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. Wow! These seem like pretty good reasons to indulge and reap the benefits of eating chocolate, doesn’t it, ladies?
