Because I'm a major chocoholic, I decided to go on the hunt for the benefits of eating chocolate just so I could have a reason to eat more of the sweet stuff.
And it turns out that there were more benefits of eating chocolate than I originally thought!
(woo-hoo!) So, that’s right, fellow chocoholics, our addiction is healthy (err…somewhat)...
here are 7 benefits of eating chocolate!
1. Your Heart
Eating chocolate helps your heart.
Research from Sweden concluded that #women, who ate one to two servings of dark chocolate daily, decreased their chances of having heart failures by one-third.
Even better, a German study conceded that having one square of dark chocolate a day reduced the risk of having a heart attack and stroke by thirty-nine percent!
Blood pressure was also lowered as a result.
These seem like pretty good reasons to indulge and reap the benefits of eating chocolate, doesn’t it, ladies?
