I’m a chocoholic. And for the sake of pounds, I have to avoid it like the plague. Of late though, I have been getting my chocolate fix with a little square of dark chocolate. It’s amazingly satisfying and has health benefits to boot!
CNN health is reporting that a chocolate a day will keep the heart doctors away! One study reviewed found people who consume chocolate reduce their risk of stroke or heart attack by 39% due to lowered blood pressure. Similar to other studies findings it warns that the amount of chocolate consumed daily was a mere 7.5 grams per day. Let’s be honest 7.5 grams won’t keep your chocolate addiction at bay, but another way to satisfy the chocolate fix without overdoing it is to use chocolate infused beauty products!
