Les bienfaits du chocolat noir
Dark chocolate has interesting nutritional properties if you choose it well black, with at least 70% cocoa, and if you do so in moderation.
Good for morale !
Chocolate has anti-stress properties. It is a comfort food that relaxes and provides a good mood... All because it contains magnesium which is a relaxing substance but also molecules close to the endorphins that are said to be "recreational". It therefore has an antidepressant role: It also contains caffeine that has toning effects and serotonin, a neurotransmitter antistress.
Good for your body !
Its antioxidant and protective properties allow it to prevent brain aging. Chocolate also has a preventive action against cardiovascular diseases due to the presence of polyphenols. Finally, it has a coagulant effect comparable to that of aspirin, which would lower the tension. Another advantage: Regular consumption of dark chocolate allows the skin to be twice as UV-sensitive. Farewell the sunburn from the first hours of exposure! For pregnant women, it promotes the growth of the fetus and helps preserve the placenta.
Which consumption to adopt ?
The higher the cocoa content, the richer it will be in antioxidants and low in sugar. It is best to choose the least industrially modified chocolate so that its nutritional values and benefits remain intact. It is recommended to consume 3 squares per day!
