10 Great Things That Eating Chocolate Says About You


8. You Want to Keep Inflammation Down in Your Body

Chocolate that is high in flavanols are known to have anti-inflammatory aspects, specifically towards your brain. Studies have shown that cocoa flavanols–a naturally occurring compound–help maintain brain function and assist in improving blood vessel function.

The Mars company has discovered a way to extract flavanols from chocolate to be able to supply people with chocolate flavanols in pill form. Scientists are still researching if chocolate can help with learning and curbing memory loss, which will lower the risk of Alzheimer’s.

Beneficial microbes will also reduce inflammation in the tissues in and around the heart. When inflammation is reduced in the cardiovascular tissue, it reduces your chances of stoke. Keeping overall inflammation down in the body will result in healthier joints and a reduced risk of arthritis.

7. You Understand a Healthier Way of Relaxation

Although chocolate has calories, it also has a natural chemical that increases the theta brain waves. This is the same brain wave that occurs when you have a dream. When these brain waves are triggered, they help release overall tension from your brain. There are many drugs available that will assist in triggering the theta brain waves, but most of them are illegal. Chocolate is a safe and legal method of relaxation.

Dark chocolate also increases the nitric acid level in your blood, which helps with controlling blood pressure.
