Chocolate pie, chocolate milkshakes, chocolate cake, chocolate bars…I really don’t care what form it comes in, I just LOVE chocolate!
Usually, I try to abstain from the treat as much as possible. I’ve always thought that it would lead to acne, rotten teeth, and other health problems, but it turns out that the opposite is true. If consumed regularly in moderation, chocolate has many physical and mental benefits.
Here are 22 reasons that you can eat chocolate without feeling guilty. Who knew that an indulgence was also a great way to keep your body in tip-top shape? Safe to say, I’m going to be eating a lot more chocolate from now on!
1. Eating chocolate releases serotonin in the brain, which leads to feelings of happiness and well-being.
2. Dark chocolate is chock-full of flavonoids, antioxidants that help reduce your risk of heart disease.
3. It also helps to hydrate the skin. Those who eat dark chocolate have denser skin and fewer wrinkles than those who do not.
