CBD Chocolate Martini Recipe
Recently, dark chocolate has been all the rage on health food blogs. According to many foodie bloggers, eating a bit of dark chocolate every day could have tremendous health benefits. But are these sweet rumors backed by science? And, if so, how much chocolate is too much?
First off, there’s convincing evidence that dark chocolate contains many healing antioxidants. In fact, some researchers believe eating dark chocolate could improve heart and brain health. Get this: one recent study suggested people who consumed as little as 0.2 ounces of dark chocolate per day had a significantly lower risk of a heart attack.
Generally speaking, the more bitter your chocolate is, the more likely it will have a high concentration of antioxidants. Most nutritionists strongly recommend reaching for a chocolate bar that’s at least 70 percent dark. As for your daily dosage, try to keep it in the one to two-ounce range if you can restrain yourself!
