A recent study conducted by Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University observed lower blood sugar levels in mice that were given dark chocolate. Cocoa, used to make chocolates, contain antioxidant properties which help in lowering blood sugar levels. The high levels of flavanoids found in Cocoa also helps to guard against Type 2 Diabetes.
