Is dark chocolate healthy?

  1. Dark chocolate is said to be good for your health. It is said to have a beneficial effect on heart and blood vessels. Although some studies show that there is indeed a small positive effect, it is better not to overeat it. It also contains a lot of saturated fat and calories. That is why it is not listed in the Wheel of Five. Various positive health effects are attributed to chocolate, as well as negative ones. Much research is being done on this. The results on this vary.

Can chocolate help prevent cardiovascular disease?

  1. Cocoa powder, dark, extra bitter chocolate, raw cocoa powder and raw chocolate have a beneficial effect on the blood vessels due to the high content of flavanols (antioxidants). Research has shown that taking more than 200 milligrams of cocoa flavanols daily has a positive effect on the elasticity of the blood vessels. This equates to 10 grams of extra dark chocolate or chocolate made from raw cocoa, or 2.5 grams of raw cocoa powder. Research has also compared people who eat chocolate with people who do not eat chocolate. People who eat chocolate had less cardiovascular disease. This concerns small amounts of chocolate. The studies do not show whether someone actually gets healthier by eating more chocolate. Read more about other (alleged) health effects of chocolate

Saturated fat

  1. Chocolate contains a lot of saturated fat (about 20 grams per 100 grams). Saturated fat increases the LDL cholesterol level in the blood and that actually increases the risk of cardiovascular disease. It is said that the saturated fatty acid stearic acid in chocolate is not bad for your heart and vessels. But there is little scientific evidence for this.
