Dark chocolate is better for you than milk chocolate, as it generally contains more of the good stuff and less of the bad stuff. In other words, it has healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, less sugar, more fibre and therefore fewer carbohydrates. It also has much more iron and magnesium, more phosphorus and potassium, less sodium and less cholesterol.
It even contains theobromine, which helps lower blood pressure. In addition to this, cocoa found in dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants. It reduces inflammation, which is great for the cardiovascular system and lowers the chances of cardiovascular disease. Plus, bioactive compounds can improve blood flow to the skin and even protect the skin from Sun damage.
