Easter is a time more than ever to indulge on chocolate! Here are 5 benefits to eating chocolate this Easter!

Easter can be a time for treating yourself & others to the many mouth-watering, delectably indulgent & tantalising Easter delights that are crafted from a gorgeous nine letter word C H O C O L A T E !  

Here are 5 great benefits to eating chocolate to help you truly enjoy this amazing Easter gift: 

  1. Eating chocolate releases endorphins into the brain which are known to decrease levels of stress & pain
  2. Dark chocolate boosts the metabolism which stimulates your body to burn fat (yes I'm sorry to have discounted milk & white chocolate on this one!)
  3. Eating chocolate releases several neurotransmitters that have positive effects on human feelings including phenylethylamine “the love drug”, serotonin & dopamine "mood-lifters" 
  4. Chocolate containing plant sterols (PS) and cocoa flavanols (CF) supports cardiovascular health by lowering cholesterol and improving blood pressure
  5. Those who consume chocolate (in moderation) everyday often have a lower BMI than those who don’t
