I love chocolate way to much, I thought this was having no benefits on my health, so I did a little research and found a few reasons why chocolate is good for you. This made me feel a lot better about having the odd chocolate bar!

Cocoa and cacao contain plant nutrients called proanthocyanidins. These phytonutrients have been shown in research to protect against carcinogens and nervous system toxins.
