Indulge in Chocolate
and Reap the Benefits
Indulging in chocolate may seem as sinful as it is sweet, but lucky for us, there are a myriad of reasons that make this decadent treat nearly guilt-free.
Did you know that chocolate really can heal your heart? Or, at least reduce your risk of heart disease. Not only is cacao the highest plant-based source of iron, it is also high in calcium, manganese, fiber, and magnesium. These nutrients are important for a healthy heart and peak brain function – chocolate can give you laser-sharp clarity and focus. Dark chocolate is also a powerful antioxidant that can keep us looking and feeling younger longer. More great benefits of dark chocolate are shiny hair, strong nails, and glowing skin.
Is this marvelous food actually an aphrodisiac? A great source of scientifically proven bliss chemicals – serotonin and phenylethylamine – it is associated with cozy feelings of well being and happiness. Chocolate creates the same endorphins that the brain creates when we fall in love and during sexual activity, leaving you feeling light hearted and overjoyed.
So, where can you satisfy your sweet tooth with high quality chocolate, that sacrifices neither flavor nor health benefits?
