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?

    great video! We are all alchemists and something such as chocolate can truly boost happiness without harm. I do not believe in extremism so when I feel like indulging in chocolate I do and I truly enjoy it!

    What type of chocolate would you recommend? You mention not typical chocolate, but is organic okay? Or would you recommend raw chocolate for the health benefits you describe in the video?

    It’s not that heavy is it? It’s part of the raw food culture and natural hygiene that cacao is a stimulant and theobromine (found in cacao) is poisonous for the human body… That’s why Ka said he was making a bold statement

    I’ve been following the raw food movement for the past 6 mo’s or so, and have found that it’s similar to politics and religion, everyone has their own idea what is right. Like anything, do your research, and decide for yourself what works for you. Personally, I love using raw cocao, Is it harmful, well, let’s face it, I could be doing much more harmful things to my body then eating chocolate.
