This is normal because people who play sports try to monitor the health of their bodies and eat predominantly healthy and non-harmful foods. And although the composition of the chocolate has long been studied by scientists, the debate about its effect on the body has not subsided so far. But be that as it may, scientists still have not come to a consensus on the benefits of chocolate for athletes.
