs. dark chocolate. Research suggests the beneficial compounds in chocolate and cocoa may be equivalent to those in red wine and tea, and even greater than those found in various fruits and vegetables.
