 It’s good for the heart

Chocolate is known to have properties that help control blood pressure levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. Research shows that chocolate lowers the possibility of heart attacks as they help prevent blood clots from forming. A 2011 Swedish study has found that women who eat chocolate regularly have a 20 per cent less chance of a getting a stroke.

Great for a cough

If you have a cough that is hard to beat, then chocolate can help. Chocolate contains theobromine that helps reduce activity in a certain part of the brain known as vagus nerve– responsible for triggering coughing fits. If you are experiencing uncontrollable coughing, just pop in a chocolate.

Cancer prevention powers                

Research studies have shown that a compound called Pentamer found in chocolate can stop cancer cells from spreading. Also the antioxidants in chocolates have properties that attack cell damage and prevent tumour growth.

Chocolate has blood thinning and clot preventing properties that improve overall blood flow and circulation in the body. A 2008 study conducted by Harvard University showed that regular chocolate intake speeds up blood flow to the cerebral arteries.
