Chocolate is rich in antioxidants. Despite its bad reputation for causing weight gain, there are a number of health benefits associated with its consumption (particularly dark chocolate) that include: lowering cholesterol levels, preventing cognitive decline, and reducing the risk of cardiovascular problems. The higher the cocoa content, as in dark chocolate, the more benefits there are. Dark chocolate may also contain less fat and sugar, but it is important to check the label.
All in all, eating chocolate can have both health benefits and risks. As ever, moderation is key.
