Good News For Chocoholics…..???

For all you chocoholics out there, listen up….It’s been proved that chocolate is actually good for you!! Unfortunately, it’s just dark chocolate that’s considered a healthy treat!!

Dark chocolate, good for your heart

Milk chocolate is a BIG favourite of mine, but it’s full of sugar, whereas dark chocolate is a low glycemic alternative and is considered a heart healthy food.

Dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants which protect us from disease and help to slow down the aging process. It has also been proved, in recent studies, that it can help lower your blood pressure and help improve our memory.

Some might say that a bar of dark chocolate would be good while studying for an exam! It is also good for your mood!! Chocolate contains phenylethylamine (PEA), which is the same chemical that your brain creates when you feel like you’re falling in love. PEA encourages your brain to release endorphins, so eating dark chocolate will make you feel happier.

But please, remember, ALL chocolate should be eaten in moderation!! Although dark chocolate is considered good for your heart and memory, it’s not good for your waistline…Remember, calories!!
