Healthy Dark Chocolate Slice – yes really!

 

Healthy Dark Chocolate Slice

Dark chocolate was known by the Mayan civilisation as "the food of the Gods"!
Recently, evidence has shown that dark chocolate (90%) helps to improve the cardiovascular system health.
In fact, a recent Meta-analysis (that's the gold standard of scientific clinical trials) found that consuming 20g of 90% dark chocolate per day over a period of a month improves blood pressure, insulin resistance, vessel health and platelet function.
