Why You Should Eat Chocolate

You should eat more chocolate, peeps.

I eat chocolate every day. It makes me happy. Dark chocolate (70 per cent or more) really is good for you (honest!).  I could not live without it and here are 10 reasons why you should eat more chocolate (without binge eating it, obviously!):

1- It makes you feel good. Do you need any more reasons?

2- It is full of antioxidants which help your body fight disease.

3- It could reduce the risk of heart disease.

4- It can reduce the risk of stroke.

5- It is full of minerals like potassium, zinc and a 100g bar of 70% dark chocolate provides over 65% of the Recommended Dietary Allowance of iron.

6- It could improve your memory. A survey conducted over 40 years revealed that people who chocolate had a tendency to perform better in memory and cognitive tests than those who did not.

7- It can reduce cholesterol.

8- It can reduce anxiety by releasing endorphins.

9- It is good for the brain.
