The Benefits of Being a dark chocoholic 

Hurrahhhhh! It’s okay to eat chocolate… but of the darker variation. I love chocolate, I get mocked about it at work because I always need my chocolate hit around about 2pm. I’m a proud chocolatier but why is Dark chocolate so good for you? Let’s have a look at some of the benefits to your health and wellness: 

  1. scientific studies have shown eating dark chocolate can improve brain function. When you need that boost mid afternoon don’t go for a coffee grab 2 squares of dark chocolate! 
  2. It’s good for the heart and circulation. A recent study found that dark chocolate helps restore flexibility to arteries while also preventing white blood cells from sticking to the walls of blood vessels – both common causes of artery clogging.
  3.  It can help you lose weight. Neuroscientist Will Clower says a small square of good choc melted on the tongue 20 minutes before a meal triggers the hormones in the brain that say “I’m full”, cutting the amount of food you subsequently consume. Finishing a meal with the same small trigger could reduce subsequent snacking.

Amazing!!!! So why not switch your chocolate habits over to the dark side and get your flavonoids, anti inflammatory and antioxidant effects with dark chocolate.
