Here is a message of comfort to many – chocolate is good for your health!
The more scientists learn about chocolate, the more amazing chocolate seems.
According to recent research, chocolate provides a mental boost by increasing blood flow to the brain. The effect of this is that chocolate is good for improving memory and attention.
Chocolate may also be good for the skin. A German study found that women who were given chocolate cocoa every day for a period of three months had skin that was moister and softer, probably as a result of improved blood circulation.
Chocolate may provide protection against heart disease. Researchers have found that dark chocolate consumption reduces hypertension, reduces cholesterol levels, and adds protection against blood clots.
Less surprisingly chocolate makes people ‘feel good’. Many people resort to chocolate when feeling down, which is OK in moderation. Remember the actual problem must be dealt with eventually.
Chocolate is also known to be an aphrodisiac.
Keep it in moderation, but enjoy a little chocolate in your life – your health may depend on it!
A little of what you fancy is good, as long as it is kept in moderation. This is part of sensible eating…
