I don't know about you, but I love chocolate. I'm certainly not the type who will shy away from any chocolatey desserts.
Good news for all of us chocolate lovers --- the superfood chocolate can be nutritious. It is dense with minerals, including calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, potassium, phosphorus, and manganese. Minerals have been called the essence of life and the key to health. They are responsible for keeping your muscles, nerves, and bones healthy. Not to mention boosting your immune system - which could mean fewer sick days in your future!
Chocolate is full of antioxidants and flavanols. Eating chocolate can lower blood pressure and improve blood circulation (contributing the good eyesight and the health of your vital organs). It can also ease congestion and decrease inflammation.
Grab a helping of chocolate if you're feeling at wit's end. Chocolate can help you feel more at ease, calm, and contented. It can help you keep your brain sharp and boost memory.
Chocolate helps you keep your skin hydrated and protected from the sun and fights wrinkles. And it even replenishes carbohydrates and recovers your muscles.
So next time you get that chocolate craving, listen to your body. Consider chocolate a secret ingredient to a happy, healthy lifestyle - a bite-size boost at your fingertips.
Listen to your body for sure. And know that while chocolate contains minerals, antioxidants, and flavanols that create real mental and physical health benefits -- not all chocolates are created equal.
The price of cheap chocolate for the body and our communities is high.
Chocolates can contain high levels of lead and cadmium, exposure to which have deleterious effects on the brain, immune and nervous system, hormones, and can result in cognitive issues.
