For centuries, chocolate has been used to improve health and boost mood, but what does the real research say? Well, for example, did you know that:
- In 2008, a study found that people who ate a small amount of dark chocolate daily had lower levels of a protein that is associated with inflammation?
- Numerous studies have shown that blood platelets clump together more slowly in chocolate eaters, which means a reduced risk of high blood pressure and improved blood flow.
- In 2009, a study found that people did a better job of counting backwards in groups of three after they had consumed hot cocoa which contained flavonoids, a compound found naturally in chocolate. Who knows? Maybe eating a bit more chocolate will make balancing your checkbook a bit easier!
- Certain chocolates are rich in antioxidants which can help boost immunity, reduce inflammation, and improve overall wellness.
