Dark Chocolate Protects You From Sunburns

867Flavonoids found in dark chocolate can protect you from the harmful UV rays of the sun. Unlike processed milk chocolate, dark chocolate contains high amounts of antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and UV protecting flavonoids. While you should always avoid prolonged exposure to the sun, dark chocolate can provide some added protection to your sun bathing routine.*

Dark chocolate can increase oxygen saturation and even boost blood flow. Purchase only the best dark chocolate available by looking for labels that read 60% pure cocoa (or more).
