Who says chocolates makes fat? But researches are telling something else. I have compiled 5 Reasons You Should Eat Dark Chocolate. Check it out.
5 Reasons You Should Eat Chocolate !
# 1. WEIGHT LOSS
Yes, chocolate helps, not adds weight but keep in mind, we are talking about dark chocolate – throw away that milk chocolate and develop a taste of dark chocolate. because it’s loaded with benefits.. Researchers at University of Copenhagen found that it helps you feel filled up, making you not need or crave bigger portions otherwise, allowing you to stick to your low calorie diet in general otherwise!
# 2. DESTRESS
Yes, we all love unwrapping that beautiful slab of chocolate when upset, depressed or stressed, don’t we? Well, apart from the increase in your weight, it’s not really the worst thing in the world because research from Switzerland has found when anxious people chugged down about an ounce of dark chocolate everyday for two weeks, their stress hormones level were lower!
# 3. WORK SMART
So chocolate does help kill the stress, but do you know it’ll also give your brain that added energy it needs sometimes? Dark chocolate has been found to boost blood flow to key parts of the brain for up to 2 to 3 hours, improving short term performance!
# 4. CALM YOUR COUGHS
Chocolate has supposedly theobromine, that chemical which gives off that good feeling effect, and it suppresses activity in a part of the brain called the vagus nerve- relevant to calming down coughs! Of course, cough syrups don’t get any better than this.
# 5. FIGHT DIABETES
The most unexpected one of all I saved for the last. You’d think that chocolate is the root cause of all bad things called diabetes. But no, It actually helps ! In a small Italian study where people ate dark chocolate everyday for two weeks, their potential for insulin resistance dropped by half!
