4 Healthy Reasons to Enjoy Chocolate Frequently

Written by Ka Sundance

Who doesn’t love eating chocolates and how can they possibly not? Chocolates are delicious and a favorite edible, especially for women (though many men enjoy chocolate just as much). But eating too many chocolates is often discouraged as it is said that the high calories in it can lead to weight gain. Contrary to popular opinion though, there are many reasons why eating chocolate may actually be very good for your health.

enjoy chocolateTo say that chocolate is healthy can be difficult to digest. But when we espouse the goodness of these sweet treats, we are not speaking of the commercial chocolate varieties flooding the market shelves nor is it recommended that you binge on them inordinately. Neither of these will yield any favorable results for your body. However, eating small and measured amounts of high-quality organic chocolates purchased from your local raw-foods store can be extremely beneficial. Here are four healthy reasons to enjoy chocolate frequently.

Chocolate Makes You Feel Good

Chocolate is not just delicious, but it can instantly make you feel better and more relaxed. Studies have shown that cacao is replete with natural properties that can help to enliven your mood and relieve stress. A piece of chocolate a day will keep your spirits high and you will be less likely to get bogged down by depressing thoughts.

Chocolate is Wonderful for Your Heart

Cacao is said to have a spiritual impact on your heart. Eating chocolates open the chakra of the heart and can thus make for a spiritually wonderful experience as well. The claim has also been substantiated by some studies and analysis that show the possibility of a strong connection between eating chocolates and spiritual well-being. After all, isn’t chocolate often offered as an example of a food for love or food for the heart.

Raw Chocolates Support Weight Loss

A few studies have shown that raw chocolate can actually be beneficial for those on a diet. Eating even a small amount of chocolate can be a fulfilling experience and can effectively curb your cravings for other junk foods that are much unhealthier in comparison. Eating a small portion of chocolate a day will prevent you from getting hungry quickly and digging into a pizza or a bag of chips.

Antioxidant and Healthy Food Choice

Cacao has been found to be rich in anti-oxidants that keeps deadly diseases at bay and it has no saturated fats and can thus keep cholesterol levels in check and prevent ailments such as diabetes.

These 4 healthy reasons to enjoy chocolate frequently are really all you need. Organic chocolate helps you immensely in the path to becoming healthy not only in body but also in mind. When on a diet, you do not have to subsist on carrot sticks and feeling deprived of that you enjoyed eating. Giving up chocolates for your diet can be difficult, but as it turns out, it really is not necessary. All you have to do is choose the right kind of chocolate and consume it in discreet quantities to make it an important part of your daily diet. Do you really need any more reasons to chocolate frequently?

    Ka ♥ I respect your rights to have these opinions you’re one of the few that have spoken in a balanced way about this lifestyle + also trying to unite the Raw food community I respect you for that but man surely we shouldn’t be hyping up how good raw chocolate is especially cacao knowing that this has no other benefit to the mind than to stimulate a fake short term smile and happiness and like all drugs the user will require more and more to get their daily fix its highly addictive and toxic ♥

    Big difference: I do NOT make any money with the related products. I do not sell any chocolate, or have ANY affiliate links, you see?? So what interest would I have to promote this message? It´s simple: I believe in it. You rather have a little piece (not more, and I make this clear in the video) of raw, organic chocolate every day and feel more happy, than trying to force you to eat strictly “by the book” and become grumpy and therefor unhealthy! I respect your opinion, well this is mine!

    Ka, what do you think about the problem with cacao that people have – maybe because of the the powders form ? maybe when people use the cacao whole beans and proccess it themselves then the body shouldnt react negativly to it? do you feel difference with powders and beans? would be nice if you make video on this controversies. i don’t eat cacao personally as precaution and cacao beans are usually too expensive.

    I mention this because I hear that a woman taking Reishi while pregnant is incredibly beneficial for the development of the child. It is a very interesting concept (superfood nutrition during pregnancy) that I’m sure in the future will be explored thoroughly through research. Super kids!

    True true! I had Japanese Matcha chocolate with raw cacao inside of it. I am a very happy momma tonight. We were at our country club and my husband is feeling yucky from margaritas and beer and I am feeling great because I don’t drink and I treat myself with expensive imported matcha dark chocolate
