Eat chocolate and live longer! This is “LifeCycles” with Laurie Edwards-Tate, President, At Your Home Familycare.

The good news about chocolate keeps coming.  Studies from Japan, Germany, and Norway show that chocolate benefits the heart and brain by lower cholesterol and blood pressure while increasing blood flow. It reduces inflammation.

This lowers your risk of cardiovascular disease and heart attacks.  Eating chocolate even protects your skin from sun damage… but you still need to use sunscreen.

Dark chocolate is best, and just a few ounces daily gives you all these benefits. It’s sweet news!
