A medical practitioner and member of the National Committee on the Promotion and Consumption of Cocoa (NCPCC), Dr Edward Amporful, has urged Ghanaians to consume dark chocolate due to its enormous health benefits to the body.

He explained that dark chocolate has powerful antioxidants that help deal with free radicals, and also have the ability to lower high blood pressure and sugar level. It is also good anti-aging food.

Dr Amporful told Rev Azigiza on the Gospel Breakfast Show (GBS) on Number One 105.3FM on Tuesday, 12 February that most stressful and other strenuous activities have negative consequences on the body.

However, he said dark chocolate helps in dealing with the effects of stress.

“Dark chocolate contains a lot of polyphenols, which are powerful antioxidants and they help deal with free radicals. They help in lowering blood pressure and blood sugar.”

He added: “It helps in brain functioning, it is an immune system booster and prevents cancer".
