Chocolate Can Be Healthy
|Real chocolate is actually healthy. A fine, dark chocolate might not be as sweet, but comes with many health benefits. Especially if it is made from 100% pure cocoa butter (no vegetable oils) and with a high content of cocoa, the positive effects will be felt most strongly. The healthiest chocolate is the one that contains the highest amount of cocoa mass, which is usually dark chocolate. Milk- and white chocolate have fewer nutrients.|
It’s Good for Your Heart
A small bar everyday can help keep your heart and cardiovascular system running well. This is due to the large number of antioxidants that chocolate contains (nearly 8 times the number of strawberries).
Chocolate is good for the human heart. Maybe that’s what links chocolate to romance, making chocolate the most popular gift for Valentines Day.
The Secret to Happiness
Eating a chocolate bar when you’re feeling low can noticeably lift your spirits because it stimulates serotonin and endorphin levels, which are the brain’s natural chemical messengers to spread a feeling of pleasure or act as anti- depressants.
Chocolate contains theobromine, caffeine and other substances, which are stimulants that improve the mental or physical functions of the body.
"Not Focused? Eat Chocolate"
Raw Cacao is one of the highest plant-based sources of magnesium. Magnesium helps turn glucose into energy enabling your brain to work with laser-sharp clarity and focus. The reason why you might grab a piece of chocolate next time you work extra hours.
The smell of chocolate increases theta brain waves, which triggers relaxation.
Feels better Than Kissing
Research shows that eating chocolate gives humans a more intense mental high than kissing. The effect is more intense and lasts longer when we let the chocolate melt on our tongues.
