Reduce Stress Eat More Chocolate


Your dreams may have just come true, there is now a healthy reason to eat chocolate.   A recent study done by the Nestle Research Center in Lausanne, Switzerland, showed that eating dark chocolate helped reduce the levels of stress hormones in people who had high anxiety levels.  This study had participants eat a candy bar  of approximately 1.4 ounces each day for two weeks.

Blood test later revealed a reduced level of cortisol, a stress hormone, as well as an increase in flavonoids (an antioxidant).  Higher intakes of chocolate did not prove to increase the levels of cortisol or flavonoids.  The researchers cautioned that chocolate contains a high level of sugar and eating large amounts can have negative health effects.  Increases in your physical weight can lead to heart disease, diabetes and other health related problems.  Moderation will be the key in enjoying the beneficial effects of chocolate while still maintaining a healthy life style.

So go ahead and enjoy chocolate this holiday season. For us chocoholics, we can feel a little less guilt about our intake of the sweet indulgence.   Happy Holidays!

  4. I am looking to start a blog, though I don’t know which is the best way to go about this. Some of my friends recommend buying a domain from iPage, and then using WordPress. However, I feel that this is limiting. My next option is through TypePad as it appears to have the level of control desired, though this is relatively expensive.. . So my question is as follows: Which one is a better idea? Which one would you personally use?. . Thank you..

    Thanks for the concepts you talk about through your blog. In addition, many young women that become pregnant don’t even attempt to get medical insurance because they fear they couldn’t qualify. Although some states now require that insurers supply coverage despite the pre-existing conditions. Rates on these kinds of guaranteed programs are usually higher, but when considering the high cost of medical care it may be some sort of a safer way to go to protect the financial future.
