  • There are some health benefits that come with eating chocolate. Dark chocolate in particular is rich in antioxidants.
  • The carbohydrates in chocolate can raise serotonin levels in the brain resulting in a sense of well being.
  • However, chocolate comes with its negative points. As well as being able to boost your antioxidant levels by 20%. Chocolate is also high in saturated fat, suguars and calories which in turn can increase cholesterol levels and the risk of heart disease.
  • It is also known to trigger headaches and migraines
  • Adding milk to dark chocolate can cancel out the health properties so eating a bar of milk, or worse, white chocolate will not have the same effect as eating a bar of dark chocolate!
  • So, chocolate can be eaten as part of a balanced diet but only in moderation!!
