Default Why Dark Chocolate is Good For You

Gut bacteria play a role in why dark chocolate is so good for you - Medical News Today

"The good microbes, such as Bifidobacterium and lactic acid bacteria, feast on chocolate," she says. "When you eat dark chocolate, they grow and ferment it, producing compounds that are anti-inflammatory."

Anything that justifies a square, or two, of 85% dark chocolate is welcome news!
