Do we really need to convince you to eat chocolate? No, for most of us the worry is more about what to do to put the brakes on once we taste that fateful first morsel.
But self-indulgence aside, science does state that chocolate contains some agents that our bodies can absolutely use to maintain our health.
Sure, it would be better if our favorite versions of chocolate did not also come laden with fat and sugar. However, while the most natural version of chocolate (from cacau seeds) is the most healthy version for us, it is also the version we are least likely to eat.
