3 Reasons Why Chocolate Makes People Happy

February 25th, 2012 ~ Est. reading time: 1 min, 3 secs

Relax. Chocolate is good for you.

Fact: chocolate makes people happy! If chocolate does it for you too, here are three key reasons why eating this sensual delicacy also makes perfect sense.

  1. Chocolate soothes the savage breast. Containing complex compounds that interact with your brain chemistry, chocolate really can calm you down and put you in a more relaxed state.
  2. Dark chocolate is also widely known for it’s health-giving flavonoids, making it one of a handful of  “superfoods.” Eating 40-50 grams (1½ oz.) a day is a strain you’ll just have to take (If you need it sweetened up, you can always try kinds with caramel or fruit and nuts).
  3. Good news! Drinking cocoa also improves your memory. Scientists announced this incredible revelation in 2011. So not only can you chew on chocolate to forget, but you can also drink it to remember.

Good quality chocolate is miles ahead in flavor and health benefits than the cheap, nasty stuff. So do yourself a favor and avoid cheap compounded chocolate, or chocolate containing a long list of weird or unknown ingredients. Honest chocolate has a satisfying melt-in-your-mouth texture, a pleasing aroma, and an intoxicating taste that leaves you feeling great. While the other, substandard stuff doesn’t even rate.

So go ahead and enjoy yourself with the best.  Not only does chocolate make people happy, now we can  also appreciate it for its direct health benefits. Like a crunchy ripe red apple, a little bit of chocolate has finally won its place as a  wellbeing treat.
