Collection of chocolates

Do you think chocolate is good for our health? Recently, I eat chocolate every day. I’m crazy about chocolates now. I heard we gain our weights, get high blood pressure, and diabetic. So, I search a relation between chocolate and health.

In fact, chocolate is healthy because it has cocoa. Cocoa beans are main ingredient. They have effects that reduce the risks of diabetes, stroke and heart attack. So, it is good to eat chocolate to our health.

However, most commercial chocolate has ingredients that add fat, sugar and calories. And eating too much chocolate can contribute to weight gain, a risk factor for high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes. So, we should choose dark chocolate with cocoa content of 65 percent or higher and limit ourselves to around 85 grams a day. Do you think chocolate is good to our health? I’ll try to buy bitter chocolate instead of sweet one.
