Benefits Of Raw Chocolate For Health
Graphic © herbshealthhappiness.com

Raw chocolate (pure unroasted cacao, without added sugar) is very beneficial to the body and science indicates it may benefit the function of several organ systems [e.g., heart, brain, liver].

Raw chocolate is extremely nutrient-dense, with numerous beneficial ingredients, such as fiber, iron, magnesium, manganese, copper, potassium, and zinc. [1]

The primary role of fiber is to ensure the proper digestion of food by optimizing the gut microbiome and regulating the absorption of food. By all measurements, fiber is considered the best product to detoxify and cleanse the gastrointestinal tract. [2]

Moreover, the other minerals found in raw chocolate enhance metabolism, cognition, and the immune system. [3]

Cacao and dark chocolate are also loaded in antioxidants that exceed the efficacy of other fruits, such as blueberries and acai berries, which is thought to drastically reduce the risk of many pathologies, including cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative ailments [e.g., Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease], and type 2 diabetes. [4]

To top it all off, raw chocolate has been found by studies to improve blood circulation [5], lipid metabolism [6], and cholesterol oxidation [7] across the arterial system [e.g., coronary artery].

Finally, the regular consumption of dark chocolate is linked to a lower risk of UV light-induced cellular damage, which eventually decreases the risk of numerous dermatological conditions and even skin cancer. When assessing this effect, researchers found that eating chocolate doubles the minimal erythemal dose [MED], which is the necessary amount of UVB light to induce redness after being exposed to the sun. [8]
