[] 6 Reasons To Eat Dark, Organic Chocolate

has posted a new item, '6 Reasons To Eat Dark, Organic Chocolate'

Not many of us need a reason to eat chocolate, but here are the six reasons to
only eat dark, organic chocolate:Unless chocolate is organic it contains
pesticide residue. Here is what those FDA approved levels of residues do to
you:? Glyphosate ? effects on digestive system tissue, genetic damage, effects
on reproduction, carcinogenicity? Hydrogen Cyanide ? acute toxicity, thyroid
effects, nerve degeneration? Naled ? central nervous system disruption;
headaches, nausea and diarrhea? Pyrethrins ? carcinogenicity, reproductive and
developmental toxicity, neurotoxicity? Methyl Bromide ? prostate cancer, kidney
and liver effects, neurological effectsDark chocolate has been proven to improve
blood pressure.Dark chocolate can improve glucose metabolism/diabetic
control.Dark chocolate contains high levels of naturally occurring plant
flavonoids called polyphenols. These flavonoids are antioxidants.Another type of
polyphenol found in chocolate prevents fat-like substances in our bloodstream
from oxidizing and clogging arteries, making blood platelets less sticky to each
other.The fat in chocolate is comprised of heart healthy oleic acid, stearic
acid (which neither raises nor lowers cholesterol) and palmitic acid, which
raise cholesterol. (only 1/3 of the fat raises cholesterol!)The above benefits
are negated when you eat milk chocolate. The proteins in milk bind antioxidants
and make them less available to be absorbed. Also, most light colored chocolates
contain large amounts of sugar, which can adversely affect the immune system.
When cocoa is processed into your favorite chocolate products, it goes through
several steps to reduce its naturally pungent taste. Flavonoids (polyphenols)
provide this pungent taste. The more chocolate is processed (such as
fermentation, alkalizing, roasting), the more flavonoids are lost. Remember,
those are antioxidants being processed away!Research done on an isolated island
showed inhabitants rarely had high blood pressure, even though they drank about
five cups of cocoa each day and incorporated it into many of their recipes.
Their cocoa though was not sprayed with pesticides, was not processed and did
not have added milk, sugar or soy lecithin as an emulsifier.That chewy,
caramel-marshmallow, nut-covered milk chocolate bar that you feel guilty about
has no health benefits and can only add to health problems. If you want to have
your chocolate and eat it too, then choose dark, organic chocolate. A square of
dark organic chocolate a day just may help keep the doctor away. Now, that?s the
best reason of all!? Page Remick ? All Rights reserved www.purezing.comPage
