Having trust issues is due to the fact that I redirected dark chocolate with more chocolate, thinking it would be more ‘sweeter’ (by adding more chocolate I assumed it would be darker than usual. Stupid me, quite.). But you all know how it turned out. BITTER!
Nevertheless, I can’t place the blame on something else for my stupidity. Also, it turns out that ‘this’ chocolate may lack sweetness, but offers more benefits than any other sweet chocolate.
Boosts Brain function
As the chocolate contains cocoa, its richness ensures that blood flows to the brain. Consequently, efficiency increases.
Helps in improving Skin health
Copper, iron, magnesium, and other minerals and vitamins are all present in dark chocolate. For example, Calcium helps repair and renew skin.
Reduces the Risk of developing Diabetes
Right amounts of Dark chocolate consumed could actually improve how the body metabolizes glucose. Dark chocolate contains Flavonoid which is likely to reduce stress. And then improving the resistance in insulin and eventually the risk of developing Diabetes.
Dark Chocolate is Nutritious
As it contains flavonoids, cacao, magnesium to name a few. That helps the body in so many ways.
Is a great Help during Pregnancy for Mothers
Studies have shown that it improves fetal health. Especially, when the mother is struggling with high blood pressure which is common during pregnancy. Though the compounds have not been determined precisely, it is assumed that is the flavonol this chocolate contains.
Rich in Antioxidants
Dark chocolate has numerous Potent Antioxidants that help the body. Like for example, free radicals are the prerequisite for cancer and antioxidants can help destroy free radicals before they spread
So, now you do have an excuse to eat Chocolate? But keep this thing in mind. At the end of the day it is only CHOCOLATE; that means it will and has sugar and saturated fat, which can single handedly take over the pros of ‘the’ product. Too much of anything has never had a happy ending. So, MIND the amount.
