The Benefits Of Chocolate, According To Science

Almost everyone likes to eat chocolate and no one would complain if you told them it was actually good for you. But that may very well be true.

I recently read on article about it, it said that chocolate isn’t all sugar and calories. Scientific research suggests that there are beneficial properties in dark chocolate. Personally, I prefer milk chocolate but what can you do.

Dark chocolate containts antioxidants, which terminate the chain reactions that create harmful free radicals. Flavonols are present in cocoa, which, acording to recent research, may enhance brain blood flow and improve cognitive health.

Many people (including me) would tell you that eating chocolate has the ability to just make them feel better and there’s science to explain it! Eating chocolate releases serotonin in your brain, which is a ‘feel-good’ chemical and mood stabilizer.

So, why is chocolate so good for you?

  1. The amount of sugar, flavoring and dairy of a piece of chocolate can be identified by the remainder of the precentage cacao it has.
  2. The impact the flavor of chocolate in the processing, you can under- or overroast the bean, keep it raw, ferment differently and more.
  3. Your brain releases the feel-good chemical serotonin when you eat chocolate.
