Apples & Dark Chocolate

Two of my favorites foods working together to provide great antioxidant benefits! Apples and dark chocolate are two foods that everyone should be eating more of. Both are low in calories, high in fiber, sweet to taste, and have a lot of health benefits. Even if one is eaten without the other or mixed together, they will still have some great health benefits! I love apple slices dipped in dark chocolate as a snack and a treat!!

The powerful combination of nutrients and antioxidants in apples and dark chocolate are excellent for your heart and overall health. They can be eaten together, baked together or eaten separately but I think they should always be included in your diet... it's a great treat with great health benefits!

Apples not only taste great, but they also provide a huge number of health benefits. Apples are good for your heart because they help to reduce the risk of plaque build-up... or atherosclerosis.

Apples and Dark Chocolate also help lower cholesterol levels, which protect against the formation of blood clots and also slows and prevents cell damage. Apples not only protect cells from free radical damage, but they also stimulate the production of antioxidants within those cells.

Apples also help reduce the risk of skin cancer. Apples help to prevent skin cancer because they contain high amounts of Phenolic compounds, Quercetin and Myricetin. Remember "An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away"
