Reasons to eat more chocolate!

Chocolate is everyone’s favorite. Chocolate is the ultimate comfort food, the best stress reliever, a reliable source of consolation when life lets us down. But is it at all healthy? If you have lots of it, then obviously not. But there are a couple of medically proven ways in which dark chocolate ( with a cocoa percentage of around seventy per cent or more ) is  really is good for us. Here are the reasons you should eat more chocolate:

  1. Reduces Stress

    Whenever you feel down and anxious because of stress. Sit back, relax and have some chocolate. Watch all you worries wash away. It contains valeric acid, a relaxant and tranquilliser found naturally in valerian root, and although not so great for the waistline, the sugar in chocolate may also reduce stress.

  3. Reduces chances of diabetes

    Can you believe that chocolates can help in reducing the chances of diabetes? High intake of flavonoids is linked to reduced insulin resistance and improved glucose regulation. Type 2 diabetes is caused by insulin resistance. But it is important not to over-indulge as most chocolate contains a lot of fat and sugar.

  5. Chocolate makes you feel better

    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 feel-good endorphins.
