Is chocolate beneficial for your health?

Cocoa beans are full of antioxidants, which neutralize free radicals, helping to prevent oxidative stress and reducing the risk of chronic diseases. In addition, its richness in polyphenols promotes the metabolism and oxidation of fats.

The flavonoids present in cocoa help lower blood pressure, reduce cardiovascular and stroke risks thanks to their vasodilator effect. It is therefore a superfood for the heart and arteries!

Additionally, these flavonoids improve intellectual and cognitive performance, helping to combat age-related decline, according to studies from Harvard University. Giving your grandparents a box of chocolates could therefore be a good idea.

Chocolate is also known for its morale-boosting effect. Phenylethylamine, nicknamed the "chemical substance of love", naturally present in cocoa, acts as a neurotransmitter promoting the release of endorphins, the hormones of happiness. So, moderate chocolate consumption can improve mood and reduce stress. In addition, the theanine contained in cocoa improves alertness and concentration!

In addition, chocolate contains magnesium, an essential mineral for the regulation of the nervous system. However, the magnesium contained in cocoa is poorly assimilated, not covering the daily needs on its own.

For athletes, cocoa is also beneficial because it reduces cortisol levels, responsible for muscle cramps and declines in performance, while reducing oxygen consumption.

Does chocolate cause pimples?

Good news: cocoa itself does not cause pimples. However, some other ingredients it contains can... Milk, sugar, saturated fatty acids, as well as preservatives and additives, can overload the liver, especially during the holidays.

If you already suffer from skin inflammations such as acne, eczema, or rashes, the sugar in chocolate may make these pre-existing symptoms worse. So you might have to choose between the log and the chocolates.

In summary, chocolate is good for our health and has the power to cheer us up and brighten our days. But it is important not to overdo it and to remain aware of the possible effects on our skin. The main thing is to find a balance, and enjoy each piece of chocolate in moderation and consciously.
