There is no one who can deny that they do not like eating chocolates. Chocolates are an all-time go and are also mood boosters for many. If you love eating chocolate then we have a good news for you. Do you know there are a lot of benefits you can gather from eating more chocolates?
Good quality chocolate (i.e. dark chocolate, or containing at least 70 percent cocoa) is chockablock with antioxidants and vitamins. So, chocolate could be boosting our health if consumed on a regular basis and in moderation.
Here below we have 5 reasons why you should eat more chocolates:
>Mood Booster: Chocolate contains tryptophan, a chemical distributed in the brain. Tryptophan helps produce serotonin. Serotonin makes you happy. So next time you are stressed out, you can always have a bite of chocolate to make yourself feel good.
>Protects Teeth: It is often said that eating too much of chocolates can actually damage your teeth with cavities. Well, Cocoa butter contained in chocolate actually covers teeth with a protective film, which can help against plaque and bacteria build up. Forget whatever your miserable dentist is telling you and go for eating chocolates.
>It's good for the heart and circulation: Researchers have found that dark chocolate helps restore flexibility to arteries while also averting white blood cells from sticking to the walls of blood vessels - both common causes of artery clogging.
>It reduces cholesterol: You might get surprised but consumption of cocoa has been shown to reduce levels of “bad” cholesterol (LDL) and raise levels of “good” cholesterol, theoretically dropping the risk of cardiovascular disease.
>It may prevent diabetes: You might find it crazy and unbelievable but cocoa has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity. So dark chocolate - in moderation - might delay or prevent the onset of diabetes.
