If you feel lonely and you want to drown in your sorrows? Worry no more because DARK CHOCOLATES are here for you! If you are in a great relationship, you are most likely to receive a fancy dinner for two from a fancy restaurant, nice flowers, and of course, boxes of Special DARK CHOCOLATES!
But, don’t you know that there are 10 reasons why chocolates are to die for?
1. Dark chocolates are good for the heart.
Eating a serving of dark chocolate a week lowers your risk of heart failure. Eating a square of dark chocolate daily lowers your blood pressure.
2. Dark chocolates are rich with antioxidants.
Dark chocolate contains hefty amounts of disease-fighting flavonoids. Antioxidants also found in red wine and many fruits and vegetables. In fact, it appears to have more flavonoids than any other food.
3. Dark chocolate relieves coughs and diarrhea.
Bother less with the misnomer on chocolates that aggravates cough because it’s the other way around! A study also showed that chocolates have the same cough-relieving powers as codeine without any of the negative effects. Not only that, the Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute found that flavonoids work with a protein that regulates the small intestine.
4. Dark chocolates are good for the brain… They can make you smarter! Say What?!
Eating dark chocolates that are high in flavonoids improves blood circulation to the brain for a good two to three hours after consumption. A test also proved that people who ate flavonoid-rich diets score higher on tests than people who don’t.
5. Dark chocolate protects your skin from the scorching sunbeam.
People who eat chocolates high in flavonoids have a reduced risk of getting a sunburn.
7. Dark chocolates reduce stress.
Swiss scientists found that when anxious people ate an ounce and a half of dark chocolate every day for two weeks, their stress hormone levels will significantly reduce.
8. Dark chocolates help you lose weight.
Adding dark chocolate to your diet will only have positive effects. Dark chocolate gives off a sensation that makes people feel more full, so you can quit eating sooner.
9. Dark chocolate goes hand in hand with exercise.
Eating dark chocolates and working out go quite well together. The flavonoids in chocolate keep your blood pressure low while you work out, which can reduce the risk of a heart attack.
10. Chocolates can make your LOVED ones happier.
So, there you have it folks! Don’t be afraid to indulge into these sweet dark chocolates when you’re feeling pensive, lonely, sick or even happy.
