As many of you may know I love sweets like a kid on Halloween, lol!  Cupcakes, pie, you name it – let’s just say dark chocolate is my second best friend!

Here are a couple of positive effects of Dark Chocolate…

1. Brain

Cocoa antioxidants called polyphenols can help increase blood to your noggin, improving smarts and memory.

2. Mood 

Cocoa butter fats can trigger natural endorphins and tiny amounts of anandamide .

3. Heart 

Epicatechin, one of the compounds that lends cocoa its bitter taste, could cut your stroke risk by 20 percent.
