World Chocolate Day is celebrated annually on July 7th. Chocolate comes in different flavours, including milk, white and dark chocolate. Some scientists now say that eating dark chocolate every day is better for you than eating vegetables. Our kind of scientist!!
Harpers Bazaar has included dark chocolate in their 11 Mood Boosting Foods For Winter to help decrease your anxiety levels. A couple small dark squares is all it takes (70% cocoa or more), not the whole bar!
“There’s a reason why chocolate always seems to make things better. A small square of dark chocolate causes the brain to release endorphins and boost serotonin levels. In a recent study, 30 people were given 40g of dark chocolate, over 14 days. The results showed that chocolate eaters produced less stress hormones and their anxiety levels decreased.”
