We have always been told chocolate make us get fat and also produces caries and zits. Anyway most of us feel such a strong attraction to this food –and the annual turnover of this product is so big- that companies have assigned huge economical resources to deeply study all its properties and composition.
We are to be congratulated because the more research is done, the more benefits are found. Different recent studies have proved that besides make us a little happier, chocolate is rich in iron and magnesium, source of antioxidants and anticoagulants, have anti-inflammatory properties, reduce cholesterol, is good for our heart and doesn’t produce caries and zits.
And not only doesn’t make us get fat but also reduces by up to 17% the calories we will consume during the next hours if we eat it just after a meal, which means it helps preventing obesity.
So go for it, eat chocolate and enjoy life! But control yourself a little bit and remember we are talking about dark chocolate or chocolate with milk at the most, not about chocolate cookies, chocolate cakes or chocolate mixed with tones of grease and sugar.
