HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
The health benefits of chocolate have long been touted – it can help lower blood pressure and “bad” LDL cholesterol, it helps fight inflammation and can reduce cardiovascular risk. Chocolate contains mood-boosting tryptophan as well as flavanoids that may protect the body from harmful free-radicals. In addition, studies have shown that chocolate milk can help aid in post-workout recovery for high-endurance athletes. The high protein and carbohydrate content in chocolate milk replenishes the body’s depleted nutrients and milk-based proteins in particular promote greater muscle protein synthesis than their soy-based counterparts.
