Dark Chocolate has gotten a lot of attention in recent years for its healthy properties. While many of the claims about how chocolate affects our health are true, some are not.
The main health benefits from chocolate come from the stimulating properties of theobromine—a chemical similar to caffeine but found only in cacao—which dilates blood vessels and bronchioles. Chocolate also has a high concentration of flavonoids, a type of antioxidant that improves blood flow and
acts as an anti-inflammatory. Chocolate is a source of good-fat calories and phenylethylamine, which gives us energy and contributes to a sense of wellbeing. And it’s one of few foods with lots of magnesium, as well as other minerals like iron and potassium.
But at the end of the day, Sibö Chocolate believes that you should eat chocolate because it tastes good. And the pleasure you get from enjoying a little piece of affordable luxury should be enough reason to treat yourself to a chocolate morsel or share some chocolate with a friend. If you’re a chocolate lover, but can’t eat sugar because of dietary restrictions, Sibö Chocolate has a line of sugar-free products that are sweetened with xylitol, a natural sweetener derived from the Abedul birch tree.
Live and amazing
