A recent study from Italy showed that people who ate a moderate amount of dark chocolate had a significant reduction in a risk for heart disease. Does this mean that you should stop what you’re doing and move to Italy and eat dark chocolate? Yes!
Does this mean you should eat more dark chocolate? If you can limit yourself to 1 – 3 small pieces each week, not each day, then researchers found a decrease in CRP levels. CRP is C-Reactive Protein and high levels are associated with heart disease.
