Dark chocolate plays a major role in heart health. Make sure you read the ingredient label and choose a dark chocolate with the first ingredient being a cocoa mass or cocoa solids… NOT SUGAR! Dark chocolate contains flavonols. Flavonols are antioxidants which can help improve your blood flow and circulation. Therefore, dark chocolate can lower your risk of developing coronary heart disease or other cardiovascular diseases.

Now … go enjoy your clusters 🙂
