Flavanols promote the production of nitric oxide, which relaxes the blood vessels and enhances blood flow. This helps lower blood pressure and ultimately enhances heart health.

These flavanols can also increase insulin sensitivity and possibly cut down diabetes risk.

 

 

The other important nutrients include iron, magnesium, pper, zinc, and phosphorus – all of which contribute to your overall health (including cancer prevention).

The flavanols can protect the skin against sun damage. Studies show that dietary flavanols from cocoa offer photoprotection and improve dermal blood circulation.

  3. Thank you so much for this post!!! It just allowed me the opportunity to connect the dots between some heart monitoring test results I’d had (while eating dark chocolate) and my most recent improved heart measurements while NOT consuming chocolate! Wow!!! ❤️🦋🌀
