Eating chocolate everyday could lower the risk of diabetes and heart disease, particularly when it comes to dark chocolate, say researchers. On top of that, studies also suggest that a daily chocolate consumption can reduced insulin resistance and improved liver enzyme levels. So the nasty question might be : Could dark chocolate be included on dietary recommendations ? Prof.Stranges and colleagues say their findings suggest that chocolate consumption may reduce the risk of developing cardiometabolic disorders by improving liver enzyme levels and protecting against insulin resistance. However, he notes that is important to distinguish the difference between chocolate that contains natural cocoa and processed chocolate; the latter is much higher in calories. « Therefore, physical activity, diet and other lifestyle factors must be carefully balanced to avoid detrimental weight gain over time, » he adds.
