We can all agree that chocolate has a feel-good factor.
You are immediately transported to a world of bliss where you can forget your worldly troubles by indulging yourself.
The guilty pleasure relationship women have with chocolate is no hidden secret.
It is with a lot of greed that women give in to the temptation of a bewitching perfume and a melt-in-the-mouth happiness.
Interestingly, chocolate contains several interesting psychoactive chemicals.
These include anandamide, a neurotransmitter whose name comes from the Sanskrit word “Ananda” which means joy, happiness and delight.
But if you thought that chocolate was only used to delight your taste buds, you will be surprised.
Chocolate, especially the dark variety, has immense health benefits and can give you healthy, glowing, and flawless skin.
Dark chocolate contains catechins, polyphenols and flavanols. These organic compounds make it a powerful antioxidant.
Dark chocolate is made from cocoa bean extracts which are considered super fruits in terms of antioxidant capacity.
