HEALTH: Chocolate & Stress

Chocolate is very healthy. Very, very healthy.

Many psychiatrists say chocolate reduces the excretion of cortisol that is directed related to stress. Eating just 40 grams of dark chocolate actually has some benefits to the “fight or flight” mechanism that runs throughout the body. Cocoa has always been shown to have benefits to human metabolism and many studies have been performed to show that chocolate consumption is indeed a must for the heart and the mind.

According to Psych Central News, scientists found dark chocolate is the type one should choose.

In the study, scientists identified reductions in stress hormones and other stress-related biochemical changes in volunteers who rated themselves as highly stressed and ate dark chocolate for two weeks.

Get some dark cocoa in your life for those stressful days.
