Chocolate is Good for You?

Filed under: blood pressure,chocolate,high cholesterol,Uncategorized — robertprice @ 9:14 am

Dark chocolate, which has 65 percent or higher amount of cocoa, if eaten in moderation has many
health benefits.

It has some of the most influence on the circulatory system. Dark chocolate has the ability to lower both blood pressure and cholesterol. It can actually reduce bad cholesterol, LDL, up to 10%.

For many people chocolate is a feel-good-food. Here’s why. Chocolate encourages the production of endorphin which gives you a good feeling. Due to this quality and because of serotonin, a component of chocolate, dark chocolate even acts as an anti-depressent. So next time you are feeling down, you know what to do.

A common remark that people make about chocolate is that they will gain weight by eating it. This is true. In order to get the benefits from dark chocolate you have to eat it in moderation. You could try convincing yourself otherwise by knowig that only 1/3 of the fat from dark chocolate is actually bad for you. As well, when eating dark chocolate, make sure not to drink milk with it. Doing this rids you of the benefits you would have gotten from the chocolate. This is because the milk can prevent antioxidants from being absorbed, thus make the dark chocolate of no use besides calories eaten.

5 Ways to Reduce Stress


Try Writing – Write about everything you think is causing you stress. Write about all those little things that annoy you, agitate you. Write about something that happened that made you angry, or sad. Write about something that you find pleasure in, maybe a short story with a cliché happy ending. Just write for the sake of writing, it might take your mind off the thing(s) that make you stressed out.

Talk It Out – Find someone you know you can trust and who is a good listener who won’t judge you. Then let it all out. Talk about that thing at work that you find frustrating, like that paper that your boss just won’t accept. Talk about something that made you sad, cry if you have to. Get angry if you must, just don’t keep all the emotion bottled inside you, it has a way of just erupting at the most inopportune moments.

Exercise – Getting regular exercise is one of, if not the best way to relieve stress. It allows you to have a physical outlet for all that stress that’s been bringing you down. Stretching will help with muscle tension and many people find stretching relaxing. Why not work on some deep breathing at the same time to help you relax.

Eat Some Chocolate – Chocolate makes you happy and when you are stressed out being happy is the one thing in the world you need. Not only will chocolate lighten your mood, it tastes really good too.

Listen To Music – Music is such a powerful tool. There is a lot of music that will help you calm down and relax. Even though it might not be your preferred type of music try listening to something slower or more mellow. Although it is a little bit weird it does work. I personally am a rock and metal music fan. However, sometimes it’s good to listen to something a bit slower. Even if you’re not into going to something like the sound of ocean waves you can still go more for a soft rock song. Maybe one of the slower songs from the groups “Muse,” or “Red Hot Chili Peppers.”
