The health benefits of dark chocolate are no big secret as it helps the body with the nutrients needed and also acts as a powerful antioxidant to reduce risks of heart disease and blood pressure. However, the interesting part is that Dark Chocolate is also rich in Magnesium with 228 mg per 100 grams

Magnesium in general helps to ensure the smooth functioning of bodily functions and plays additional roles for women. It’s a must for pregnant women who should ideally consume 350 mg on a daily basis during pregnancy to boost fetal growth, tissue repair and also ease out leg cramping faced by many. Dark chocolate also helps in regulating mood swings and improving PMS symptoms for most women.

Mumbai restaurants and cafes offer a range of desserts with dark chocolate being the focal element. Here are 5 desserts for you to try out this World Chocolate day in our very own Mumbai
