5 Reasons to Really Enjoy Chocolate

Poor Mans Chocolate
As well as being delicious, a good quality chocolate can also be good for you.

Here’s how:

  • It contains flavonoids, which is known to improve the body’s ability to fight disease and aging.
  • The higher the cocoa content, the more anti-oxidants it has – which may prevent heart disease, reduce blood pressure, and lower cholesterol.
  • It contains an essential amino acid that increases the production of serotonin, the body’s natural anti-depressant.
  • It also contains the chemical phenylethylamine – which occurs naturally in our bodies when we fall in love!
  • But best of all is the psychological effect – “allowing” yourself an occasional treat will also boost your mood.

Just remember our golden chocolate rule: keep it little, keep it luxurious!
