Scientists believe the reason dark chocolate is good for us is because we have chocoholic bacteria in our guts which helps prevent heart disease and strokes. This bacteria breaks down the chocolate and leaves a very potent anti inflammatory agent which will act as a defensive mechanism for your body.
Combining dark chocolate with fruits such as acai berry and pomegranate may also boost benefits and this is why you will see this combination in supermarkets. 75% and higher dark chocolate will promote these health benefits and can be consumed on a daily basis. Consuming one or two squares of it will do the trick and it might even help your craving of regular chocolate which sadly doesn't offer the same benefits.
